Ask Charlie renders student evaluation of teaching results over time to make the data more useful by allowing academics to see trends.
Ask Charlie suggests personalised recommendations for teaching techniques and strategies based on class size, discipline, assessment types, and other parameters.
Ask Charlie allows users to share their experience with specific teaching strategies with other users, and to contact experienced colleagues for advice.
Ask Charlie is the outcome from a one-year seed project, developed at the University of Sydney and funded through the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching.
What it offers
