  • Access: how accessible is a particular technology for learners? How flexible is it for a particular target group? Costs: what is the cost structure of each technology? What is the unit cost per student? Teaching and learning: what kinds of learning are needed? What instructional approaches will best meet these needs? What are the best technologies for supporting this teaching and learning? Interactivity and user-friendliness: what kind of interaction does this technology enable? How easy is it to use? Organisational issues: what are the organisational requirements, and the barriers to be removed, before this technology can be used successfully? What changes in organisation need to be made? Novelty: how new is this technology? Speed: how quickly can courses be mounted with this technology? How quickly can materials be changed?
