Professors: Student survey results

Please visit our new Lectures Online website.

As part of the Echo360 Lecture Capture trial, LAITS has worked with the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL, formerly DIIA) to conduct end of the semester surveys of the professors and students using the Echo360 system.  Through Spring 2011, 79 classes with a total enrollment of 13,099 have used the Echo360 Lecture Capture system.

Below are the results from the student surveys.  In total, 6,620 students have filled out the surveys.  Please note that students enrolled in multiple classes using Echo360 during the same semester count multiple times in the total enrollment number but only once in the survey filled out number. Also, due to rounding, some of the numbers do not add up to 100%.

You can find a more detailed breakdown of the Spring 2011, Fall 2011, or Spring 2012 student survey results here.
