Contextual Inquiry Note taking form

Looks like a good start to me. We may find we want to refine it after  
our initial contextual inquiries. My only question is do we want to  
explore anything about their content management that is not related  
to course materials? "Collaborate on content" gets at that a bit, but  
there may be other things they are doing (e.g. in terms of research,  
or even personal stuff) with content that it might help to have  
information on. For instance, if an instructor wants to use the same  
system to manage their course images and personal photos, that could  
be important to know. Or we might find best practices from systems  
they are using outside the CMS realm. We will of course want to have  
most of the focus on course materials, but not sure if we might want  
to touch on other areas briefly?
