Abstract

This paper describes how a system comprising a learning environment and digital repository is being embedded into the Design Engineering teaching and learning. It then maps out the issues that have been encountered, how these have been overcome and how they will affect other departments or institutions as such tools are scaled up and rolled out. These issues are categorised as technological, pedagogical and cultural and include the adequate provision of support, creating a critical mass of resources, ensuring quality and integration with other technologies. Successful embedding and sustainability requires that senior managers reflect on these key issues at a departmental and/or institutional level before implementation.
