Online course evaluation software gets tailored for administrators

New user interface, dashboard aims to improve access and ease-of-use for administration 

online-course-evaluationEvaluationKIT, a provider of enterprise online course evaluation and survey software for higher education institutions, is bringing real-time analytics and alerts to the student feedback process, says the company, with the goal of increasing accessibility for administrators.

Through newly released dashboard, navigation and design functionality, administrators and instructors can more readily access relevant information anywhere, anytime, noted the company.

“By streamlining the overall usability of our system, we’ve enhanced the way institutions collect and access data so they can make timely continuous improvement decisions based on student feedback,” said Kevin Hoffman, president and CEO of EvaluationKIT. “Through our improved user interface, we’ve further modernized and simplified the online course evaluation experience by making information more accessible, meeting the on-the-go needs of users, and making the entire process even easier to manage.”

According to the company, a new customizable and more engaging dashboard allows for faster access to “key information,” analytics and alerts. For example, upon login administrators can instantly view operational metrics and results specific to the areas they oversee. Survey responses can be monitored and summarized so that they can keep tabs on overall response rates, daily submissions and real-time activity.

Within the system, administrators and instructors can discuss student feedback, and alerts will display on the dashboard when new postings are added. Additionally, while taking a survey students now have the option to send alerts directly to the administration or an instructor if they would like to be contacted separately about their experience.

EvaluationKIT’s new “responsive design” aims to bring convenience to all users, noted the company, allowing for access from any device type. Students can complete their course evaluations from desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones using either their web browser or free mobile apps from EvaluationKIT. Additionally, administrators are also able to check on the status of projects and access survey results from any device.

“The EvaluationKIT system has always been easy to use, and these latest enhancements will make the operational processes even more streamlined for our administrators and faculty,” said Eric Friedman, director of Boston University’s Office of Distance Education. “Moreover, we feel it’s important for the systems we use to keep evolving as technology evolves and for the user experience to become more intuitive and graphical in its presentation. EvaluationKIT does a great job at continuing to release valuable enhancements every year. We have been very impressed with the work they put into this most recent release.”
