Navarro College increases student passage rates by 11% with the help of online academic support tools from Upswing
Smart phone support tools help students 24/7
When Navarro College in rural Texas first created a tutoring center, they started small, opening a simple math lab. Before long, this evolved into a full-service tutoring center providing help to students in a variety of subjects. In order to meet demand, Navarro supplemented the center with tutors from an online tutoring company. The challenge was to find an easy-to-use tool that helped the school better communicate with their students — and a tool that students would be comfortable using.
New lines of communication provide enhanced student support — and an 11% increase in student passage rates
By tapping into Upswing’s student-focused platform, Navarro College could now have instructors, tutors, advisors and administrators communicate directly with students online, opening the door to better, clearer interactions. But this was just the beginning of this student-support partnership.
