Technology is changing the face of continuing medical education (CME). However, will it improve the quality of CME? No longer is it sufficient to count heads or ask if participants liked the experience. It is time to look at CME’s influence on performance, habits, and perhaps even outcomes, and to use data to continuously improve CME programs and practices. As CME experiences integrate into professional life in the forms of online knowledge tools streamed to the bed side, mobile advice and e-coaching, all of which pay scant attention to time or place, evalua­tion methods and questions must evolve to provide meaningful feedback. Keywords: Evaluation, continuing medical education, CME, technology, online learning, mobile learning.
