Rogerson-Revell (2007) argued that technologies can enhance language development through “synchronous and asynchronous communications, which, at their best, can facilitate real-time interaction, authentic dialogue and intelligent, customized feedback” (p. 60). The intention of this research was to provide insight into the lived perceptions of students who participated in language learning in various media rich contexts. It provides observations on how traditional classroom delivery can be supported by multimedia for cognitive reprocessing and the support of related curricular activities. It also provides an argument for the support of distance based language learning and the utility of supporting multimedia for both student engagement and the provision of contextual culturally relevant learning. A discussion is also provided on some of the pedagogical, didactic, and technological issues that can both help and hinder the learning process.
