Automatically Update Demographic Information in Live Projects

calendarWednesday, January 29th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM Eastern Timezone1 days remaining

Automatically updating demographic information in live projects is the eagerly anticipated functionality that allows specific course and student demographic data to be updated daily after the project has been published. Increasingly, institutions are launching course evaluation projects at the beginning of the term which allows them to capture feedback for shorter term and online courses. This has put an extra burden on the SIS/Blue data admin to ensure that course data is accurate before the evaluation project is published in Blue. In this webinar, we will walk through the process of setting up this functionality, configuring it, and examining some important use cases and the impact that this functionality will have on these projects.

Quantifying the Effect of the Learning Experience on…Learning

calendarWednesday, February 5th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone8 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.

360 Reports: Harnessing the Power of Story Telling

calendarTuesday, March 24th 2020, 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM Eastern Timezone56 days remaining

Institutions can present 360 feedback in an efficient story telling manner so that it becomes a mechanism that drives meaningful change. Every type of project possesses its own narrative, and 360-reports can be set up in numerous ways to effectively convey a desired narrative. Throughout this webinar we will cover real-world examples of reporting structures for individual 360 assessments, team assessments, engagement surveys, culture assessments, and others. We will walk through the layouts, design, and best practices in reports that can enhance insights. Establishing well-structured reports that inform, inspire, and, ultimately, drive better decisions is an asset to any organization.

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 Timezone71 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),

Blue provides institutions a variety of tools that can be leveraged to help faculty participate, impress the end-users, and increase engagement overall. These principles include: managing first impressions, documentation and communication, branding and messaging, data-based decision making, integration with existing systems and processes, and more.
