The SRES has allowed me to create a personalised learning environment whereby my students receive feedback quickly and easily. By collecting student data (e.g. online module completion, discussion board posts etc.) and creating rules for this data with the SRES, I have been able to identify students at risk of failing. It has also assisted is identifying hard working students who are then encouraged to keep up the good work.
One of the major advantages of the system is that it enables the user to identify students who are at risk of failing well before any major assessment, which means that these students can then be offered additional learning support. With the SRES we have had a reduction in absent fails from approximately 10 a year to none. Students have also commented in their student evaluations that the personalised emails helped make them feel like their work was valued and helped them stay on track. The system is easy to use and has saved me hours of work. Student engagement has also increased since using the SRES with the number of students completing online activities increasing from approximately 50% to 98%.
