Let’s see where we are so we can build our future together

Welcome to the Irish National Digital Experience Survey (INDEx Survey) administered by the National College of Ireland. This survey is part of a national survey of students and staff who teach that is being carried out in conjunction with the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Please tell us about your experiences of digital learning and what makes a difference to you. We want to understand your needs and experiences so we can work together towards enhancing your learning, teaching and digital experiences. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete (approx. 28 short questions). The survey is not designed to collect personal information; please do not enter personal details in any fields.

All the questions are optional, but it would be very helpful if you could answer as many as you can. Your answers are only submitted when you click FINISH on the last page. Thank you.
