The 5th Edge Hill University Students e-Learning Survey 2012 has now been opened for a few weeks for you all to take part in! In the space of just a few weeks, almost 500 of you have already responded and shared with us your experiences and expectations of technology to support your learning, which helps us understand what works and what hinders.

The survey should take around 10 minutes for you to complete, but it gives us a lot of valuable information about the services we provide and ideas of how to make things better for you.

We used the findings from last year’s survey to improve our services to students and we will use this year’s responses to continue to improve existing services and inform new developments. You can view the collection of past survey results at

It is important to get as many responses as possible to cover the range of experiences and enable us to benchmark against previous years, so your responses are very valuable to us!

This is why, we are giving away a colourful 1G USB wristband to every 20th person who completes the survey. So far we have given away 24 wristbands and have loads more ready to go. There are also three prizes to be won – a grand prize of £50 Amazon gift vouchers and two runner up prizes of £25 Amazon gift vouchers!

The survey may be accessed via the GO portal, from Learning Edge (Blackboard), from the Learning Services web pages or via the link below. We plan to close the survey on 25th January 2013.
