Assess the satisfaction and priorities of students in distance learning and online programs

Online learning programs are rapidly gaining popularity. But students in these programs also have different needs, expectations, and priorities than traditional students.

The first survey of its kind designed specifically for online students, the PSOL can tell you how satisfied your students are and what issues are really important to them including the areas of:

  • Academic services
  • Enrollment services
  • Institutional perceptions
  • Instructional services

“The one-hour report review with Julie Bryant is an important part of the PSOL administration process. Julie provided me with an excellent overview of how to best review our PSOL data. The interactive reports are really well done and I now have a clear path on how to present our results and use them in a meaningful way at our institution.”
