Inspire by Civitas Learning is a tool that helps advisors pinpoint who is in need of outreach. Through the use of complex data science, Inspire makes it possible understand the factors influencing each student’s likelihood to persist, and have meaningful, proactive conversations with the students.
My role on the Inspire team was to evolve a beta application that was gaining traction but needed some love. I spoke with the advisors to get a sense of what was working well and what they wished the app could do. I thoroughly researched the market, the users, the problems and used all information gathered to drive the development of an all new application. The new version is now in the hands of hundreds of advisors around the country.
