A review of over eighty studies which purported to focus on students’
experiences of e-learning highlighted some surprising results (Sharpe et al.
2005),1 finding that few studies actually focused on the student experience.
The JISC Learning Experience Project (LXP) is working with four of the HE
Academy subject centres2 to explore students’ experiences of technology;
with a particular interested in discipline difference in the use of technology for

in using e-learning. This is being achieved by: collecting data on students’
experiences of using technology to support learning activities, describing the
students’ personal background and learning context, and drawing out learner
beliefs and e-learning strategies. After this initial situated exploration the focus
