This paper reports on the development of a new system for training mentors of student teachers in Post Compulsory Education & Training (PCET) by a team of educational practitioners at the University of Greenwich with little previous experience in multimedia development. It's rationale is discussed in the light of the difficulties of providing training and support. A solution is proposed with regard to Dearing's National Committee of Inquiry (1997) into Higher Education in the UK, which states that, in cases where other methods have failed, improvements in motivation and understanding may occur through the use of new technology. The system combines the development of an Interactive Multimedia Learning Environment (IMLE) with an On-Line campus. The prototype is discussed and issues of design heuristics are raised.
