As educational policies change year after year, educational institutions find it really useful to know students’ feedback about how their professors are doing. And one way to find that out is to learn how students are reacting to instructors or professors’ teaching strategy.
We at BookGator are continually devising website features and tools that helps both students and professors a way to take steps forward to improving teaching and learning. Just recently we have started working an academic cloud platform called CourseEasy where students in the academic institutions are able to manage their school work, seek the help of professors in a whole new way and connect with other students inasmuch as their courses are concerned.
To start with, if you sign up with BookGator you’ll be presented with a number of tabs that gives you the chance to manage your school-related work like shopping for textbooks, sell, trade, or buy them online and see what students are saying about your particular textbook of choice. You’ll also get to compare how textbooks are priced across all online bookstores.
You can also trade and swap your old textbooks and benefit from getting textbooks without spending any single cent from your pocket. You may also expand your circle of friends to improve your chances of getting the textbooks that you’ll be needing in the coming semester. Calendar is also available to bookmark important milestones in your academic career as well as take note of important information related to your activities in BookGator as well as the textbooks you’ve traded online with other students.
Professor reviews are also useful in that they are a key to help teachers find out how they are doing as well as figure out a way for them to improve their teaching style. The certain level of transparency in BookGator and CourseEasy is useful for the academe as it ensures that teachers adhere to high standards of teaching.
The use of novel technological resources intimidates many especially in the academic institutions. It is an exciting opportunity for schools to be able to see this on a different perspective and open up their doors to advance their cause in producing tomorrow’s leaders.
