Why, when it’s well documented that students who attend their lectures and classes do better, is missing classes once again hitting the headlines?  

With Covid restrictions behind us and accessible tech tools and cutting edge teaching techniques at the forefront of learning, what are the barriers to making the most of the live learning experience? 

What is it that will have a student debating whether to attend a class or not (whether it be rain, a hangover or even paid work) and what’s missing from a classes that students aren't motivated to attend?

That’s what we’ve set out to find out… by asking the students themselves. 

At Vevox we believe that every class, lecture, meeting, presentation or training session should be an unmissable learning experience. We might all have personal experiences and assumptions regarding the factors that would make a class ‘unmissable’, but we want want to know what students are actually saying, feeling and experiencing in 2024.  

Vevox is reaching out to current higher education students across the US, UK and further afield to ask exactly that. In true Vevox style all responses will be anonymous in order to achieve the most honest, unlimited feedback - ensuring every voice is heard.

For that extra motivation to spend 2 minutes completing the survey, there’salso two $250/£250 amazon vouchers up for grabs!

Entering an email adress is optional and email addresses will not be used for any other purpose than the prize draw and not stored after the draw has taken place. Survey results will be made available on Vevox.com in due course and will reference general trends and comments made by respondants with no reference to their specific University, College or course as this information is not asked for as part of the survey.
