Student Digital Experience Tracker extended – sign-up till 30th of May

Extended opportunity for universities outside the UK to explore their students’ digital experience in 2018.

The Jisc student digital experience 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. Universities which have used it have found that it gives them actionable evidence for change and enables better-informed decisions on digital services.

As a result of international interest in the tracker, we have extended this year’s deadline for tracker sign-up to 30th of May 2018, with surveys closing by 30th of June. Use this year is free of charge.

You will have the chance to talk about this at the EUNIS Learning and Teaching Task Force pre-Congress EUNIS 2018 workshop on 5th of June in Paris. Jisc staff will be on hand at the workshop (free registration here) and day one of the Congress to answer questions and provide further support. Interested parties need to sign up by 30th May.

Last year more than 22,000 students and learners from 74 UK organisations, and more than 5,000 students from 10 international universities contributed to the student digital experience tracker, making it by far the largest and most detailed survey of its kind. The tracker offers:

A tried and tested student survey, made up of:

  • Closed questions that can be benchmarked
  • Open questions giving information for local analysis
  • The opportunity to add or customise further questions
A student engagement process, governed by Jisc guidance; to:
  • Engage students in planning & communicating the project
  • Encourage students to complete the survey
  • Engage students in other conversations about their digital experience
  • Work in partnership with students to respond to the findings

A Community of Practice around the tracker process and findings.

To take part at this stage you would need to:

  1. Sign up here
  2. Complete a confirmation form requesting some further information (by May 30th)
  3. Customise and launch your unique institutional survey
  4. Download, brand and distribute promotional materials to students, encouraging them to take part
  5. Close and download your data (by June 30th)

Our quick guide helps you to get up and running with just a couple of hours’ work. And there are templates you can use to present your key findings clearly. So it is realistic for you to go from zero to final report in a little over two months.
