Za) illustrates well the problems that many multimedia initiatives faced in sustaining the constructivist pedagogical principle of guided self-exploration, and also in responding to changes in university policy or curriculum in the longer term. In 1997 the MEG began to work with the university Writing Centre to develop tutorials supporting students in developing an understanding of conventions of referencing and the use of information from external sources (Deacon et al. 1997).

Authors argued that theoretical approaches from social anthropology and applied linguistics – with their focus on the contextual and social nature of language and literacies – offered perspectives which were able to take account of the multiple discourses and literacies which were involved in student learning in higher education.
