This handbook, which is intended for further education (FE) practitioners and decision makers in Britain looking to develop high-quality information and learning technology (ILT), presents practical guidelines for conducting the self-assessment, analysis, prioritizing, and action planning required to make strategic decisions about ILT at their FE college. Presented first are a preface that explains the handbook's purpose within the context of the Further Education Development Agency's Quality in Information and Learning Technology (QUILT) initiative and an overview of the handbook. The following topics are discussed in the handbook's seven sections: external change factors and learning from history (development of information technology and information in the context of ILT); learning and the management of change (organizational transformation, learning organizations, and quality and planning); organizational management of ILT (application and infrastructure, future-proofing, curriculum management, and information management); learning environments; individual learning; learning content; and setting quality standards for ILT (key points and quality indicators). The handbook contains 19 references. (MN)
