The purpose of the evaluation was to:
1. Update information last collected during a formative programme evaluation in 2008/9;
2. Survey and interview a broad selection of individuals drawn from past course participants, elearning tutors, training chiefs who are eLIO clients, selected staff at COL and the eLIO team;
3. Gather quantitative and qualitative data that evidenced how eLIO courses impact different programme participants; and
4. Create a broad picture of the health of the programme.
The report will be used to help COL and eLIO management decide if the programme has performed as intended, to highlight areas where the programme could grow or adapt, and to provide a benchmark against which to gauge future evaluations.
