American River College (ARC) in Sacramento, California, serves over 30,000 students, many from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds. ARC sought an online student engagement tool that aligned with these values and would support students facing various challenges.Request a demo
ARC implemented ConexED, a student engagement platform, to improve access to academic support services for students with limited transportation, multiple jobs, or caregiving responsibilities. The platform allowed students to join tutoring sessions from anywhere, reducing commute times and increasing accessibility.
"ConexED allows students to access academic support services from anywhere. Many of the students have long commute times. We are in the suburbs of Sacramento and public transportation could be better. Some students have shared that they spend one to two hours coming to campus. Some students spend more time on the bus than in the class or tutoring session they attend.
Once we started using ConexED, those students could join a tutoring session from home, on a work lunch break, or even while nursing their baby, and save hours in their day. This was critical to students who do not have cars, who have multiple jobs, or who care for dependents."
