Into Action: The Integration of Actionable Data for Earl(ier) Student Intervention, Results Improvements, and Overall Performance Metrics

Using actionable data and analytics can revolutionize the decision making process of both faculty and students and inform the learning process.  When integrated into the learning framework, analytics can transform the ability to deliver on the promise of closing the achievement gap and improving results.  Please join us for a considerate discussion to share best practices and learn about the new tools available to educators to make this transformation possible.

Across multiple software solutions and LMS integrations, McGraw-Hill will showcase a few examples of using data analytics that are integrated into learning software technologies at the course, program and institutional level for student retention, improved results, and overall institutional performance enhancement.

Today's Technology for Tomorrow's Classroom
Is it true that things take longer to happen than you think they will, and then they happen faster than you thought they could?  It was once impossible to imagine being able to attend class without ever stepping foot on a college campus or having a study group with classmates who live in three different time zones.  Now we almost can't imagine life or learning any other way.  With the capacity of modern educational technology, what else is possible?  Attend this session to review quick, easy, free, and almost free technologies that help educators of today start imagining the possibilities for the classrooms of tomorrow.
