The prevalence of sophisticated digital cameras and the ability to access and transmit images across networks can also be factors in increasing the quality of the learning experience offered. This consultancy has structured Web-Based Learning Material (not currently online) and Staff Development Seminars (PDF file 100 K) to increase the ability of university teachers to acquire, store, manipulate and use images successfully as part of their teaching.
