TLT Group's Flashlight Online: Matrix Surveys

Flashlight Online is the Web 2.0 tool for evaluation offered by The TLT Group. The non-profit corporation's name stands for Teaching, Learning, and Technology and is recognized in the distance learning community as a source for free and low-cost training and resources.

The Flashlight Online products are available to institutional subscribers and access is open to multiple individuals within the institution. Flashlight has advanced from version 1.0 to 2.0 and now focuses on the concept of matrix surveys. Course evaluation is a major use of the tool.

The TLT web site is complex; a quick way to orient to the organization is through the free Friday afternoon webinars and the web page (called FridayLive!) that describes them. Scroll to the bottom of the page for a link to the archive of Friday sessions—it holds an impressive 4 years' worth. (Also a good opportunity to view TLT's webinar tool: Adobe Connect.)
