The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities this week introduced a new online course that seeks to help college administrators design and use proactive student advising systems. Such systems attempt to nudge more students toward graduation and often include the use of technology, such as predictive analytics. Creating a high-quality proactive advising approach can be costly and complicated, said APLU. To help colleges get it right, the group's six-lesson, self-paced course draws on the experience of veteran college administrators.
