Seb's analysis that the key message from the report is 'focus on people not technology' is spot on - this was the overwhelming message from all of the respondents - and one which we often seem to find it difficult to hear or take seriously enough.

Thought I should flag up that whilst Deirdre Cook and I are at the Open University the rest of the eSIR team are not from the OU and represent a number of other key stakeholder groups:

Roger Broadie is the Director of Broadie Associates Ltd and of Learning Markets Analysis Ltd. He is also Chief Executive for the European Education Partnership (http://www.eep-edu.org) and a member of the Naace Advisers and Consultants Community Working Group.

Karen Ford has extensive experience of working in the FE sector. She was the NLN ILT Subject Mentor for Key Skills and the NLN ILT Subject Mentor Co-ordinator.

David Morris is Professor of Business Education and the Director of eLearning at the University of Coventry, and was the founding Dean of Coventry Business School.

Alison Twiner was a research fellow working at Nottingham Trent University before moving to a research post at the OU in early 2006.

Jean Underwood is a professor at Nottingham Trent University and co-editor of Computers & Education.
