In UNITEC students enrolled on an Automotive Trades course have access to a series of 32 CDX disks, entitled The Automotive Trainee Series that provides them with a learning resource in addition to their basic theoretical and practical teaching. This study attempted to: · discover what beneficial learning effects the students perceived as being currently provided by the multimedia component; · examine the extent to which the tutors integrated and adapted the multimedia material as part of their teaching; and · compare patterns of current disk utilization with those of the previous year. Results showed that although both staff and students thought the multimedia material valuable, its overall utilization by students had diminished over time. The reason for this appears to be the lack of integration of the resource by tutors into their teaching. Furthermore, tutors had generally not adapted the material for their own needs although where workbooks had been provided, this seemed to increase the students' satisfaction.
