Webinar Announced: Using Digital Engagement Data to Enhance Student SuccessReading time: 2 minutes
Conway, NH – Digital engagement data has long been a useful supplementary metric to higher education institutions hoping to gain a complete understanding of the student experience. But in a semester with many new variables at play, including a sharp increase in online instruction and fewer students on campus, digital engagement data is no longer a “plus”, but a “must”. This subject will be the focus of a webinar taking place on Thursday, August 27th at 2 PM ET (11 AM PT).
The webinar will cover the process of accessing student digital engagement data, cleansing and organizing the data to prepare it for reporting or predictive modeling, and a demonstration of how Rapid Insight’s software facilitates improvements in student success and retention strategies. The webinar will be hosted by Analyst Manager James Cousins and Senior Account Manager Ryan Orlando, both of Rapid Insight.
“Now that the semester’s plans are set and students are registered, it’s critical to make good on the institutional mission of supporting students,” said James Cousins, Rapid Insight Analyst Manager. “Traditional methods of gauging students’ experiences are less available. Digital measures of student engagement can give an edge back to the faculty, advisors, and administrators committed to student success in all its forms.”
“It’s unknown how long and in what ways COVID-19’s influence will impact student success and retention efforts,” said Mike Laracy, Rapid Insight Founder and President. “This could be a longer and larger disruption than anticipated; it already has been, in many ways. Rapid Insight’s software makes it easy for any higher ed professional to gain a solid understanding of student engagement data, digital or otherwise.”
This webinar focuses on a topic that is timely and urgent. Colleges and universities nationwide are searching for ways to measure student success amid the challenging circumstances created by COVID-19. Digital engagement data will play a key role in developing retention strategies that are effective in the new education landscape.
