On line review system for courses and instructors

Posted on May 30th, 2008 by Fran Myers, OLLI National Resource Center

Cathy House from University of Utah asks:

We are considering implementing an on line review system for our courses
and instructors. Students would be able to rate courses/instructors on
a handful of categories and also be able to leave comments like
strengths and drawbacks. The comments would be viewable by all students
to aid them in their decisions about which courses/instructors to take.

* Is your OLLI doing anything like this?
* What system do you use?
* What has been your experience with it?
* How have your members responded - what percentage use it, how is
it helpful to them?
