Interest has grown in recent years in what is sometimes referred to as the learner experience, because it situates learners at the centre of the experience, empowers and motivates them to assume responsibility for their own learning, and adopts teaching and learning strategies designed to encourage students to see themselves as active thinkers and problem-solvers. Learner-centred education may be facilitated by technology, for example through the provision of online learning material. Flexible, self paced delivery of learning resources has the capacity to engage students in both cognitive and metacognitive processing of abstract concepts, Examples will be drawn from a project that uses mathematical screen casts to assist student to learn abstract concepts independently.
