ocTEL Expectations Questionnaire
This questionnaire looks at the expectations of those registered to take part in ocTEL (Open Course in Technology Enhanced Learning http://octel.alt.ac.uk). This is part of a wider evaluation of ocTEL. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide feedback to the ocTEL team, and review the extent that intended outcomes are achieved. Other evaluation data will be collected from:
* Weekly polls for all ocTEL participants.
* Three evaluation themed questionnaires sent to members of the ocTEL evaluation panel.
* Website and forum analytics.

This expectations questionnaire should take 5-10 minutes to complete.

All data gathered will be held in accordance with the 1998 Data Protection Act. All data will remain confidential, comments will be anonymised and individual respondents will not be identifiable in resulting reports, unless you indicate otherwise. Findings will be reported to ALT for the purposes of improving ocTEL now and for informing any future cohorts. Findings may also be disseminated via blog posts, presentations, journals or conference papers.

If you have questions or concerns about this study please contact Dr Rachel Harris (rachel@inspire-research.co.uk) or Maren Deepwell (maren.deepwell@alt.ac.uk). For more information see Rachel's blog post about the questionnaire http://octel.alt.ac.uk/your-expectations-of-octel/
