This post combines results of two sets of studies. The first suggests that students are more likely to complete their program if they are emotionally supported and if they take part in experiential learning. The second suggest they are more likely to complete if they have a sense of self-efficacy, experience a sense of belonging, and perceive value in the curriculum. Success, writes Michael Feldstein, means helping "campuses make the cultural shift toward a focus on data-informed and research-grounded teaching excellence." It makes sensed that the future of educational technology isn't 'content delivery excellence'. But we need to ask whether we need to cater to the five points mentioned here, of figure out ways to surmount them.
