Ecafe Basics

  • What is eCAFE?

    • eCAFE is the official application for Course And Faculty Evaluations at the University of Hawaii. It is a UH system wide tool for faculty across all campuses to gather feedback from the students at the end of a course.

  • Who can use eCAFE?

    • UH instructors teaching one or more classes and students enrolled in one or more classes can use eCAFE. eCAFE can also be set up for staff members from the different campuses, colleges, divisions, departments and subjects to administer eCAFE for their organization.

  • How does eCAFE work?

If you are using eCafe for Distance Courses:

The Leeward Distance Education Committee has approved the following recommended “Campus Specific Questions”.  We highly encourage you to use these questions. This will help to establish consistent evaluations each semester for your online course and can be compared across courses and disciplines.
