Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceedingpeer-review


An action learning investigation was undertaken to determine the requirements of a virtual learning environment (VLE) that would provide a meeting place and document repository for taught postgraduate (MA: Design and Digital Media) and PhD students within Coventry School of Art and Design. A commercial, collaborative support system was piloted to determine the needs of the students, stakeholder and functionality issues that might influence wider uptake of such a system. The experiences are explained in terms of the Technology Acceptance Model.
