Learning Analytics and Proactive Interventions

A comprehensive digital student success strategy includes technologies that inform educators and engage students. Your strategy may include learning analytics and case management software to identify at-risk students, enabling you to implement technology for proactive interventions.

Capabilities for Student Success

We offer the following capabilities to help you reach your student success goals:

Academic versus Administrative Computing: Bridging the Gap - "Recommendations" (Article #4)

As we explored earlier in this article series, "Separate Evolution of Two Systems" and "The Impact of Data on Student Success," disconnects between the two sides of campus computing, academic and administrative, can impact efforts to monitor and improve student success. And institutions today face mounting pressure to choose from a variety of solutions that help to mitigate or minimize this disconnect (see, "Possible Solutions"). Short of undertaking massive efforts to consolidate and centralize data systems for institutions, what is the best way to bridge the gap between existing systems in order to minimize negative impact?

Academic vs. Administrative Computing: Bridging the Gap - "Possible Solutions" (Article #3)

In the first two articles of this series, "Separate Evolution of Two Systems" and "The Impact of Data on Student Success," we focused on the disconnect between the two sides of campus computing, academic and administrative, examining the impact of the separate evolution of these systems on student success. One of the most significant impacts of these compartmentalized systems is the difficulty to put data together to see a holistic picture of the student. Today, there is increasing awareness that a holistic view of student performance, based on accurate data, can positively impact student success.

Academic vs. Administrative Computing: Bridging the Gap - "The Impact of Data on Student Success" (Article #2)

If academic (LMS) and administrative (SIS) systems can coexist, each serving their own unique purpose, what's wrong with having different systems at the end of the day? There is certainly a good reason to keep a separation of concerns - why, for example, should learning systems have to worry about keeping track of a student's financial record or incoming test scores? Conversely, why should a back-end student information system (SIS) invest in keeping tabs on the student's learning experience?

Increasing Student Success and Retention at Institutions

Institutions have goals of student success and retention, hoping to see large numbers of their students graduate on time. Universities and colleges want their students to be successful, and wish to help them remove obstacles blocking their path to program completion and earning a degree. St. Petersburg College (SPC) realized a need for technology to help them remove these obstacles—the Student Success Plan (SSP). The open source SSP case management software supports a holistic coaching and counseling model which expedites proactive interventions for students in need.

Getting Started with Open Analytics - Action

In this article we discuss the role that Student Success Plan (SSP) can play in Open Learning Analytics. Institutions continue to call for ways to improve the success rate for their student population. As increasing academic and personal demands present obstacles to a student's successful outcome, institutions have sought ways to help manage a clear academic pathway, positively impacting student success. SSP allows counseling services, student services, and student support to guide a student to their educational career success.
