Are effective retention strategies dependent upon ed tech? - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Ed Tech Magazine reports the six-year cohort entering college in 2009 graduated just 53% of its students, a number which demonstrates the need for effective retention strategies, perhaps centered around tech solutions.According to a recent Eduventures survey, 60% of responding institutions said technology was a part of their retention strategy, with more than 80% using an external resource. But only 38% of respondents indicated satisfaction with the technology's help in improving completion rates. Institutions have a responsibility to work more closely with IT in retention tech implementation, but vendors should look to partner more effectively with institutions in developing retention solutions. http://www.educationdive.com/news/are-effective-retention-strategies-dependent-upon-ed-tech/420772/
