Summary

Want to intervene with at-risk students before it's too late to turn things around?

The Blackboard Retention Center is a user-friendly progress tracking tool that helps instructors easily identify, communicate with, and motivate at-risk students. Instructors can employ this tool to nudge those students who show signs of being at risk and intervene if necessary before it is too late for the students to turn things around. In this presentation, we will share our strategies on how to effectively use this tool in a time-efficient and innovative manner across different course settings, including large classes and fully online courses.
