Student feedback through smartphones
As an educational institution, you deliver a service to your students. You teach them the knowledge and skills they need to achieve success in their careers. To do that, it is important that your education is tailored to the wants and needs of students. Additionally, to provide them with the ultimate experience during their studies, you want all facilities to fit their wants and needs. The only way to achieve this is by gathering feedback. Especially now, when students are studying from home, that can be a challenge.
Suddenly every student is studying from home, due to the coronavirus crisis. This has resulted in educational institutions having to find alternative solutions: digital lectures, digital exams, digital student presentations, and more. Everything has been arranged in a short period of time, without the possibility to do research and find out what is effective and what is not. All the more reasons to actively gather feedback from your students, to see what works.
Feedback is key
To help gather feedback, we at StuComm have developed the feedback feature, which shows its value in this situation. The feedback feature allows you to send individuals, groups or all of your students, short surveys. In this survey, you can ask what they think of certain aspects of your educational institutions. Normally, you could ask them about the quality of lectures, the quality of exams and the quality of different facilities. This can be done physically, but especially now, gathering feedback digitally is a great solution. In this situation, asking feedback about the methods of learning is an essential topic.
Digital solutions help educational institutions during this time service their students. With the limited time they have had, educational institutions are not sure that what they have come up with, suits the wants and needs of students. With the feedback feature, you can easily gather feedback on the way you educate them and what you could improve to help students succeed in these times.
Immediate and complete feedback
Multiple universities are successfully leveraging the feedback feature to evaluate digital learning. With a short survey, students are asked to rate different subjects on a scale of 1 to 5. This way, you immediately know if students are satisfied or not. In addition to a general rating, it is important to know the reasons behind this, especially for a low rating.
To achieve that, students that provide a low rating are asked to provide short qualitative feedback about what could be improved. With that information, you have everything you need to optimise your digital facilities and help your students to be successful.
