OVERVIEW

DoMedia is a complete training solution for tutors to learn the fundamentals of planning, designing and developing effective media‑based learning modules that can be incorporated in a range of delivery modalities. Users are taken from the basics to competency in producing successful media-based products that convey information with confidence and clarity.

Staff that participated in the project demonstrated a clearer understanding of the process and improved their skills and enhanced their confidence. Feedback from learners was positive with 100% reporting that the videos were helpful or very helpful.
