This project was funded under the JISC Exchange for Learning Programme (X4L). First, we would like to thank Andy Wroe, former project officer and Ian Levinson, teacher at the Colchester Sixth Form College, for drafting much of the content of the introductory modules, and in Ian’s case, evaluating the resources with his own students. We would like to further acknowledge: the project Steering Committee for their input and expert advice; the teachers and tutors who advised on drafting and evaluating the resources; and the support of the UK Data Archive, in particular Anne Etheridge and Claire Flaxton for their work in helping promoting the project, and those staff who helped evaluate the web resources. Also thanks to Eric Tanenbaum in the Department of Government for his input into the final data analysis sections of the resources. Finally, we would like to thank Susan Eales, X4L Programme Manager for her unwavering enthusiasm and support throughout the project, and Philip Butler from RSC London for helping us get rolling with approaching FE networks.
