Students have more choice than ever when it comes to choosing where they attend University. Increasingly, students now consider campus and IT facilities, links with local companies and the likelihood of them securing employment post-graduation, before they select their preferred institution. It’s never been more important for universities to impress students and remain competitive.
As part of a major transformation, UWS chose StREAM to measure usage of campus resources and systems and really understand the factors which affect student success, all geared towards its strategy of “dreaming, believing, achieving”.
Delivered as both a desktop and mobile app, StREAM allows UWS’s students to understand how they are engaging with the university across an array of physical and virtual campus resources and systems. Success metrics have been correlated with activity data to determine what ‘good’ looks like which not only allows the student to take more control of their learning, but also enables tutors to more effectively guide and help students by intervening when a student might deviate from tested pathways. The university now gains valuable insight that helps them provide focused support to their students to drive attainment and reduce attrition.
The Chief Information Officer (CIO) at UWS comments, “Solutionpath were able to offer us a production ready system, which gives a rapid time to insight and in turn this will help us work more effectively with the data around student engagement. The system gives us real-time data which allows for real time action.”
