At the core of the tracking system is a tracking survey addressed to MOOC learners that have completed a specific course. The survey focuses on the impact that the attendance of MOOC and the certification have had on the learner’s personal and professional competences, further education, career path, professional status, earnings etc.
The tracking System has been designed to make it as easy as possible for MOOC providers to incorporate the survey in their MOOCs. To use the survey you must follow the steps described below:
- Select one platform for the online survey.
- Follow the instructions below to implement the online form
- Update the survey to meet your organisation’s needs
- Decide on how to distribute the survey
- Invite students or graduates to participate in the survey
- Gather results from the Survey once the deadline is over.
- Analyse results and get conclusions.
- Implement which changes you must carry out in your MOOC/ e-learning course.
