Day 1 Presentation
National Data, SUNY Trends, and Campus Reality: What Does Our Data Tell Us?
Who are our online students? What degrees are they seeking? And how can we best support them? These are some of the questions we often ask ourselves, but may have difficulty answering. National data and/or local anecdotes provide some insights, but it’s also important to consider SUNY-wide and campus level trends. The Open SUNY Campus Dashboards, a series of published data visualizations, provide easier access to information about online courses, programs, and students within SUNY. The data can be filtered multiple ways to address a variety of inquiries. This presentation will demonstrate how to use the dashboards, discuss the benefits and limitations of the data, and explain how to appropriately leverage the data for campus needs.
