The School of Engineering and Computing (SEC) at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), as with many other institutions involved in the teaching of engineering, has an increasingly diverse student body. In order to support the different learning styles and modes of attendance of these students, a number of technologies and strategies have been applied to improve the choice and flexibility of access to the learning resources. This paper summarises the recent work carried out by members of the Computer and Engineering Educational Research group in the SEC at GCU and evaluates these methods and approaches to using technology to promote personalised learning. These mechanisms address, in a particularly practical way, the use of audio and video lecture capture in pilot projects, creating repositories of targeted learning resources which are accessible via a wide range of platforms in a variety of formats. These resources are designed to be integral to the teaching plan and are intended to enhance the reflective processes in order to aid the understanding, embedding and retention of the presented information. The results obtained from these activities are discussed and, based on these results, plans for further development of the work are presented.
