Three stages can be identified in the evolution of audiographic technologies. Over the last two decades staff at Southern Cross University have made use of this technology during each of its developmental stages. In 2005 and 2006 the School of Commerce and Management successfully introduced and adopted one of the new stage three software products, Elluminate Live! In 2007 the University purchased a site licence allowing unlimited university wide use. To understand and assist in the uptake of this new generation of audiographics, this paper identifies and maps features against traditional teaching and learning practices. The capabilities actually extend what is now possible in the classroom and with far fewer resources. The potential to make meaningful positive responses to long standing calls for a shift in learning and teaching to a more student-centred paradigm away from an instructor focused one has never been more attainable.
