Lumina Foundation Invests in EduNav to Accelerate Breakthrough Approach to Student Success

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 settembre 2019

Lumina Impact Ventures has invested in EduNav, the leading provider of algorithmic-based academic planning software for colleges and universities, to further EduNav’s unique, cutting-edge approach to student success. The investment was sparked by EduNav’s ability to automatically generate and update optimal educations plans to help individual students graduate or transfer on time. EduNav’s software alerts students and academic advisors when students are about to register for or drop a class that could delay finishing or transferring. The software also optimizes future class scheduling by leveraging data from aggregated education plans.Many students take too long to graduate or transfer, and the students who achieve these milestones often take too many courses. Only 20 percent of bachelor’s degrees and 5 percent of associate degrees are earned on time*. At the same time, there are not enough academic advisors to help students, and advisors often spend much of their time doing academic planning instead of advising. The national average caseload is 482 students per advisor, and many advisors carry caseloads of 600 students or more.EduNav helps prevent students from making registration mistakes and taking unnecessary courses, enables advisors to focus on advising instead of creating student schedules and ed plans, and helps administrators plan future course inventories to improve institution-wide graduation rates. EduNav is the only solution that can do this because it uses cloud-based combinatorial optimization and artificial intelligence on continuously updated information that flows among students, advisors, administrators, and the institution’s student information and degree audit systems. The EduNav system takes a wide array of factors into account when computing the optimal education plan for each student, including degree requirements, institution-specific advisory rules, complex class rules and prerequisites, current seat availability, each student’s unique academic history, and other constraints.
