Surveys in Desire2Learn (D2L) let instructors poll their users and students, whether anonymously or not, and then gather that data and turn it into insights. In this online training video, Alan Ackmann demonstrates how to create a survey, add questions, and make the survey available to students.
- [Instructor] When teaching, it's sometimes helpful…to feel the level of the room,…asking students for their thoughts…on either an issue or the class overall,…without tying those responses to grades or assessments.…Fortunately, D2L has built-in survey functionality.…Creating a survey starts here…in the Course Administration page.…Scroll down to the assessment area…and then select Survey.…To create your first survey,…select New Survey.…In the resulting window,…give your survey a name.…
We'll go with Student Satisfaction Survey.…Then we'll hit Save.…Once you've saved the survey name,…you can set up the particulars.…A lot of what's here is pretty similar…to standard D2L functionality…with things like quizzes or self-assessments.…On the Restrictions tab,…you can activate your survey once it is completed,…set up when the survey will be available,…and designate any release conditions,…allowable attempts,…or special access limitations.…
Rubrics can be associated with your survey…from here in the Assessment tab.…And you can associate learning objectives…
