Aston University, founded in 1895, with its roots firmly in industry and the local economy, was awarded Gold in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2017. The University has a long history of delivering outstanding education for its students, and teaching a diverse body of students the skills required for them to thrive in business and the professions.
Aston University has appointed UK based Digital Engagement Learner Analytics specialist Solutionpath to partner with the University on an initiative which will provide greater insight into how students engage with life on campus. The University will use Solutionpath’s StREAM software platform (to be branded MyEngagement at Aston) to provide data on activities including their use of online learning tools, reading lists, coursework submission and attendance, and use StREAM in support of a range of better outcomes including student attainment and student wellbeing, and also student retention.
“Aston University prides itself on its diverse student population, high rates of graduate employability, and strong relationships with business and local industry for placements, collaborative research and training courses. As such, we wanted to work with a partner with a proven track record, who could implement a learner analytics platform with the most important people in mind, our students, and our personal academic tutors.”
Professor Helen Higson, Provost and Deputy Vice Chancellor, Aston University
