This article reports the findings of a study into the use of technology in three self-access centres. It is based on the results of an earlier study that applied an evaluative framework to compare the use of technology in 45 self access centres worldwide and identified the three most intensive users of technology. This article describes the types of support offered by these centres and the technological tools to deliver that support. It also presents a case study of the centres to identify the unique characteristics of their support and to examine the effects on their wider educational context.
