Imagineering 
This RLO was designed to support an introductory lecture on the subject of Imagineering, a core concept within the curriculum for Events Marketing Management; but could be easily used by anyone who has an interest in marketing theory, or art, design or product design. The interesting aspect of this RLO is the introduction of a ‘boiled sweet’ (use Strawberry & Cream flavour Campino) that students are asked to interact with. The objective of the RLO is to encourage students to view everyday activities in a different way in order to enhance their perception of the value of the activity. In this way, students can gain a greater understanding of how a new economy can be created through an experience.

Multiple intelligence 
Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences identifies musical intelligence as being demonstrated by both the ability to create music and the ability to understand music. Four key operatives of musical intelligence have been identified by Gardner: rhythm, timbre, pitch, and melody/harmony. The learning object is designed to focus individually on each of those functions of musical intelligence and the ability to understand music.

Stakeholders 
This resource is designed to take students through the process of applying a stakeholder analysis to a case study. It takes the coffee industry as an example. This is an industry in crisis, and the livelihoods of 25 million coffee producers around the world are at stake. The main issue is the price of coffee, which has fallen by almost 50% since 2004. The charity, Oxfam has suggested a coffee rescue plan, and for this to work, they will need to influence the key stakeholders. The student has to identify the correct group of stakeholders, and gets feedback as to how accurate their choice has been.
