Feedback from the User Conference
Many thanks to all those who attended the eTrackr User Conference at South and City College of Birmingham on 16th April. The majority of the feedback forms were extremely positive. For example, 87% strongly agreed and 9% agreed that the conference provided useful information about recent and forthcoming developments of eTracker, and 100% either strongly agreed or agreed that the conference provided effective opportunities to share good practice.
All of the developments discussed were deemed to be very useful to colleges, with an average point score above 4 out of 5 for all new features (where a score of 5 denoted very useful).
We were also grateful for those delegates who suggested some improvements for future events, which we will do our best to implement for next time.

eTrackr Dashboard and other new features
We are preparing for the release of eTrackr version 126.96.36.199, which will contain a new eTrackr Dashboard, further integration with bksb, target setting facilities and a number of new reports. This version has already undergone extensive testing on our demo site and has now been released to two customers for further testing with live data.
The new version will also herald the release of the eTrackr Dashboard – which will provide a live data feed of key statistics to a front page. The eTrackr Dashboard will be released as an additional module to eTrackr – and will also be available for use as a standalone product.
A release date for Version 188.8.131.52 will be announced soon. Meanwhile, please download this document to see some screenshots and further information about the new features.
Should you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the team here at VLE Support.
