Using Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to Improve Academic Program Evaluation


Using Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to Improve Academic Program Evaluation

Recorded on September 26, 2023

Improve your academic programs using a modern-day program evaluation system.

Natural language processing, artificial Intelligence, and machine learning can help universities to allocate resources, identify areas of high demand, and optimize scheduling. Join us for an interactive discussion to learn how these powerful tools, embedded in a modern program evaluation system (PES), can help you to evaluate and improve academic programs and ensure that your students receive the best education possible.

The modern PES is becoming more powerful as it integrates these three technologies. A PES can now parse job postings, assess employer skill requirements, and analyze the skills taught in each program. It can predict program size, attrition, and margins. Academic leaders and program managers can use a modern PES to identify potential growth and cost-reduction opportunities, and to better align curriculum with job market requirements.
