Multimedia and communications technology has great potential for education, provided that teachers are given training that enables them to make full use of it. Access to training is often a problem and, with very new technologies, there is a shortage of trainers who understand both the technology and the needs of teachers and learners. This paper reports on a project to involve users in the design and development of a real-time multimedia conferencing system for language tutoring and explains how it has yielded information about the kind of training needed to use such systems effectively. It has also generated training materials and shown that teachers can shape the technology and gain the confidence to transfer their expertise to others.
