Get started with check-ins in the most simple way, fully supported by a team of student engagement specialists.
What is StudentPulse?
Define your student target group
Start out with a few programmes, campuses or a range of faculties where there is a need of engaging students - or roll out at a broader scale.
Choose your check-in focus
Determine whether you are aiming to strengthen students’ personal, social or academic wellbeing, , and select from a range of verified check-in questions.
Select check-in timing and frequency
Decide whether it is a “one-off” or whether you want to engage your students continuously, and let check-ins automatically adapt to students’ context.
Set it live!
Reach most targeted students possible by building check-ins into your existing student communication. Incentivising, integrating, live collecting or using simple QR’s or URL’s.
See the check-in impact
Providing you with real-time data, you get an overview of students’ wellbeing, what support initiatives are the most impactful, and what students need help.
Frequently asked questions
Everything you need to know about getting started with Studentpulse. Can't find the answer you're looking for? Please chat to our friendly team.
Would you recommend check-ins as a substitute for our existing student engagement activities?
No, you should see StudentPulse as a way to leverage all of the things that you are already doing and tracking the effect of them.
Is it possible to use StudentPulse check-ins without setting up student connectors or identifiers?
Yes. Several institutions use StudentPulse to explain student well-being only, emphasising efficient analysis of data instead to make sure actions are taken by the institution.
What focus areas does the StudentPulse Framework include?
The framework has been developed together with educational institutions and students in Europe and covers a 360° experience. From peer relationship and study-life balance to planning, learning contents and feedback & assessment.
How are check-ins different from student surveys?
They are shorter, more contextual for students and inst. stakeholders, and most importantly driven by immediate student outcomes.
How long does it take to get started with StudentPulse?
If you are using predefined StudentPulse drivers and questions, you can get started within a day. If you want your own framework of student experience drivers and questions the exact time frame can be discussed with one of our student engagement specialists.
What personal information is collected from StudentPulse?
All StudentPulse data is anonymous, hence we do not collect any personal identifiable data. In case you are using StudentPulse for identification, student data is collected for contact purposes only, pushing the data directly to your student management system or an alternative platform already used by your institution.
