Creating a Student-Centered, Mobile-First Ecosystem

Monday, February 09 | 3:15PM–4:00PM | California Pavilion Promenade, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
The University of Kentucky instituted a mobile-first strategy for all student academic and administrative systems, accomplished with the development of a student mobile ecosystem, which provides students with real-time access to information about their academic progress. Mobile applications allow students to access academic alerts and class registration with smartphones and tablets, as well as a course-scheduling cart that's integrated with the degree audit system. The mobile ecosystem allows departments to interact with students in real time, informing them of their progress or needed corrections. The academic mobile ecosystem is made available to all colleges.

OUTCOMES: Understand the necessity of a mobile-first strategy for students * Learn about the importance of mining student data to create a learning analytics system
