Aalto University is conducting a survey to gather feedback on lifewide learning platform needs. The aim is to research user needs for personalized and engaging learning experiences, and to seek feedback from a diverse range of participants.

Lifewide learning is an essential aspect of personal growth and development, and it has become increasingly crucial in our ever-changing world. Lifewide learning includes formal education, non-formal education, and informal learning opportunities that occur throughout our lives.

We want to understand how individuals engage in lifewide learning and the barriers and facilitators that they encounter. Your participation in this questionnaire will help us gain insight into the different ways that people engage in learning throughout their lives and how we can promote and support lifewide learning.

Researching learner needs is a critical step in developing effective learning platforms. By listening to the needs and preferences of learners, we can better understand how to build engaging learning experiences that help learners achieve their goals. Aalto University's survey is an excellent opportunity for learners of all backgrounds and skill levels to have their say and shape the development of a lifewide learning platform that meets their needs.

'We believe that platforms have the potential to transform the way people learn and acquire new skills,' says Laura Sivula, Business Area Director for Lifewide learning. 'We believe that the insights and feedback provided by participants will be invaluable in shaping the development of lifewide learning. To ensure that learning platforms meet the needs of learners, we need to hear directly from our wide networks learners.'

To gather feedback on learning needs, Aalto University has created a comprehensive questionnaire that covers a range of topics related to learning, including goals, preferences, current methods, and desired features. Participants will be asked to share their thoughts and opinions on these topics in order to support lifewide learning platform development.

'We're looking for participants of all backgrounds and skill levels,' says Ida Hyvärinen, Program Manager at Aalto University Executive Education Ltd. 'Whether you're a student, a professional, or simply someone who enjoys learning new things, we would love to hear from you.'

All participants' responses will be anonymous and confidential. The data collected will be used solely for research purposes and will not be shared with any third parties.

To participate in the survey, interested individuals can access the questionnaire online. The questionnaire is easy to complete, taking 10-15 minutes of the participants' time.
