Driving Retention by Leveraging Student Communities and Data Insights

Wednesday, June 15th, at 4PM (ET)

a vibrant conversation between Yellowdig and Online Education Services (OES) titled “Leveraging Student Communities and Data Insights Drives Retention.” Yellowdig and OES partnered together after one of OES’s partner institution’s student survey found that student connectedness and the opportunity to network were two key components learners were looking for in their education. Together, they responded by creating an online Yellowdig welcome community and OES gathered data insights from the community and LMS. They quickly found that student connectedness also impacted persistence early in the student journey. In this webinar two OES team members, Pavan Gamage, the Director of Analytics Services, and Sacha Nouwens, the Executive Director of Student Experience and Insights will share their insights into how the actionable data models they created for their partner led to significant increases in student persistence.
