Bob Powell is Associate Director: Lifelong Learning at Becta. Steve Davies is ProjectOfficer with the Ferl team and carried out the bulk of the statistical analysis.Claire Gill and Sarah Swaney of the Ferl team provided cogent analysis of thecollege ILT strategy updates.The questionnaire was based on one initially developed for the 1999 survey by AlisonPage of Becta. This survey, like its predecessors, has benefited from the commentsand observations of a range of individuals and agencies, including members of the FEILT Committee and its successor body, the National Learning Network ProgrammeBoard, officers of the Department for Education and Skills, the Learning and SkillsCouncil, the Learning and Skills Development Agency (formerly FEDA), NILTAand the Joint Information Systems Committee.Particular thanks are due to Kevin Donovan of LSDA, who organised a one dayseminar on evaluation of the impact of ILT, with particular reference to the NationalLearning Network, at which the main findings of this report were first aired, and tothe members of that group for their feedback.The online survey facility was provided by Infopoll.
