calendarWednesday, October 23rd 2019, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone2 days remaining

At this moment, surveys are being used to gather data at every level of your institution. Whether it’s a researcher collecting information for a study, an instructor capturing the voice of their students or a student gathering data as part of a class project, every stakeholder at your institution should be able to create the surveys they need, when they need, and the way they need.

Join this webinar and meet BlueX, a powerful new tool for decentralized surveys built with and for higher education. After working with dozens of institutions for over three years, Explorance has developed BlueX to be familiar, flexible, and able to create any survey that you can imagine. In this session, we will showcase the features and functionalities that make BlueX the future of survey software.

In Just a Few Clicks of the Mouse! Automate and Save Valuable Time with Blue

calendarWednesday, January 15th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone86 days remaining
Do you set up a course evaluation survey for each part of term, every term, every time? The Alamo Colleges District is comprised of 5 Colleges with 9 different parts of term, all surveying at the same time. The impact would have been 45 survey instances, until we were able to configure and structure the data so that we could set up one survey project to cover over 8,000 courses. We were able to automate over 181,000 surveys to be sent within the one survey instance in just a few clicks of the mouse, even the reports are automated to go out to the faculty. Join us as we show you what we did to automate using Blue, so you can replicate this too and save yourself some valuable time.

Presenters:
  • Steven Szeszko II, Process Functional Manager, Alamo Colleges District
  • Michael Lee Jones, Professional Services Consultant, Explorance

Quantifying the Effect of the Learning Experience on…Learning

calendarWednesday, February 5th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone107 days remaining
Can course evaluation results tell us anything about student learning? Sheridan has created a robust multivariate model that allows us to objectively measure (isolate) the extent to which a high-quality learning experience differentially impacts learning in subsequent courses (vs. lower-quality learning experiences). The effect is significant and meaningful; independent of grades (and several other variables), the quality of experience in a course impacts future leaning. In this webinar, we will review the findings and methodology, including how course evaluation data were used in the analysis, as well as implications of the work and opportunities for further research.
  • Feb. 5, 2:00pm – 3:00pm, Eastern time zone

Just Don't Call It "Blue" and Other Important Lessons From The Ohio State University’s Implementation Journey

calendarWednesday, April 8th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone170 days remaining
What could be challenging about implementing one survey for an entire campus? One that must be available on the university’s own mobile app. With emails that conform to strict branding standards. And have optional comments. Plus reports for seemingly random people. Just for fun let’s go live during summer when there are 8 different sessions. After that- half a million tasks for Autumn will be no problem, right? Why not add Dynamic Report Access? In fact let’s throw 10 years of historical data in there for good measure. In this webinar, we will show you that using super powers and a band of misfits, not only were did we make all of this happen, we boosted response rates by over 15% at the same time.
  • Apr. 8, 2:00pm – 3:00pm, Eastern time zone (EDT),
