Pre-service education students are exposed to a variety of technology while studying at university. This generally occurs as part of the course they study, while on practicum and informally, both at home and socially. This paper focuses on the experiences of students studying an educational technology course at one Australian university in Sydney and using data from two different studies and presents a case for determining the best time that pre-service education students are exposed to learning design and the Learning Activity Management System (LAMS). The data suggests that students may be more able to integrate skills learnt with content knowledge in later years at university.
