Abstract: The CADARN Learning Portal aims to stimulate and support the production of educational media across Wales in partnership with five universities. The extensive bilingual website utilises the resultant media to inspire potential new students into university by setting them alongside course and graduate employer information. The project funded a set of common production equipment, a production team to run workshops, parachute group tutorial sessions, collaborative productions as well as create a comprehensive set of resources to support educational media production. The website has been met with some success. At the time of writing, it hosts 1267 courses with 460 educational resources and recently won a commitment from its partnership to extend the project until the end of 2017.
