Faster feedback in Huddersfield

Since 2017, the Enterprise Team at the Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Centre, University of Huddersfield, has been using LoopMe as an IT-tool to lead and follow their students’ learning processes in real-time. The team has found LoopMe to be really useful. Catherine Brentnall, Business Start-up Advisor, says:

– It’s facilitated some of our admin processes. There used to be a monthly report on which students were recorded as being late, which the students didn’t receive timely feedback on, and which we couldn’t identify if they were struggling or not. This time, the process was much quicker (only one late return), we gave feedback within a few days, and we could tailor feedback, ask for meetings, take action, and respond to student issues much more quickly.

Catherine also discovered that LoopMe enables the Business Advisors to get feedback from students who otherwise might be pretty quiet:
– I’ve been surprised at the lengthy responses from some (shy) students; those who have not said much in group scenarios and even in 1-2-1 meetings have seemed reserved or held back, and then they have gone online and spilled their guts — fascinating, so it’s a mechanism that is facilitating interaction that I think would otherwise not exist.

The categories (tags) that are used in LoopMe by the Enterprise Team at Huddersfield are indeed very interesting ones; for example, they want the students to tag every time they feel that they are becoming more creative, more resilient, more self-motivated, or when they feel out of their comfort zone. This will be exciting for the entire Enterprise team to follow up on throughout the year!

The team found it easy to get started with using LoopMe. Catherine says:

-I’m not into tech, don’t have a lot of apps on my phone, generally use email/text and websites, and I have got to grips with it. I use LoopMe on a PC (I can’t see well enough on the app). If I can, anyone can, I think!
