Here at Diverse we’re constantly looking for ways to develop and improve our tool. One of the ways we do this is through user participation and feedback. Earlier this month we set up a meeting with the Business and Law faculty to get an insight into their views on the tool and to see if they’d be interested in using it within their department. The results and feedback were positive and I just wanted to share a few of the comments made during this meeting.
As a whole the faculty was impressed, they liked the idea of having a learning aid to use within their lectures and believed DIVERSE would make a welcomed addition. In particular they liked:
- How the tool enabled users to get involved with modules and add their own material
- The possibility of using the tool to structure the content within their lectures
- The ability to have different clouds for different topics and lectures
- How the tool could be incorporated into current University systems such as Blackboard
We’re looking to be working closely with Business and Law in the coming months and will be using them as one of our feedback agents; we’ll provide them with DIVERSE to use in their classrooms and through this we’ll be able to gather invaluable feedback and analytics regarding the use of the tool. We’ve very much excited about the prospect of DIVERSE and hope you are too; we’ll keep you updated with feedback we receive and any changes we’ll be making in the foreseeable future!
