NACCU Speedy Benchmark: Online Photo Submission


NACCU Speedy Benchmark: Online Photo Submission

This Speedy Benchmark update is brought to you by the NACCU Technology Research CommitteeThe quick, two-question surveys are designed to collect data that is important to our institutional or corporate members. The information learned helps guide future NACCU activities. 

The previous Speedy Benchmark pop-survey asked NACCU primary contacts if their campus uses online photo submission, and if so, what type of solution is used. Thanks to all who took the time to share with us. Here is what we learned:

  • Of the 32 responses to this question, 9 institutions do not use online photo submission.
  • Eight institutions use an in-house solution.
  • Only seven institutions that responded use a third-party solution, such as MyPhoto, CloudCard, etc.
  • Eight institutions use an app through a transaction system provider (Blackboard, CBORD, Atrium, etc.)

Why did we want to ask this question?

This information helps us build knowledge so that when we design content, we are able to meet our members needs and provide resources. As a result of the frequency of this topic on the NACCU listserv and inquiries following this Speedy Benchmark, NACCU has added fields related to Online Photo Submission to the next update of the online NACCU Campus Profile.

 The primary representative at member schools have received a link to respond to the next Speedy Benchmark survey asking who can submit a photo online, and who approves the photo. Please encourage them to participate
