Planning tools


To determine your institution's next steps and to ensure effective and appropriate decision-making, an institutional audit tool and three planning tools can be downloaded here. All tools are available as Microsoft Word documents and can be adapted to suit individual contexts.

An institutional audit tool for mobile and wireless and other forms of e-learning.

If you are a senior manager, the audit tool invites you to take a snapshot of your current situation and assess your institution's readiness to move on to mobile and wireless technologies. It is recommended that the audit tool is used prior to specific planning for mobile and wireless learning, to enable underlying issues to be fully addressed. By returning to use the tool at a later stage, it will be possible to measure the distance travelled.
