Abstract This chapter presents a case study of technology integration to support student learning in a first year operations research course at a dual-mode university. The course is taken by on-campus and distance students at the same time. It is shown how both groups are treated the same in this course in terms of provision of course material, access to the course learning management system, and to screencasts of live classes and additional explanations. The only difference between the two groups is the on-campus students’ ability to attend live face-to-face classes and to interact with the lecturer. The chapter demonstrates how screencasting is used effectively in online learning. Its objective is to share good practice of technology enhanced learning.

Interest for the project  4 Not directly related as not about languages but a lot of what is drawn from this study regarding choice, flipped classes etc is very interesting. It looks at some very innovative ways of using screencasting and lecture capture Available on-line
