    Abstract

    This paper is an attempt at uncovering some online practices that it is proposed utilise the age-old lineages of the visual comic and cartoon, which can help one better understand how to create and learn through interaction enabling technologies such as those available today. As a secondary theme the paper looks at the potential for new media practices (using the label to cover a range of disciplines from design to fine arts in the digital realm) to encourage a different type of educational dialogue between student and tutor, a dialogue which could be useful in developing student confidence and thus re-engage them in academic enquiry.
