eXplorance Blue Online Course Evaluation Pilot

The University has had reductions in funding in recent years. This has caused ITSS to reevaluate the current manual process of conducting online course evaluations. ITSS, in conjunction with the Office of Measurement Services (OMS) in the Twin Cities, is piloting a new online course evaluation system. The OMS product, eXplorance Blue, offers the same options for selecting which courses instructors would like evaluated, and delivers the results in the same manner as our current process (confidentially, directly to the instructor), but at a great reduction in staff time and expense. The pilot is open to all instructors of Fully Online courses. It will utilize the same questions as the current online course evaluation. For further information, please contact us at umdonlineevals@d.umn.edu.

Summer courses participating in the pilot will be evaluated on the following schedule:
