The Academic Challenge / Student Retention, Conversion, Employability

A Student Success Engine that Works

An experiential education, with mentoring faculty and deep connections to learning communities, produce students who are more productive in both life and their future careers. Students need their institutions to be a constant companion throughout their academic journey, whether or not they are at risk. New platforms can follow students through their entire academic life cycle. These platforms offer consistent, effective, personal interactions that make students feel connected and integrated into your institutional family.

By increasing instructor-student interactions and improving support, you can create mentoring relationships with students to make a positive impact on their academic performance. The result? Increased retention and higher completion rates. Cited from educause

Why A Learning Relationship Management Platform is an answer

We as human beings and learners are social. It is no wonder that 82% of millennial students are on Facebook. When Marc Beniof, founder of, declared, “business is social,” a revolution in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platforms ensued, and an entirely new ecosystem emerged. Educational Technologies are now harnessing this power to create new relationships that connect learners to their academic experience.

Using intelligent and interactive technologies, learners can focus on course content as faculty help them manage the learning process. “Learning Relationship Management” (LRM) is a new classification, defined as software that provides students, faculty, and staff with a digital tool set to monitor learning progress in real time and flag moments of intervention when needed. Today’s technology allows for more personal instruction, deeper ties to the institution, and a better academic experience. Students perform better, completion rates go up, and the institutional spend on recruitment gets more efficient.

Why Competency-Based Education is an answer

When students complete a degree in any field of study, they should have something to show for it. All too often, however, a degree alone won’t speak loudly enough for a student fresh out of college, even if they have all the skills they need for a first job. That’s where Competency-Based Education (CBE) comes in.

CBE doesn’t refer to a specific technology; it’s a mindset for approaching curriculum design and student assessment. As its name implies, an effective implementation of CBE ensures that upon  graduation, students will be able to showcase their abilities and what areas they are competent in. As Johsua Kim writes on Inside Higher Ed, “Competency-based education seeks to flip the structure of traditional education, where seat-time is held constant but learning is variable.” When students are able to master content at their own pace via CBE systems, students save time and money as they accelerate their path to not only a degree, but deeper and more qualified understanding of the subject matter.

The Academic Challenge

Student Retention, Conversion, Employability

Competency-Based Education allows students to progress as they demonstrate mastery of academic content, regardless of time, place, or pace of learning. Competency-based strategies provide flexibility in the way that credit can be earned or awarded, and provide students with personalized learning opportunities. CBE opens up the possibilities for personalized learning, whether that’s facilitated with online courseware, adaptive learning platforms, blended learning projects, or other means. This type of learning leads to better student engagement because the content is relevant to each student and tailored to their unique needs.
