Polly Long is the course leader for the media technology programme. She joined the team in September 2009 as an associate lecturer. During this time she also worked as a part-time media manager at the BBC and assisted with outside broadcast events such as Glastonbury and Glade festivals. 

Polly became a researcher in the audio and media technology research group in September 2010, focusing on the use of video, interactive materials and web 2.0 in postgraduate learning for a project in conjunction with Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust. The project consisted of developing online training materials for junior doctors training in emergency medicine. Polly joined the team full time in 2012.  She is now pursuing her interest in the use of media content on mobile devices having completed an MSc in Mobile Media Applications Development at Portsmouth University.

Polly has strong connections with the media technology industry, particularly with the course alumni and organises work experience, placements and graduate positions with companies within the broadcast industry. 

Polly is particularly interested in outside broadcasting and has gained many links with large outside broadcast providers over the last eight years. She has a keen interest in e-learning research, predominantly the use of video and mobile applications for online and distance learning.
