Tracking emotions is an excellent way to support education. A good example is University of Jyväskylä’s Executive MBA-training program. They are using Vibemetrics to monitor emotions and progress during the whole program, in real time.
”I especially like that we can direct content and react to participant feedback quickly, even during the day. This is something that isn’t possible by collecting feedback afterwards”
– Menestyksen Strategiat -program leader, Sirpa Koponen, University of Jyväskylä
University of Jyväskylä’s Executive MBA (Executive Master of Business Administration) is an internationally accredited, high-class traning program aimed at experienced executives and experts, in which we move towards an era of agility in self-improvement. Clipwise and Vibemetrics provide a technological solution, which better enables professional development and measurement of effectiveness for the participants of the EMBA-program, and thus improves their market value.The self-knowledge of the participants grows and during the program we can track their professional development and react to critical events, such as choosing a subject and scoping the development projects done as part of the program.
Feedback is traditionally collected at the end of a program, where participants are asked whether they were satisfied with the content. Now we can easily track emotions throughout the program. With Vibemetrics, giving feedback is quick, easy and continuous. Everyone can also provide textual comments that are visible to all participants.
Most important qualities of Vibemetrics in EMBA-training:
- Gives instant information of students’ views on the wanted subject.
- Shows if the students are happy in real time.
- Allows you to react immediately, if for instance the mood is worsening.
- Brings openness by allowing students to see what others are feeling and thinking.
