Coursemetric Offers a Site for Education Evaluation
E-Curriculum and The League for Innovation have partnered to create Coursemetric, a Web-based learning evaluation engine for higher education institutions. The system enables online course evaluation, while maintaining users privacy and anonymity. Students, instructors and administrators can go online to rate their schools academic programs, course content, instruction and technology. The system then compiles the data into reports, which can be accessed instantaneously.
Coursemetric is interoperable with most course management and student information systems to allow for smooth exchange of relevant information. The program enables instructors and administrators to examine learning outcomes across courses, departments, instructors, institutions and time. An institutions local outcomes can also be charted against community-established standards. E-Curriculum, Inc., Berkeley, CA, (510) 548-9507, www.e-curriculum.com.
