[SEA:PAT] Systemic-Evolutionary Approach to the Introduction of Multimedia into the Classroom (Gauss et al., 2002)
A needs analysis was carried out in the context of the development of multimedia learning modules and a web-based learning environment on the subject of process and systems technology.

Besides specific questions posed in relation to attitudes towards and expectations from multimedia in teaching, the course as it already stood was also evaluated.

Quattropole Reports: A needs analysis "e-Learning in Language Training" (Reuter et al., 2005)
The report deals with a needs analysis in the field of computer-aided language teaching. The goal was to analyse needs and expectations related to an e-learning language program. Importantly, this study not only documented needs in relation to language education, it was also designed to arrive at a better understanding of potential users' familiarity with the computer medium and their abilities to use it. The needs analysis was conducted by means of a questionnaire that allowed the formulation of specific recommendations regarding the desired characteristics of an e-learning language program.
The questionnaire can be found in French, German, and English in the appendix of the report. A more detailed description of the questionnaire can be found starting on page 16. Even though the questionnaire cannot be completely adopted as it stands, it does contain ideas for question formulation or about themes which must be examined during the course of a needs analysis. The report offers information about how one can use the results.
