Or alternatively, it is in the Elevate Team's Report area; http://wolseyweb.ucs.ac.uk/blogs/elevate/?page_id=70

For instance, the following quote illustrates the degree to which some lecturers have embedded their use of Tablets,

“photography specific apps have allowed me to illustrate techniques (demonstrations of shutter and aperture to BA Hons Graphic Design students via the camera simulator app). We have viewed student negatives on the ilovefilm app, and used the viewfinder pro app to make lens choices with students” Response A in Evaluation Survey, 2013
