I am currently writing a dissertation for my masters on the topic of vle
implementation and use. I was hoping members of this list would be able to
answer some research questions.

if you can spare the time, I would be most grateful. below are two
questionnaires, one for teachers/lecturers who use the technology and one
for people involved with vle implementation.

please state the VLE you used (i.e. blackboard, webct etc.) and the sector
you work in (i.e. school/fe/he).

if you are able to partcipate, many thanks in advance!

regards,

amit jadeja (msc e-business, university of london 2005/pgce pcet,
