Hello Everyone, Nick Noel here, your Friendly Neighborhood Instructional Designer and Technologist. I’d like to briefly discuss Qualtrics. Which, if you’re new to campus, you may not have heard of. If you’re looking for a robust survey tool that can be used in your, or your student’s, research, then Qualitrics may be of use to you.
What is It?
Qualtrics is a data collection tool that allows you to create and analyze survey data. Qualtrics provides a platform to all varieties of research topics. There are numerous question types that allow for both Quantitative and Qualitative data collection. You can create multiple choice questions, Likert scales, short and long form written responses, and many others. The platform allows provides an easy method for sharing and collaborating on the data with others.
How is it helpful?
You can integrate this tool into your course in a variety of ways. You could use it as a method of collecting anonymous feedback from your students, to gauge how they are doing in the class and if there are any areas they are struggling with. Your students could also use it as a method for collecting data that they need for their projects. This can be incorporated into nearly any field where it is important to gather information from other people. You could also use it as a method for students to collect feedback from their peers about projects or presentations they are creating.
