Understanding learning environments is essential to the educational process. Our study focuses on access to technology, specifically video equipment and computer equipment, and its impact on student’s perception of learning effectiveness. We also examine the impact that lecture theatre infrastructure such as desk configuration, the presence of windows, square footage, lecture theatre shape and other factors have on learning ability. Understanding lecture theatres as social organizations are a very important means towards measuring effectiveness in the educational process.Undeniably, there has been substantial research on several aspects of technology as an aid in the lecture theatre. There is research concerning the use of technology in a variety of ways including real time video conferencing,internet access to worldwide information resources, long distance collaboration with students and scientists,simulations of problem solving experiences, and technology aiding university/parent/community communication. Learning takes place within a web of social relationships as teachers and pupils interact both formally and informally. University are institutional spaces for communities of learners, including both students and teachers.
