Learners can now submit feedback when completing a course

Now that we have a library of courses available on Learn.WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/, it would be beneficial to gather feedback from learners who have completed a course. Starting in June, a survey has been added to all courses to collect such feedback. The feedback from students will inform the following aspects of courses going forward:

  1. Evaluation of course effectiveness: This feedback provides insights into the effectiveness of the course content. It helps instructors understand what course elements are working well and what areas may need improvement. 
  2. Course refinement and improvement: This feedback allows course creators to make necessary adjustments and improvements to the course materials, structure, and delivery. 
  3. Identification of technical issues: This feedback can help identify any technical problems they encountered during the course, such as broken links, video/audio issues, or difficulties accessing information. 
  4. Celebrating learning: This feedback can be a way to acknowledge and appreciate the positive aspects of a course. It also reinforces the elements that are working effectively and can serve as a foundation for further improvements in future course iterations.

Learners will be able to efficiently and quickly provide their unique feedback through a short, three-question survey at the end of each course.  Feedback will be reviewed monthly by Admin Faculty members, and they will create a GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ Issue for actionable feedback to be handled by either the course creator or a Faculty Content Creator if the original creator is not available. 

Insights gained will be incorporated into our ongoing efforts to deliver excellent learning experiences.
