What will you use this information for?
By monitoring the above factors constant improvement and adaptation of the digital diary can be implemented, this ensures the success of the diary.
How it is used for assessment can be analyzed to further improve the concept and allowing for a larger content of the course to be online.
This will mean the content and material can be kept more relevant and current to reflect modern practice in the industry.
Not only will the information be used for just the digital diary, it can be used to adapt and keep the whole course up to date and relevant to modern practice and expectations of the stake holders.
Also keep the content fresh for student and facilitator alike.
