The two day summit was attended by representatives from all 24 Ontario public colleges.
Gary Hannah, President and CEO of Vocantas, along with Doug Ouderkirk, Executive Director of Academic Operations and Planning at Algonquin College, presented during the morning Lightning Round session about Algonquin College’s use of the Scaller™ solution as a tool to interact with students to improve student retention.

Scaller reaches out to students with a human voice asking a series of interactive questions that reveals areas where each student is struggling. Based on this information the College is able to follow up with each student at highest risk of exiting their program prematurely, and provide students with support services that meet their needs.
