Student Success is one of the Institutional Commitments in East Central Community College’s 2020 Vision strategic plan. In conjunction with the MSVCC, East Central implement AspirEDU’s Dropout Detective in combination with Link-Systems’ NetTutor into their online courses. The results of this pilot have been overwhelming and led to a long-term partnership between MSVCC, AspirEDU, and NetTutor. Since the implementation of this model for the 2013-14 academic year, and in conjunction with other initiatives such as course templating and a redesign of online professional development, ECCC has realized pass rate increases for 15-week and 8-week online courses ranging from 5.2 to 32 percent and withdrawal rate decreases ranging from 6.5 to 54 percent.

TAMPA, Fla., — AspirEDU, a leading provider of student retention analytics, announced that it has formed an Alliance Partnership with Instructure, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company and creator of the Canvas learning management system (LMS). Joint clients of the two companies will benefit from the systems’ tight integration and single sign-on capabilities.

Our team will be attending InstructureCon and we can’t wait to meet you! If you are attending, please attend our session on Wednesday at 3:15pm – Instructor Insight: Using Canvas Data to Review Teacher Performance.

Who are your best instructors? Canvas contains a lot of great data to help you find out, including log-in frequency, timeliness of grading, discussion board participation, overall class risk, and many other activities. AspirEDU’s new Instructor Insight solution reviews this data every night and creates updated charts, graphs, and visuals every day. Use this information to speed your instructor evaluations and to identify teachers who may need coaching.
