We report on a preliminary evaluation of the delivery of engaging, flexible and learnercentred experiences using screencasting technology. This technological/pedagogical innovation is directed at enabling students to develop deeper understanding of key mathematical concepts in order to equip them to undertake degrees in engineering, sciences and statistics. The methods, issues and outcomes of our research demonstrate the success of the MathsCasts that have been designed, but also attest to the merit of long-term design based research. The results presented show the value of visual, interactive screencasts for the teaching of mathematics, and the positive impact that this technology has on student learning. We present initial results from a student survey to identify students’ active learning strategies.
