The easy availability of films on the internet is having profound effects on the learner experience of Film Studies undergraduates and gaining an understanding of how this group uses technology to analyse film will enable educational practitioners to make better informed decisions when designing programmes of learning. This contribution critically evaluates pedagogic frameworks and concepts of good practice, and reports on a case study based on interviews with third year Film Studies undergraduates studying at a UK Russell Group university. The main conclusions are that undergraduates require additional advice and guidance when accessing subject-appropriate content and that pedagogic frameworks have much to offer in the development of digital learning resources. Further study is also required, at the heart of which is the expansion and development of secure digital video repositories for use in education.
