About the Retention Center

The Retention Center provides an easy way for instructors to discover which students in their courses are at risk. Based on preconfigured rules and rules instructors create, students’ engagement and participation are visually displayed, quickly alerting them to potential risk. From the Retention Center, instructors can communicate with struggling students and help them take immediate action for improvement.

Instructors can begin using the Retention Center features immediately—no setup required.

The Retention Center replaces the Early Warning System feature with easy workflows, while retaining all existing Early Warning System data and rules.
