(PRWEB) September 07, 2016
As nearly 30 percent of college students drop out after their first year, and smartphones are increasing becoming a part of student life, higher educational institutions are recognizing the need to implement a robust mobile strategy that helps to keep students engaged. Chris Hopkinson, vice president of strategy at DubLabs, LLC, a leading provider of school branded, unified mobile applications that empower higher education institutions to drive student engagement, and Gordon Suggs, senior director of enterprise applications at Xavier University, will discuss how the Xavier mobile app on the DubLabs platform is providing the tools students need to succeed in a way that makes them want to use the campus mobile app and return to it frequently.
In conjunction with Instructure, the webinar will also address why native integrations with student information systems (SIS) and Canvas, a learning management system (LMS), are central to student success.
