UNH: Student Experiences of Learning Software (Blue) - Accessing from myCourses for Students

Task:  This article highlights how a student can access their Student Experiences of Learning using the survey link within myCourses.

Students will receive an automated email notification on the start date of the survey period and reminders throughout. There are multiple ways to access surveys. Students will be able to access the Student Experiences of Learning from Blue link through email, course menu  within myCourses and/or a mobile device.



NOTE:  Low Enrollment courses, (less than 6 students) - students in the course will not receive an invite to survey the course.  If they attempt to access Blue Evaluation from the course, they will receive a message that "No SEL survey tasks due at this time."  The instructor may elect to provide a paper form, qualtrics survey or another form if they choose to have the low enrollment course surveyed.

NOTE: If multiple instructors are associated with a course, you will see multiple instructor names with the same question blocks below them. Please answer the questions below the instructor who taught your section and disregard the other instructors.
