Some licenceholders carry out data collection through e-reporting. This involves data collection using specialised software or an LMS plug-in from which data is extracted by the licenceholder and then electronically supplied to us on a regular basis several times every year. Data supplied to CLNZ must meet agreed criteria. There is no separate periodic data collection process under the ereporting approach.
We encourage all licenceholders to consider this option. Under ereporting it is important that the licenceholder can centralise all material copied under the licence within the specialised software or plug-in, so that it is included in reports sent to us. This has the useful benefit of allowing greater oversight of course pack materials. Centralised reading lists are generally preferred by students too.
