About the Customer

Becker College is one of the 25 oldest institutions in the U.S., tracing its history from the union of two Massachusetts educational institutions—one founded in 1784 with a charter signed by American Revolutionaries John Hancock and Samuel Adams, and the other in 1887. Today the College’s nearly 1,800 students live and learn on the College’s two distinctively New England campuses, located six miles apart, in the heart of Massachusetts.

Scope and Challenges

The first technology Becker College integrated was a Live Tiles platform built on the Office 365 system. Live Tiles is an app system that also operates like an interface. For example, a student can have one tile open showing the weather while another tile displays the current news headlines. All the tiles update in real time. Becker ran a Live Tiles pilot program for 6-9 months with non-traditional students, and they found a 90% increase in student response.

Live Tiles is now being used by traditional and non-traditional students as a student-facing front-end system. It is a centralized online location for all student resources that easily integrates with Becker College’s learning management system. 

The second technology Becker College integrated was Discourse Analytics which uses Azure machine learning technology. Becker is embracing learner-centric outcomes instead of institution-centric outcomes.

 In essence, Becker uses Discourse Analytics to gather specific insights and data on students to develop profiles on each student. Predictive analytics help design personalized learning perspectives, which when applied, help individual students succeed in the best way they can. 

Becker College will utilize Azure machine learning and Microsoft AI to help create student profiles to place participants based off of aptitude, fit, and acumen. Agile University will continue to apply their Agile Mindset and curriculum approach in this new program, to have the support of faculty to implement the agile curriculum, and to integrate Microsoft technology to enhance their programs. There’s no doubt that with ongoing movement toward success, Becker College’s students will have sustainable careers that pay forward all of the valuable learnings they acquired there.

Outcome and Implications

This innovative technology aligns with the college’s forward-thinking agile approach. It empowers educators to understands the variety of challenges students might face and design flexible curriculums that fill those gaps and enable the creation of personalized learning pathways designed use Azure data to be effective and engaging.
