Abstract or Summary

The use of connected computers as interactive tools in the creation and presentation of media-rich content for teaching and learning is increasing rapidly. In the not too distant future, educational activity will no longer be restricted to print based materials, time or space. A readily accessible web-based learning environment will be expected. While it is technically possible to make media rich material available, this is an expensive activity. Institutions as well as teachers will want to be assured that the materials are of the highest standards and fit for their purpose. This paper outlines the process and procedures used in the development of an instrument to investigate students’ perceptions of digital materials presented in an English language course at a college in Japan. It also describes how a perceptual measure can be used to evaluate whether the content presented meets the learners’ needs.
