The Engineering Village team continuously evaluates new features and content. We gather user input through several avenues including user surveys, customer interviews and support desk inquiries. Additionally, we have begun testing the use of new features within the Engineering Village platforms. At the recent ASEE conference, the Engineering Village team conducted face-to-face interviews with several customers to get input on features that are in an early concept phase. The feedback is being analyzed and will help to determine product strategy and priority projects for our development team. We are also using digital surveys via email and within the Engineering Village product as a way for customers to provide us quick feedback at the point a feature is being used. If you get prompted for a quick survey, please take a moment to give us your input.
