Student Success Software – Students say campus technology needs major overhaul–but why?


Tom’s Comments:

Unfortunately, the data in this report validates, the  sad fact that traditional education institutions have remained institution focused. This is in contrast to educationally progressive institutions being student and student success focused.

  • Traditional education has legacy,  minimally integrated, Student Information Systems (SIS), Learning Management Systems (LMS), and Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS), all from differing providers, that have historically worked well for the institution
  • These legacy systems have historically supported an incumbent, traditional, one size fits all teaching methodology, which research has proven to be ineffective and inefficient, in empowering students to be relevantly and adaptively successful
  • Students, who interact with multiple software platforms, understand which ones are successfully integrated, are easy to use (e.g. single sign on) and deliver the outcomes they are looking for
  • Students have learned through personal painful experience, supported by validated research, that ‘technology’ alone will not empower their success; seamlessly integrated, student success outcomes focused, educationally innovative, professionally facilitated, software, in a blended and flipped environment will
  • Traditional educators have a history of discounting what’s best for their students and focusing on what’s best for the institution
  • Since Students = Revenue and Students are gravitating to those organizations that directly and measurably empower sustained,  advanced, student success, performance improvement outcomes, those traditional education organizations, unwilling to change paradigms, will see their revenue decrease and wonder why. It’s happening now
  • Student focused, progressive, educationally innovative organizations will thrive. Those traditional educators, that are institution focused and unwilling to change to a 21st century, advanced, student success, performance improvement outcomes focused paradigm, will atrophy.
