Following the successful initial closed pilot which was run earlier this year, we are now taking forward the development of an open beta pilot of the student digital experience tracker tool as a key outcome of our digital student work to date.
About the tool
The tracker is a short survey to gather students’ expectations and experiences of technology, based on a concise set of questions which have been intensively trialled with higher and further education students for readability and ease of response.
It builds on resources such as the Jisc/NUS digital student experience benchmarking tool, and our guide to enhancing the digital student experience: a strategic approach. The questions cover issues that are important to learners and/or to staff with a focus on the learning experience.
The student digital experience tracker will allow universities, colleges and skills providers to:
- Gather evidence from learners about their digital experience, and track changes over time
- Make better informed decisions about the digital environment
- Target resources for improving digital provision
- Plan other research, data gathering and student engagement around digital issues
- Demonstrate quality enhancement and student engagement to external bodies and to students themselves
The tracker is delivered in BOS - an online survey service specially developed for the UK education sector. Institutions using the tracker will receive guidance on implementation in BOS, real-time access to their own data, are able to benchmark their data against their sector data, and access further guidance on how to understand and respond to the findings.
Outcomes from the closed pilot project
See how seven of the pilot institutions are taking forward their digital developments based on the findings from the tracker survey.
