Hi Simon,

I usually meet some sentences like that
- Special effects on movies are powerful visual effects, often created using technology.
- more students are motivated to do homework using online resources.

How can we use "using techonoly" or "using online resources" instead of "by using technology" or "by using online resources"?

What kind of grammar is this?

Thank you!
