Abstract: The present study aims to investigate how the use of existing and emerging technologies can help develop effectively to create dynamic and more accessible learning resources to allow both learning and teaching. The use of Smartphones, virtual learning environments (VLEs), podcasting / vodcasting, QR codes and interactive voting response systems to assist the author's teaching of business and consecutive interpreting was analysed as a case study. In the case study, questionnaires supplemented with interviews, have been used to investigate the viability of using the advanced learning technology in the process of learning and teaching and identify the beneficial effects on students' learning and satisfaction. The results of this study indicate that the students have benefitted from the use of advanced learning technologies, without the learning experience actually becoming about learning how to use the technologies themselves.
