For both students and teachers alike, these two words can often be synonymous with stress and uncertainty, especially when it comes to the university decision making and application process.
If you’re a student, you may feel the pressure of teachers and parents reminding you that poor time management could cost you a treasured university place. If you’re a university or careers adviser/counsellor, or a teacher, then time management means dealing with the pressure of co-ordinating multiple subject reports and references, whilst, in some cases, continuing to deliver an already full time school curriculum.
That’s why almost every product update on our roadmap for the year thus far has been guided by the principle that there’s always more we can be doing to make time management that little bit easier, for students and advisors alike.
If you read our last product update, you’ll know that one of BridgeU’s priorities for the first half of 2018 has been to further improve the report and reference writing tools on the platform, making the guidance process that much more streamlined for teaching staff.
The product updates we’re rolling out are in response to a number of pieces of customer feedback we’ve received with regards to the perceived complexity of some aspects of the platform. These included:
Subject reports – some of your feedback has told us that the process of assigning teachers subject reports can be repetitive and time-consuming.
Tracking progress – some of you have indicated that the process of tracking the progress of teacher subject reports has proven too complex in the current version of the platform, especially for university advisors with lots of staff members and teachers to oversee.
