  15. Selection Criteria Tony Bates (1995), proposes the “ACTIONS’ model as the criteria for selection of technologies: 1: Access- Staff and learners need adequate access to technology 2: Costs-must consider initial and ongoing costs 3: Teaching and learning functions-strengths and weaknesses of different technologies need to be clearly understood

  16. Selection Criteria Tony Bates (1995), proposes the “ACTIONS’ model as the criteria for selection of technologies: 4: Interactivity and user friendliness-interactions are important for the learning process 5: Organisational issues-organisational support is critical for long-term success

  17. Selection Criteria Tony Bates (1995), proposes the “ACTIONS’ model as the criteria for selection of technologies: 6: Novelty-novelty of technology may be important for attracting funding 7: Speed-time required to develop, update and deliver learning materials is an important factor
