Educational Analytics Firm AspirEDU, Inc. Partners with LMS Solution Provider eThink Education to Proactively Identify At-Risk Learners and Increase Retention

By February 5, 2019 No Comments

AspirEDU, Inc. (AspirEDU) and eThink Education have announced a partnership to offer student retention analytics and instructor engagement analytics in the Moodle Learning Management System (LMS). AspirEDU’s robust analytics solutions are able to be seamlessly integrated directly within eThink’s Moodle environment to provide instructors, advisors, and administrators with a tool to identify and support at-risk students.

eThink Education provides a fully-managed eLearning solution for open-source Moodle, covering all LMS needs including implementation, cloud hosting, integration, consultation, and management services. eThink Education takes a consultative approach, offering solutions like AspirEDU to LMS users based on individualized needs.

AspirEDU offers two important analytics solutions that help schools support their students.  Dropout Detective™ automatically identifies at-risk students by analyzing data from Moodle every night, starting right at the beginning of the term or school year. It also allows school users to build personalized dashboards of only the students assigned to them – great for academic advisors or sports coaches. Instructor Insight™ provides metrics on the engagement and performance of instructors in their courses. It measures grading timeliness, course activity, and course risk, among other statistics. These two solutions are tightly integrated into Moodle via LTI integration, so school personnel never have to leave the Learning Management System to access this critical data.

“Learning Management Systems contain many great data and we built our platforms to make this data actionable for school personnel,” said Kimberley Munzo, CEO and co-founder of AspirEDU.  “I have been an instructor and an administrator, and I am so proud to have built tools that I know are easy-to-use and affordable for schools of all sizes.”

“eThink is pleased to partner with AspirEDU to offer our clients a more proactive way to identify students that might need more support as student retention is a high priority for all of the institutions that we serve,” said Brian Carlson, CEO and Co-Founder of eThink Education.
