ATL is offering and managing a spring “proof of concept” pilot for an online course evaluation system with eXplorance Blue. The pilot is designed to test key course scenarios in the WSU environment, such as team-taught classes, multi-campus classes, large classes, use of mobile devices, instructor-added questions, and flexible reporting. “Behind-the-scenes” aspects of log-in and authentication, integration with WSU data, and security are also being tested.
After coordinating with many WSU units and colleges, ATL will orient participating instructors at noon sessions on April 14 and 15, including introducing the process to add their own questions to the evaluation. Students will do course evaluations in the pilot system from April 21 – May 9.
This semester, most WSU courses offering their course evaluations online will continue to use Skylight.
