As you work through your example you should write notes about:
 
* which technologies are being used
 
* why those technologies are being used (you might find it helpful to look at [http://www.med8.info/dictated/rationales.htm the 19 rationales for using ICT] which were developed as part of [http://www.med8.info/dictated/index.htm the dICTatEd project])
 
** what are the overall aims?
 
** why use this technology rather than some other one for this purpose?
 
* how each of the technologies is being used
 
* what seems to work well (and how do you know)?
 
* what problems or issues are there (and how might they be overcome)?
