Instructor Course Feedback System Access

Instructors can access the course feedback system in the following ways:

  • Go to and log in with your Syracuse University credentials.
  • In Blackboard, click “Tools” in the main menu and then select the “Course Feedback” tile.

Training Sessions

Training sessions for instructors are available by request. This includes a one-hour session providing a full overview of the course feedback system, as well as sessions focused on special topics, such as selecting and adding instructor-level questions.

Resources for Instructors

    • The following schools/colleges have enabled the custom question option for instructors:
          • School of Architecture
          • College of Arts and Sciences
          • School of Education
          • College of Engineering and Computer Science
          • Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics
          • College of Law
          • Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs
          • S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications
          • College of Visual and Performing Arts
  • QR Code (image)
    • Talking to students about the course feedback process and providing time during a class session for them to respond are very effective ways to increase their engagement. To assist with increasing response rates, display a QR code to students during class and/or embed it as an announcement within Blackboard. This QR code will direct students right to their course feedback in the system.

Student Notifications and Access

When it is time to provide course feedback, students receive notifications via email and in Blackboard. For students, completing feedback forms is easy to do. There are multiple access points:

  • Log in to with your Syracuse University credentials.
  • Click on the link in an invitation or reminder emails to login and view available feedback forms from a phone or computer.
  • In Blackboard, click “Tools” in the main menu and then select the “Course Feedback” tile.

If a student is having problems accessing forms, it may be a browser issue. The course feedback system requires the acceptance of a session cookie by the browser software. If a student is unable to view their forms, they should check to see that cookies are enabled in the browser they are using. If they continue to experience problems, they can contact the IE course feedback team.
