Simplify feedback collection
The Blue student experience management platform allows your institution to connect all stepwise feedback in one centralized location.
Automation, data analysis, and customized reporting mean you have everything you need to optimize the student experience.
Purpose-built as a best-in-class stepwise survey platform, Blue supports:
Teaching and learning surveys
Student exit surveys
The power of 1
Is one system enough?
You might be thinking, "Will I be able to handle everything with just one tool?" The simple answer is yes. Blue is a platform that can handle anything you throw at it. It provides scalability and can automate the most complex data collection processes through its powerful HE Data Model, enabling you to leverage full institutional hierarchy and enrollment relationships.
Far from the loneliest number, everything is harnessed in one place. It means having one budget, one stream of data, and it ensures students have the same experience across faculties and departments.
Eliminate uncertainties with Blue’s out-of-the-box integration that connects with any SIS, LMS, Portal, and other IT systems. Combine this with powerful automation, and you are good to go.
How does Blue stand apart?
This isn’t your one size fits all approach. Blue is a platform built to support all your feedback initiatives.
Can you use any survey software for this? Of course, but why not use the one platform that was built to support your most important feedback processes
like course evaluations and 360 degree feedback reviews from the ground up?
Need a platform built for your course evaluations? That’s Blue.
Blue was developed with the ability to manage any aspect of the course evaluation process. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any old survey software for course evaluations that supports:
Consumption of enrollment data
Analysis of qualitative feedback on teaching and learning
Seamless integration with the most popular LMS systems
How about for 360 feedback reviews?
We’re just getting warmed up. You might need to double-check if your survey tool for 360 degree feedback reviews supports an unlimited number of custom rater groups and automatically assigns raters based on hierarchy. Popular 360 degree feedback reporting features include:
Perception gap analysis
Breakdown by rater group
Comparative reporting – periods, etc.
Aggregate reporting – norms, etc.
Blue Student Experience Management
Perform time trend analysis to compare improvement results evolution or aggregate your results by any criteria that matter (departmental, organizational, etc.).
Tap into your qualitative feedback data and obtain a more complete picture of student feedback.
Provide forms and reports in a variety of languages as well as cultural adaptations to match audience requirements.
Support evaluations with hundreds of questions easily in one cascaded project.
Build evaluations around current or event-based data, including open evaluations, open surveys, fixed surveys, and surveys with event triggers.
Abide by the strictest interpretations of GDPR while still taking advantage of Blue’s full integration and analytics capabilities.
Send centralized and personalized invitations, reminders, emails, and SMS notifications to participants anytime, anywhere.
Leverage existing source data and hierarchy, including SIS, LMS, portals, and other security and information systems.
Meet the latest accessibility standards for WCAG 2.1 (AA) and Section 508, and provide a seamless experience to all.
Blue APIs allow data to be pushed and pulled to the most popular systems.
What users are saying
The University of San Francisco selected Blue because it met, and in most cases exceeded, the critical requirements we were looking for in an online course evaluation system. [...]We were equally impressed with the delivered reports and analytics, which surpassed those of the other vendors we looked at. We are very satisfied in our choice of Explorance and Blue.

Blue's ability to take my complicated, 42-department, 28-questionnaire, multi-report evaluation (…) left me feeling confident that I can continue to improve my process and the information I will be able to share with my instructors, departments, and deans.
