  • Phone contact for case studies

  • Online forum would be useful

  • Have limitations of evaluation technique is useful

  • Qualitative is common – interview and qualitative

  • Cost benefit analysis is useful for CSIRO examples

  • Attribution – were you influenced by something else or this project? (Categorises the other influences)

  • Links to online surveys and tips to use that would be useful

  • Need to say what evaluation to have when ie. Evaluation plan for duration of project

  • City of Ballarat – project on planning and how engaged people are in programs – would be willing to pilot toolbox

  • Behaviour Change blog – through conference, could be useful to have this on site for blog

  • Survey – difficult to follow up on outcomes. Survey monkey is useful

  • Needs to be able to change the toolbox – not have it static, eg, add case studies, reviews of tools etc – make it interactive

  • Have volunteer from City of Ballarat willing to pilot the toolbox

  • Wicki page – people can add their own information and use as a blog

  • The National Social Marketing Centre in the UK is a good example of an online toolbox
