Help Your Customers Track Online Learner Engagement

Empower your customers to use online learning participation and engagement data to support learner success.

Accurate Online Student Engagement Data is Critical to Creating Real-Time Responses to Support Students

Your district partners are looking to connect data from Learning Management Systems (LMS) and data from Student Information Systems (SIS), in order to properly evaluate student participation and engagement patterns, enabling meaningful teacher interactions and just-in-time support for online learners.

Helping Districts Enact Just-In-Time Interventions

When the LMS and SIS vendors work together they can provide powerful data to their school district partners. When district administrators and educators have both data sets combined they can more effectively and efficiently support students across all learning platforms.
