Topic: Retaining Online Students
Online universities face increased accountability for student success. The presenters will detail retention initiatives implemented by a large online university with a non-traditional student population and present findings from a systematic evaluation of the initiatives. The retention initiatives can serve as a framework for student success at other institutions.
Addressing the traditionally indistinct boundaries between academics and student services when it comes to accepting responsibility for online student success, our managed, evidence-based collaborative advising model at Ashford University depends on interaction among faculty, advisors, and data analytics to provide accurate dashboard information, timely interventions, and enable our students’ success.
