Abstract Research indicates the role of e-learning tools in empowering and motivating learners and effecting education change is significant. E-learning tools can also challenge traditional forms of assessment and provide opportunities for diversification in reporting and learner feedback. This research focuses upon a pilot study that involved the introduction of an elearning initiative, point of vision camera glasses, in building and construction at RMIT University. The embedding of these e-tools was the catalyst used to empower staff to review traditional models of assessment and create new models of learner-based assessment and feedback. The pilot study results reveal significant improvements in learner and staff satisfaction, improved curriculum outcomes, greater confidence in using e-technology, increased staff motivation to develop new assessment models and improved learner feedback. The results highlight the advantages of e-technology in learner assessment and create and interesting launching pad for future studies using such novel technology.
