EPISILEN Webinar Forum:
Questions and Answers
would a faculty member provide feedback to matric entries?
faculty member can easily provide feedback to matric enteries through the
Assessment process, which we will demonstrate in detail as part of our follow
up webinar. For information on attending the webinar please send your contact
information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can students generate their own and
invite people to review their own work using rubrics they developed?
So in the learning matrix students
are just uploading files and a file for reflection? Can multiple people
complete a rubric, I see comments for feedback? Could you explain a little more
about the matrix and then what is reported from it? Summary of rubric scores
across a program for example?
The Epsilen Learning Matrix is a comprehensive management tool for both
formative and summative learning assessment. A student may use the
Learning Matrix to collect, select, reflect upon, and present their learning
accomplishments in a very easy-to-use web-based x,y grid format. An
academic administrator may use the Learning Matrix to create a degree-based or
campus-wide learning matrix template that students may use to create their
matrix. An academic assessor may use the Learning Matrix to securely
review and assess student learning outcomes and skill proficiencies both
formative and summative. Beyond the individual learner level, the
academic assessor may use the Learning Matrix to gather metrics on
institutional performance that will supply the data to be reviewed in Epsilen’s
Assessment Portal (separate solution). In order to full address your
questions it would be best if we could do a separate walk-thru of our Learning
Matrix and Assessment Portal tools for you so that you can determine which tool
best fits the needs of your program/school.
Can you say more about the
flexibility of the rubrics, integration capabilities, scale flexibility, etc?
Rubrics are a way to define learning outcomes at various levels of mastery for
the courses they teach. The Epsilen Learning Matrix is a way to track a
student’s progress against those learning outcomes, and to showcase examples of
work that demonstrates mastery. Integration: Epsilen maintains
strong relationships with the key industry technology. We have a reseller
agreement with SunGard Higher Education, and are an integration partner with
their Banner suite of products. We are a Blackboard Learn development partner,
and a Blackboard Collaborate integration partner. Epsilen also offers a Single
Sign On (SSO) API to be able to integrate with other vendors. Scale
Flexibility: The Epsilen Engagement Management Solution has a robust,
scalable architecture and can support millions of users in its cost-effective
SaaS hosting model. We will be scheduling a follow up webinar to look
specifically at Matrixes and Rubrics. If you would like to attend please
send your contact info to email@example.com.
How do you handle required portfolio
elements? e.g. The program requires students to complete annual reflections
following a specific format.
Reflections are part of the Learning Matrix, you can also require students to
use various parts of their ePortfolio in order to complete their Matrix as well.
Can we see a sample report - how
detailed are the reports?
[EPSILEN]: Analytics are integrated
throughout the Epsilen system. There are several different types of reports and
we would be happy to do a more detailed walk-thru for you. Please contact us at
