The RWTHmoodle user survey has become an integral part of the IT Center and the Center for Teaching and Learning Services/Learning Platform Management, and this year the users of RWTHmoodle were once again able to evaluate the system and the services related to the teaching and learning platform, e.g. the training and support offerings.

A total of 36,167 people who actively used at least one learning space in the summer semester of 2023 were invited to take part in the survey in July. This means that not only students were addressed, but also all learning space managers, supervisors and other participants. 1,876 people took the opportunity to give their feedback and contribute to the long-term optimization of RWTHmoodle and its support services.
