TAMPA, Fla., May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AspirEDU, a leading provider of student retention analytics, announced that it has formed an Alliance Partnership with Instructure, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company and creator of the Canvas learning management system (LMS). Joint clients of the two companies will benefit from the systems' tight integration and single sign-on capabilities.
AspirEDU's Dropout Detective analyzes the behavior and academic success of the student population by reviewing Canvas data on a daily basis. Dropout Detective provides dashboards to administrators, advisors and instructors that identify students that are at risk of dropping out or failing courses. The solution can initiate automated text and email messages to those students. The Instructor Insight platform provides daily analytics on the engagement of teachers and instructors in their classes.
"We are honored to move to the next level in our relationship with Instructure. We have more than 50 Canvas schools using Dropout Detective today. Our joint clients are able to demonstrate that they have kept more students in school by using Canvas and Dropout Detective together," said Kimberley Munzo, President and CEO of AspirEDU, Inc. "As an Alliance Partner, we look forward to having even more opportunities to do what we're passionate about – helping schools help their students be more successful."
Instructure's alliance partnerships are designed to create a joint value-add between the partner and Canvas to help more fully meet the needs of customers and prospective customers. Instructure looks for partners that have tools and services that provide a great solution often requested by customers and aligns with those that are good to work with both from a customer-facing perspective and from an internal programmatic perspective.
"Canvas has a great set of tools and features but we are always looking for opportunities to deliver more functionality to our clients," said Melissa Loble, Vice President of Partners & Programs at Instructure. "Dropout Detective addresses a critical need in today's educational landscape – student retention analytics. It is tightly integrated to Canvas and provides schools with a daily assessment of their most at-risk students. The Alliance Partnership allows us to deliver more value to our clients."
