My online course begins next week, and I am looking for ways to offer, promote, and access online course feedback. I want anonymous feedback from my students and the ability for my students to offer feedback to one another. The university will have some course evaluation at the end, but I like to regularly have opportunities to get more of an informal pulse on what is happening in the class more regularly.
How do others who teach online handle this?

What about a quick survey using a program like SurveyMonkey?
That is what I have been toying around with so far, Sarah. Thank you for the suggestion. I am exploring using Stephen Brookfield’s Critical Incident Questionnaire (CIQ) using Survey Monkey. Alas, I will have to create a new survey each week (at least with the free version).
Have you used it for this?
I have only used it once for an end of course evaluation. It works really nicely but if you do not pay for the ‘pro’ version, you are unable to download the results: http://sarah-stewart.blogspot.com/2008/08/hitting-snag-with-surveymonkey.html
There were a couple of good suggestions in the comments to this blog post.
