Academic Partnerships (AP), a global provider of online services for higher education, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with AspirEDU Inc., an industry leader in retention technology.
The alliance will supplement AP’s current retention strategies and services through the use of AspirEDU’s suite of cloud-based technologies that will enable AP’s university partners to effectively identify at-risk students and further improve online completion rates.
AspirEDU’s proactive technology uses proprietary algorithms to analyze in-course performance, singling out those students most likely to drop out or fail.
“At Academic Partnerships, we strive to ensure successful graduation for all students working to achieve their aspirations,” said Randy Best, chairman and CEO of Academic Partnerships. “We believe our partnership with AspirEDU is yet another value proposition to our partner universities to ensure the success of the students they serve.”
“This exciting partnership will bolster even further Academic Partnership’s proven capabilities to positively impact online education and the success rates of students,” said Kimberley Munzo, CEO of AspirEDU. “As online program enrollments continue to grow, we are honored that AP has teamed with us to meet the expanding needs of universities, and we are thrilled that even more students will benefit from our platform and retention services.”
AspirEDU is the most recent addition to AP’s proprietary portfolio of strategic relationships and initiatives that includes Instructure-Canvas, an advanced learning management system that also powers the AP Open Network -- the first global student engagement and online course delivery system, as well as Instructional Connections, a leading coaching provider.
Academic Partnerships (AP) helps universities convert their traditional degree programs into an online format, recruits qualified students and supports enrolled students through graduation. Serving more than 40 public institutions, AP is one of the largest representatives of public universities’ online learning in the United States. AP is guided by the principle that the opportunities presented through distance learning make higher education more accessible and achievable for students in the U.S. and globally.
