Abstract

Students' real-time feedback is acknowledged as an important source of information for teachers/lecturers to improve their teaching and address issues students may have, such as going deeper in some of the materials covered or providing more examples to understand an abstract concept. Previousapplications collecting real-time feedback from students through clickers and mobiles typically collect limited information with predefined questions, while more recent applications using social media collect such a large volume of information that a lecturer cannot manually process it in real time. We developed the SA-E system for analysing students' real-time feedback provided via social media, and, in this paper, we present the evaluation of this system in real settings with lecturers and students. The results show that lecturers are highly satisfied with the proposed system. In contrast, although the participation of students in providing feedback was high, the students' opinions of the system were between neutral and dislike.
