This chapter considers the qualities of a rich media-enhanced experience. It challenges the over-dependence of academic practice on written texts, arguing that it is anachronistic. The written word, in its many forms, has proven to be a highly flexible medium for academic purposes, and will remain so. However, the continued dominance of the written word in academic practice indicates a lack of awareness amongst academics, or their lack of confidence, about media-enhanced learning and its rich possibilities.
