Feedback was collected via an online feedback form that students were encouraged to complete after accessing the study guides. This feedback form will remain in place as a method for continuous improvement of the resources.
As part of the project, two focus groups were set up. Students with specific learning dificulties were asked to comment on:
- Elements of the presentations that they liked,
- points for improvement,
- the ways in which they used the presentations,
- impact on learning.
Detailed comments were also collected via email and one-to-one meetings with students.
