Today we launched the Jisc student digital experience tracker. The tracker is a national survey to find out about how students use digital technologies and how it affects their experience of learning.
Last year 74 UK institutions participated (there were 22,593 student responses) and the results allowed Jisc to benchmark areas and share themes and trends across the whole Higher Education sector. You can access the 2017 report online.
The tracker is aimed at all our students, undergrad and postgrad. It takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be available during April 2018.
We really want to get as many students to participate in the survey as possible. Although we are interested in the benchmarking aspect of the survey the main draw is getting a better understanding of how students use the RAU digital environment and services and how we could improve these services. This information will feed in to the RAU Digital strategy and priorities and spending for the IT services team. The aim is that we can then target resources towards the issues that matter, improve the student experience and ultimately become a better institution.
