This research study has gathered evidence to support the Educational Recording Agency (ERA) in exploring possible ways to develop policies and approaches that could enhance teacher access to digital online resources. Existing studies show that many teachers across the United Kingdom (UK) already use video and audio clips with learners to support teaching and learning. Increasingly, however, use of these resources is encouraged and needed for learning purposes in home as well as in school situations; there are clear implications concerned with the management of these resources. Online audio-visual resources to support teachers are becoming increasingly accessible, not just in the UK, but in other countries worldwide. Audio-visual (AV) resources offer particular qualities and affordances that support teaching and learning, but it should be recognised that different resources can offer different values and qualities to meet more specific teacher needs.
