Winners of students e-learning survey!

We are pleased to announce the winners of EHU’s third annual e-Learning survey!

First prize of £50 Amazon vouchers went to Helen Gadie, a 3rd year Psychology student.  She popped into the SOLSTICE office to pick up her prize and is pictured here with EHU’s e-Learning Strategy & Development Manager, Lindsey Martin.  The two runner up prizes of £25 Amazon vouchers went to Rachel Harrison, a 1st year Biology student, and Carl Wright, a 2nd year Geography student.  Congratulations to all three winners!

This year we had 750 responses which was close to last year’s total of 775.  The information gathered from the survey is fundamental to our planning for the coming academic year, particularly with the move to the new version of Blackboard – Learning Edge.  Thank you to everyone who completed the survey!

The results show that Blackboard continues to be used extremely frequently, with 95% of students logging on once a week, and around 75% of students logging on three times a week.  78.9% of students feel Blackboard is very important – a slight increase on last year’s figure of 75.9%.

Comparing responses from the 2008, 2009 and 2010 surveys shows that there has been a continuing increase in the number of students owning an internet enabled mobile device.  These students are wanting to make use of the university’s wifi access and are actively looking for more and consistent online provision.

There are many, many more interesting findings and emerging trends; a full report of the results will be available shortly….watch this space!
