McGraw Hill Updates Learning Site to Help Professors Better Identify At-Risk Students

McGraw-Hill Education has upgraded McGraw-Hill Connect, its online learning platform for colleges and universities, in a move to help empower professors. The upgraded design is based on feedback from more than 125 instructors at 70 schools. It is also part of a $130 million investment in digital research and development that the company has made over the last year.

The platform now allows professors to identify at-risk students. The tool identifies students that are having a hard time and alerts professors about these students so that professors can intervene before it is too late. The professor will get an automatic notification if it seems their student is slipping so that they can give them extra attention.

The updated version of Connect also features an updated gradebook which gives students more transparency about how they are being graded. Instructors can use the automated tool to create assignments and provide students with information about the coursework and how they will be graded.
