Angela Baldasare from The University of Arizona and Paul Dosal from The University of South Florida share strategies and success stories for using Illume and its Students Lists feature. They will tell you how to uncover insights about why students are at risk, identify who those students are, and design outreach that is tailored specifically to help those students tackle obstacles and get back on the path to success.
In this webinar you’ll see how the Student Lists feature in Illume helps institutions get to the right students at the right time with the right outreach.
Supporting each of your unique students on their pathways to success is crucial – but sorting through multiple systems, trying to prioritize, and then knowing the right way to intervene can make outreach a challenge.
Illume and the new Student Lists feature is helping our partner institutions like the University of Arizona and the University of South Florida understand the needs of specific student populations so they can intervene in real time. They’re using Student Lists to look closely at active groups of students, and then putting this data in the hands of those on the front lines to take early action. This level of detail about their students is not only changing daily outreach but guiding policy and decision-making.
Attendees Will Learn:
How to use Illume to understand the different predictors around student success
How to use Student Lists to segment student populations based on institution-specific predictions
How to use the insights to intervene differently for each group based on persistence probability
