Why The Data Cleansing Process For Course Evaluations Must Evolve

calendarWednesday, January 18th 2017, 01:00 PM - 01:45 PM

Wednesday, January 18 at 1 p.m. EST Course evaluation data preparation can be a LONG and PAINFUL process. Often it occupies key institution resources to split files, parse information, chase down stakeholders, and compile data manually for submission. Join this webinar to learn how the Data Integrity Gateway (DIG) can help institutions automate processes and speed up course evaluation data preparation. eXplorance's CEO, Samer Saab, will demonstrate DIG and interact with all attendees by utilizing the tool to complete an example data preparation project. With its 2nd fully redesigned version, DIG offers an intuitive platform to take the seven week manual course evaluation data gathering process down to a two week automated process. Learn more about DIG in this three minute video. Register Now! Panelist: Samer Saab, eXplorance CEO Samer has worked directly with institutional researchers & IT members for for three years to best understand the pains of data collection and processing. DIG beta clients included UPenn, Washington State University, and Aarhaus University. Based on what was learned, Samer led an initiative to build a software platform to eliminate redundancies and make data purposeful for course evaluations.
