Barking and Dagenham regularly carry out staff monitoring. Previously these processes were paper-based and extremely time-consuming. With CollegeiP, lesson observations, learning walks and work scrutiny are all carried out in real-time on a tablet or laptop. The solution also includes a video lesson observation function. As soon as feedback is entered, data collates automatically into informative reports. These reports can be analysed and patterns for departments, faculties and the college as a whole are easily identifiable.
Bespoke functionality is where CollegeiP really comes into its own. Any monitoring forms can be integrated into the system to meet user requirements.
