Ready, Set, Score! A Holistic Evaluation of Edtech

Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Given that nearly 200 of its online courses are powered by digital courseware, SNHU wanted to more efficiently and objectively evaluate educational technology. SNHU combined data from an interactive Courseware in Context (CWiC) evaluation tool on the LearnPlatform with custom vendor product and relationship scoring in order to benchmark its courseware products currently in use. In doing so, a custom vendor scorecard was created that allowed for more informed decision-making, targeted at the criteria SNHU deemed most important.

Outcomes: Understand a new way to objectively evaluate courseware products and their associated vendor relationships * Learn about the CWiC framework and LearnPlatform as evaluation tools * Identify the benefits of benchmarking vendor products
