Colleagues –

 

Looking for institutions that have launched the Starfish app in conjunction with their LMS and SIS – focused on student retention and recovery.

 

Anyone using it this broadly, in conjunction with its base academic advisor component?

 

Thanks –

Michael,

We are using Starfish at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and it's been a positive experience. We'd be glad to provide more details to you off-line.

Best,

Mike, We're wrapping up implementation of Starfish; so far working with the company has been a very good experience for us. Our LMS (Moodle) is Software as a Service and that company (Remote Learner) has been giving Starfish a bit of trouble in integrating the product into their system. Generally integration into Moodle (even with outside service providers) seems to be quite smooth according to other people we asked. As we work on the integration issues with Remote Learner, integrating it into our SIS, Jenzabar EX, was rather simple for us. The biggest hurdle, and what presented as the major barrier of entry to other schools we polled, was not the integration into these systems but the policies and momentum of the institution getting faculty and students to actively use it. That's a problem our academic side is attacking at the moment – from IT's side though, I would give the experience of working with Starfish a big thumbs up. All the best, Greg AVP of Information Technology / CIO Cape Cod Community College From: "Scheuermann,Michael" > Reply-To: The EDUCAUSE CIO Constituent Group Listserv > Date: Thu, 7 Jun 2012 08:44:08 -0400 To: "CIO@LISTSERV.EDUCAUSE.EDU" > Subject: [CIO] Starfish Application Colleagues – Looking for institutions that have launched the Starfish app in conjunction with their LMS and SIS – focused on student retention and recovery.
