Your digital learning experience

Creating a positive learning experience at Leeds is our main priority, but we understand that the last few months have created some challenges for students and staff.

As we all begin to settle into this new style of teaching and learning, we want to ensure that you’re being properly supported and are getting the engaging teaching experience you’d expect from the University of Leeds.

So, we’re sending a short survey to all students to find out how you’re finding digital learning – what’s working well and where we can make improvements – so we can make any necessary changes and plan for the future.

The Jisc Digital Student Survey is a national survey used by universities to find out how well students think digital technology supports their education. This year, we’ve updated the survey to reflect the current situation and will be using your responses to make immediate changes and plan for the longer term.

It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and every student who takes part using their University of Leeds email address will be entered into a draw to win an iPad Pro. It opens on Monday, November 2 and closes at midnight on Sunday, November 15.

Take the survey now.

This year, the survey results will:

  • ask you about your digital experience at the university
  • help us to make better informed decisions about the digital environment we provide to support your learning
  • target digital provision that needs to be improved
  • conduct research around student engagement with digital technology for learning
  • demonstrate how we are supporting your experience through the use of digital technologies
  • allow us to resolve immediate issues and plan for the future

Since we last ran the survey in November 2017, we’ve made a number of improvements as a result of your feedback. This includes:

  1. Making changes to Print Services to improve the student experience
  2. Lecture capture and use of video-based learning resources is more widespread
  3. More plug sockets are being introduced across the campus estate
  4. Digital skills training is more widespread and embedded in programmes, and available via Skills@Llibrary
  5. The university IT induction has been enhanced in relation to privacy and data protection
  6. Campus WiFi is constantly being improved
