Student performance and success should drive strategy

Launching a mobile app does not improve student engagement, retention or success

Improving student engagement, retention and success are the top goals of most apps for higher education institutions. Despite what many vendors say, there’s no single product that can solve these challenges.

Issues with student engagement, retention and success are often connected to ineffective student communication and frustrating student experiences (due in part to technology solutions built for the school and not the student) leading to a perceived lack of customer service/care.

We believe ineffective student communication is one of the causes of customer service issues, low engagement, poor retention, and ultimately less student success. The DubLabs mobile platform is not focused on being mobile, but on solving the problem of student communication.

We want to help your school focus on solving your communications challenge, improving your ability to connect with today’s students to drive better student engagement, and support student success.
