NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Watermark, a pioneer in educational intelligence, announced a new partnership 
this week with eWorks, one of Australia's leading e-learning delivery and 
consultancy specialists, to better support Australian higher education 
institutions in simplifying student feedback processes and getting valuable 
data into the hands of stakeholders. The companies will work together to make 
EvaluationKIT by Watermark more accessible to members of the eWorks Learning 
Management user community in order to advance the critical work of capturing 
student feedback and using that data to improve the teaching and learning

Disconnected data and technology systems make it challenging to use data 
effectively. With an enterprise unit evaluation and survey solution that 
integrates seamlessly with e-learning content and management systems, 
institutions can centralise and more easily capture key student feedback data 
in order to gain insights that inform planning, improve curriculum, help manage 
faculty, and drive quality. 

"Partnering with Watermark will help us both better support institutions in 
Australia. In working together, we look to automate student feedback data 
collection and analysis, improving the quality and integrity of the data along 
with timely access for faculty teaching and departments. Part of our vision at 
eWorks includes partnering with other leading edtech companies to support 
better integrations and more flexibility so that our customer community can 
continuously evolve their technology environments and elevate learning. We will 
work together to support TAFEs, RTOs, and universities in advancing their 
quality assurance efforts, said Jacqueline Bates, Director, eWorks. 

Used by more than 300,000 administrators and faculty to administer over 16 
million unit evaluations globally, EvaluationKIT by Watermark has streamlined 
institutions' processes for obtaining key student feedback data for more than a 
decade. It is the only all-in-one unit evaluation and institutional survey 
solution designed exclusively for higher education that also integrates with 
Watermark's faculty activity reporting solution. With in-region hosting on the 
AWS Cloud to support data residency needs, GDPR compliance with European Union 
and Swiss frameworks, and TrustArc certification, EvaluationKIT by Watermark 
already serves many members of the international community. The solution is a 
three-time SIIA CODiE award winner ( 
) and most recently recognized as the Best Data Solution for Education -- in 
part because it leverages a turnkey integration with Learning Management 
Systems to support increased response rates and quickly surfaces actionable 
insights that drive improvements.

"We're excited to partner with eWorks and to have the opportunity to further 
support universities and Technical and Further Education institutions in 
Australia. This past year, we fully localised our application and already work 
closely with many international institutions. With our strong international 
partnerships, we'll be able to further increase efficiencies for institutions, 
as we help them collect student feedback on instruction. This is key to the 
evaluation and improvement of teaching and learning, and when combined with 
other institutional data, provides a more holistic picture of effectiveness," 
said Matt Bartel, Chief Product Officer for Watermark.

This partnership underscores Watermark's broader vision to connect previously 
siloed data and empower institutions with the insights needed to make 
meaningful improvements across all levels of the institution. As a global 
provider of educational intelligence solutions, Watermark is a member of the 
AWS Partner Network with Education Competency status and currently supports 
over 1,700 colleges and universities in developing an intentional approach to 
learning based on data they can trust.
