An Expert in Absentia: A Case-Study for Using Technology to Support Recording Studio Practice
This paper examines the use of a Learning Technology Interface (LTI) to support the completion of a recording workbook with audio examples over a 10-week period. The VLE provided contingent support to studio users for technical problems encountered in the completion of four recording tasks. Previous research has investigated how students collaborate and problem-solve during a short session in the recording studio using technology as a contingent support tool. In addition, online message boards have been used to record problems encountered when completing a prescribed task (critical-incident recording). A mixed-methods case study approach was used in this study. The students interactions within the LTI were logged (i.e. frequency, time, duration, type of support) and their feedback was elicited via a user questionnaire at the end of the project. Data for this study demonstrates that learning technology can be a successful support tool, and also highlights the frequency and themes concerning the types of recording practice information accessed by the learners.
