Mobile Survey

Stellenbosch University is in the process of moving to a new Learning Management System with possible mobile capabilities. The company responsible for the product, Blackboard, has developed a survey to determine the demand for mobile integration. If you think it is important that Webstudies should be available from your cellular device, please participate in this survey. It will take about 5 minutes to complete.

Mobiele vraelys

Stellenbosch Universiteit is tans besig om oor te skakel na ‘n nuwe Leerbeheerstelsel met moontlike selfoonintegrasie. Die maatskappy wat die produk ontwerp het, Blackboard, het ‘n vraelys ontwikkel om die belangrikheid van mobiele integrasie te bepaal. As jy dink dat dit belangrik is dat Webstudies vanaf jou selfoon beskikbaar moet wees, voltooi asseblief die vraelys. Dit sal slegs ongeveer 5 minute duur.
