It’s October and at HelioCampus, we’re excited about the upcoming EDUCAUSE conference. Why are we so excited? Well, we are thrilled to be involved with two different panels, along with forward thinking leaders in higher education, to discuss institutional & business analytics, structured and unstructured data, and improving the student experience. Come and hear insights from our awesome panel of institutions including UNC General Administration, St. Edward’s University, Ithaca College, UMass Lowell, University of Kentucky and UNLV. If you are planning to attend EDUCAUSE, we hope you’ll swing by one, or both, of our sessions, or come visit us at Booth 1052.

Whether you are getting started with institutional analytics, looking to extend existing investments, or broadening data visualization and data science services across your institution, a thorough due diligence process is a pre-requisite.

Session 2: Analyzing the Full Student Experience: The Powerful Intersection between Curricular, Co-Curricular and Student Life Data
It is now possible to build a data infrastructure that combines structured (e.g., admissions, enrollment, financial aid) and unstructured (e.g., wi-fi library, LMS logins, mobile, card swipes) data that can provide greater visibility into curricular, co-curricular and student life experiences and outcomes. Learn how this broader view into key non-traditional metrics across the student lifecycle help inform strategy and action.
