You may have noticed a new pop-up question that appears when you login to the fall 2012 Integrate update asking if you would like to report your progress to the CLL offices. You may wonder what this is all about, so let me take a moment to explain what is happening.
One of our primary responsibilities to you, our students, is to help you succeed in each course you take by distance education. Feedback from students over many years has been consistent: By far the greatest issue they face is the scheduling of their time to complete courses in a timely manner, both to improve learning outcomes and to reduce end-of-semester stress.
Integr@te incorporates tools to help you monitor your progress. Often, however, our students do not check their progress against their recommended schedule and fall behind. Integr@te now provides you the option to report your progress so that we can come alongside you as you work toward course completion. All that is reported is your student ID number and your progress report. Nothing else is communicated. To help provide a "safety net" and promote your ultimate success, we simply need to know who you are and where you are in your studies.
In future semesters, we hope that we will be able to replace progress reports in our learning centers with the more complete, more accurate information from Integr@te. That should provide you with better support and less hassle as you pursue your studies. For now, we are asking for your help as we seek to develop new ways of making your distance education experience more fulfilling, effective and stress free.
