Collaborative technologies are used to gather and process the opinions of students, faculty, and other stakeholders. ?E-Listening? is defined as the use of collaborative technologies to gather and process the opinions of students and other stakeholders for departmental improvement, and the attempt to extend the process and its benefits to the broader institution. Coordinated assessment activities using two different collaborative technologies, Group Systems and Facilitate.com were designed for the purposes of assessment and evaluation in college classroom. The advantages to students and faculty of the using the collaborative tools are described.
