The DialogPlus project involves two English and two American universities in sharing learning activities based on digital resources. The subject domain of Geography can draw on a wide variety of digital resources such as maps, databases, web pages, and images. Embedding these in well-designed learning activities for undergraduate and postgraduate students poses many challenges, including accessibility, accommodating learning and teaching preferences, quality, rights clearance and approaches to assessment. The author of this paper, a researcher at the University of Southampton, works with the educators, analysing, supporting and evaluating their innovative approaches, and with computer scientists charged with resolving the complex issues of sharing resources between four institutions each with a different learning management system/environment. This paper reflects on the early project experiences and the design of a learning activity toolkit also being developed at Southampton.
