AspirEDU Partners with Mississippi Community College Board to Help Increase Online Student Retention

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.  The solution is integrated with the schools' learning management system and analyzes the behavior and academic success of the online student population.  Dropout Detective provides dashboards to administrators, advisors and instructors that identify students that are at risk of dropping out or failing online courses.  The solution can initiate automated text and email messages to those students.

"We are honored that the Mississippi Community College Board has looked to us to help with student retention efforts," said Kimberley Munzo, CEO of AspirEDU, Inc.  "As the community colleges continue to grow their online enrollment, we look forward to partnering with them to increase student retention and help even more students graduate."
