Keeping students engaged

As college enrollment sags by 26% since 2010, higher education institutions look for creative ways to keep their students engaged. Indian River State College announced this week it will begin using a digital platform from the New York City-based startup Rah Rah as it attempts to keep its students from dropping out. The mobile app aggregates numerous institutional systems into a single interface, providing students a way to check on everything related to their college life, like sporting events, advising and financial dealings. Leaders at Indian River, a college based in Fort Pierce, Florida, that advertises itself as “the most affordable college in Florida,” said they needed a way to keep their students, most of whom don’t live on campus, connected and engaged wherever they live. Colin Wood reports.
