How Cloud-Based Intelligence Can Drive Student Success
AI and machine learning can help provide students with the personalized support they need, from enrollment to graduation.
ONLY 56 PERCENT OF STUDENTS enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program graduate within six years, according to the higher education technology association EDUCAUSE — and just 29 percent of students pursuing an associate degree graduate within three years.
