  10. 10. Evaluation Findings
  11. 11. STRENGTHS (1) The informality of the sessions: • “I like the informality – don’t change that!” • “I really liked the session and found it useful. It is also good to meet others using tablets and learning from each other. It’s a good informal forum.”
  12. 12. STRENGTHS • “It’s a really good chance/opportunity to find out how iPads can be used. Its assumed we know what we’re doing with them, the coffee club provided a relaxed environment to share ideas and learn how to make the most out of mobile devices. Not too technical and not too basic, just a really good forum to find out ‘stuff’.”
  13. 13. STRENGTHS (2) No pressure on attendees to share: • “I really liked the format especially not feeling pressure to share unless you wanted to – I’m still getting to grips with using an iPad for work purposes and still not sure I use it to the optimum functionality….”
  14. 14. CHALLENGES (1) Time constraints: • “I'll like to come and try this out, but I am away next week.” • Please keep me on your list as I might be able to come another time.” • “I can never do a Tuesday: any chance of having the occasional Wednesday or Thursday?”
  15. 15. CHALLENGES (2) Technical issues: Institutional WiFi problems • “A positive experience despite some technical issues which limited one or two demonstrations.” • “More preparation in making sure stuff is working and to reduce technical issues and waiting around.”
