ISU Launches Navigate App – Bengal

Idaho State University released a
app with the help of the Education Advisory Council which aims to increase
student retention. The new application, called
Navigate, focuses on finding and repairing gaps in student support systems in order to
that students can get help before
they feel like dropping out of a class or college altogether. According to
the Education Data Initiative, more than a quarter of dropouts reported
that the reason for their abandonment is them
not being able to handle academics
To college. Thanks to predictive technology,
Navigate helps teachers and counselors
see which students are likely to have problems with the courses they are taking, so
they can step in and provide additional support if needed. If faculty members
need a little help using Navigate here
are guides on the UIS website.
EAB is a company that is committed to
help students stay in school and get
make the most of their education. According to their mission statement, “EAB’s
mission is to make education smarter
and our stronger communities. Their
the services are designed to help schools,
colleges and universities support their
students.
Navigate has functions that instructors
can use to watch where their students
are directed and whether or not they need
more help with their education. This makes
this by using the information collected from the
students, such as enrollment data, majors, transcripts, and GPA. In addition to that,
it uses data provided by faculty members
on interactions with students. Furthermore,
its database is updated daily.
Asked about the candidacy, Michelle Havens, educational adviser at
ISU College of Technology, said she
uses Navigate every day. She thinks it’s
an incredibly useful tool to help students
and counselors communicate, as well as access to resources offered by the UIS.
“I especially like the fact that I can text students
and have a central location to keep notes
about student encounters,” Havens said.
Navigate has functions for more than

just faculty though. Some of the resources that students can access through the
the application includes a to-do list, a calendar and
a study group coordinator. In the case
of a crisis, it can even be used to obtain a
intervention team for a student with
the simple click of a button. Moreover, Navigate also has a browser version
that students can access from their
office. The student’s login information is
same as Bengalweb and Moodle.
For those who wish to try Navigate for themselves, it is available for free on the App Store and GooglePlay
