Tapping the Power of Question Bank to Handle Very Large Questionnaires

calendarWednesday, May 29th 2019, 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM Eastern Timezone70 days remaining

Trigger logic is a common method used in questionnaire creation to automate what recipients get which questions. As more and more trigger logic is embedded in questionnaires, managing the logic conditions with consistency for data collection and reporting can become complex. Blue’s Question Bank feature is a repository of questions through which questionnaires from different projects can pull specified questions without the need for triggering logic. That power makes Question Bank particularly useful for institutions that deal with large or complex questionnaires. In this webinar we will be showcasing one such institution and their application of Question Bank.

Northwestern University’s Experience – Managing a Transition to Blue by Streamlining User Experience with Blue APIs, While Delivering Existing Report-Sharing Experience

calendarWednesday, April 10th 2019, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone21 days remaining
One of the key challenges when adopting a new technology or a new system is change management. Northwestern University had a long history of sharing course evaluation results with various stakeholders – students, faculties, and administrations. Thus, keeping the existing reports sharing experience with students, faculties, and administrations was identified as a key success factor for change management, in transitioning from an in-house electronic course evaluation system to the automated process of Blue. In this webinar, we will present how Northwestern partnered with eXplorance to tackle this challenge with a seamless integration between Blue and CAESARS (PeopleSoft-based SIS) using Blue pathway APIs.

Congrats! You finished implementing Blue at your institution, and the course evaluation projects are live. Student feedback data is coming in…but what do you do with it? Who do you send it to? How do you store it? How do you make meaningful reports based on the data you collected? This webinar will show how Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) addressed these question. We’ll do a deep-dive into how the OHSU School of Nursing uses reports from Blue in their course and teaching evaluation audit process, which informs their accreditation reporting and data requests from multiple stakeholders.
