Unlike the formal evaluations of earlier literature, the studies reported here focus on whether a teaching development is functioning as intended - with adjustments made if it is not - rather than on demonstrating the superiority of the development relative to others that might be available. Accordingly, the evidence gathered has an emphasis on whether students use the technology in the ways intended, whether they understand, think and learn as intended, and whether the outcomes of their learning show the characteristics that were planned. All studies are works in progress, and hence they should be viewed as ways in which teaching developments can be informed and improved by systematic evaluation, and how the evaluations can be enhanced with successive iterations.
