Congrats to our friends at American Public University System for a record-setting year:
In 2014, a record 10,000 students earned graduate and undergraduate degrees from AMU and APU.
And excited to see great results with their LRM implementation!
We are taking steps to further improve success, particularly among new students in high-enrollment gateway courses. In 2014, we completed a successful pilot of the new ClearPath Learning Relationship Management (LRM) System, a social media tool that fosters engagement and collaboration. The results: ClearPath users, on average, completed the enrollment and transfer credit process at a higher rate, had lower withdrawals and drops, exhibited a higher GPA in their initial courses, and registered for subsequent classes earlier than those in the larger student population.
Plus, it looks like this year is shaping up to be even better:
In 2015, we expect to open ClearPath to all undergraduate APUS students as part of our ongoing effort to support their success.
