An investigation was developed to apply alternative means of helping with student learning through the use of learning technology advancements. The aims of this investigation were to implement a technology in the teaching process, facilitate students to participate in a module outside the classroom, and determine the perceived effectiveness of the application of the technology to assist with the learning process. The implementation of the suggested TEL project involved filming tutorial sessions, uploading them to the on-line repository known as Blackboard LearnTM (BB). The collected data revealed that approximately 85% of students felt that the application of the suggested TEL in the tutorial sessions helped them to learn the course materials, helped make them feel more engaged, and supported independent learning of their topic. Moreover the output of this investigation also showed that the process of adding digital content to a course requires careful planning to create materials that can add value while engaging student interest.
