The Online Student Profile Learning System: a Learner-Centered Approach to Learning Analytics
In April of 2011, Central Piedmont Community College received a Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) grant for CPCC and six partner colleges. The idea is to take our proven technology-based solution to addressing the retention and success of at-risk students (the Online Student Profile system developed in CPCC's 2003-08 Title III grant) and work with partner colleges to deploy both the OSP and the related faculty and staff development activities in order to improve retention and student success at those colleges. This presentation will highlight the institution of the OSP system at CPCC, student success outcomes, and the methods being employed to share the OSP learning system with NGLC partners. Participants will 1) Gain a comprehensive knowledge of the development and structure of the OSP learning system, including its theoretical underpinnings, 2) Understand the technology, professional development, and other requirements for instituting the OSP, and 3) Possess the tools to make an informed decision about whether the OSP could be deployed to improve student success at their school.
