Podcast: Student Success at Scale - What Have We Learned from Applying Technology to Persistent Challenges?


Josh Jarrett, Deputy Director, Education, Postsecondary Success, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Multiple efforts are under way to leverage technology to improve student success, including initiatives in online courseware, adaptive learning, social media, and learning analytics. What have we learned from these pioneering efforts? What is working for students and institutions, and where are emerging solutions overhyped? In this session, we will share the latest findings from multiple efforts to improve student engagement, learning, retention, and degree completion. We'll try to make sense of a rapidly evolving ecosystem and share some humble predictions for the future.
