Accessible e-learning resources, whether they form part of a blended programme of study or as a means of revision and reinforcement, are becoming a student expectation (Hibberd, Litton and Rowlett 2003). As part of our e-learning development at Skills@Library we are increasingly utilising tablet PCs and capture software to record nuggets of learning that can be embedded within VLE modules or accessed from our web pages, any time any place. An ongoing project utilising these technologies is the Maths Solutions resource which brings together a whole range of solutions to common maths problems. These learning nuggets are produced as short video clips capturing voice and hand written solutions (Niess and Walker 2010). Initial student and tutor feedback is positive with students identifying the benefits of accessing clips online whilst completing assignments or revising.
