Evaluation of Campus Pipeline, Spring 2001.
Santa Barbara City Coll., CA.
This document is a report on the Santa Barbara City College (California) Campus Pipeline, an online portal system that provides a single Web entry point to relevant academic and institutional information for students and faculty. Introduced in spring 2001, the pipeline initially involved 22 courses, 30 sections, and 14 instructors who agreed to participate in the pilot evaluation of the portal. Five of these courses were online. A total of 1,154 students also participated in the pilot test. The college administered a survey to explore students' and faculty's satisfaction with the system. Information on the most and least useful features of the portal were collected. Eight (57%) faculty and 279 (24%) students responded to the survey. Most students and faculty expressed that the overall system was very useful and easy to access. Some students expressed concerns about the lack of speed. Respondents rated the e-mail and school services features as the most useful. The links to student organizations and Web life were noted as being the least useful. The report contains two tables that detail student and faculty responses. Appendices contain a list of courses involved in the pilot test, along with information on instructors, enrollments, survey instruments, and comments. (MKF)
