TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) has selected and implemented AspirEDU, Inc.'s Dropout Detective™ solution for identifying at-risk community college students enrolled in online programs. AspirEDU is a provider of educational analytics and student retention technology.
"One of the key goals of our eLearning division is to find solutions that help us support the success of our students who are taking online courses," said Audra Love Kimble, Assistant Executive Director for eLearning at the MCCB. "Dropout Detective will give us the tools to identify students who need that support. We can then be pro-active in reaching out to our students. We are especially pleased at how the AspirEDU team was able to accommodate our ability to support students who are taking courses at more than one school in our system."
Dropout Detective's fully-automated risk assessment capabilities were key factors in MCCB's decision to select AspirEDU.
