New Online Training Opportunities for Questionmark Users

Kate Sopper

Posted by Chloe Mendonca

For those who want to get started using Questionmark; we are pleased to have launched a new range of online training courses to get participants acquainted with our software. We have completed our first round of these courses and are pleased at the response so far.

Our European Training Manager Kate Soper, who has extensive experience in e-assessment and has taught many Questionmark training courses over the years, leads all three of these online courses. She was able to share with me some of the ways course participants will be able to benefit from the syllabus as well as her advice and support:

How long have you been with Questionmark and what does your role entail?

I’ve been working with the company since 2008 as the European trainer. I travel to our customers’ offices in many different countries to train them in using Questionmark Perception, in addition to holding courses at our London Office.  I have just completed my Post Graduate Certificate in ‘Online and Distance Education: Practices and Debates’ with the Open University in the UK, which has added to my knowledge of online assessment methods.

What led Questionmark to start offering  online courses?

We started these courses in  response to requests from our customers to learn more about Questionmark in a limited time frame. We thought the online courses would be the perfect way to reach out to those unable to attend our 3 day in-house course. Many encounter difficulties attending our 3-day face-to-face training course because of the pre-selected dates as well as the travel and accommodation expenses involved, whereas Online Training now permits learning from the comfort of your own desk!

Who do you think would benefit from this kind of training ?

At the moment we have 3 courses available. Our Introduction to Authoring Manager and Introduction to Enterprise Manager courses, which last 2 to 3 hours, are for people with  basic computer skills who want to get started creating, delivering and analyzing surveys, quizzes, tests and exams.

Our third course, Customising the Participant Interface, lasts about 5 to 6 hours. It goes into more detail than the other two and is aimed at people who already have some experience using Questionmark technologies.

Whatever the level of each course, we provide supporting materials to all participants and I can  offer additional help after the course is completed if necessary.

What kind of reactions do you generally get from people who attend these courses?

People say they appreciate the flexibility of this approach and like learning about the full capabilities of our software. They also like the fact that I can help them a bit even after the course is over. This helps them to move forward with their projects and put into practice what they’ve learned .

People who want to get started using Questionmark but aren’t able to attend a regular three-day training course now have the option of taking online training.

In response to requests from our customers, we are pleased to offer a variety of short online courses that participants can take from the comfort of their own homes or offices. All of the courses are a mix of a live, interactive presentation where you’ll be encouraged to ask questions and a set of exercises and support materials (including short video tutorials) for you to work through at your own pace and schedule.

Three new online courses will be led by Questionmark’s European Training Manager, Kate Soper. Kate has been delivering Questionmark training courses since 2008 and had extensive experience in e-assessment before that. Course participants will benefit from Kate’s expert advice and instruction, as well as additional support after the courses have finished.
