Austin Peay State University

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University is featured in a new e-book about how colleges and universities are finding innovative ways to reach more learners effectively and with greater impact.

The e-book, titled “Game Changers: Education and Information Technologies,” includes a case study about Degree Compass, which was launched at APSU by Dr. Tristan Denley, provost and vice president of academic affairs.

“Game Changers,” published by Educause, is a collection of chapters and case studies contributed by college and university presidents, provosts, faculty and other stakeholders.

Under Denley’s leadership, APSU in 2011 created Degree Compass, a course recommendation tool provides each student with personalized recommendations based on their academic transcript. Since its debut this past spring at APSU, the tool has gained national attention in higher education circles because of its abilities to help students stay on track to graduation.

Degree Compass also was a centerpiece for a $1 million grant Tennessee received in late July 2011 from the Complete College America fund with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. APSU received half of the $1 million grant, which Denley is using to refine the innovation.

He also is working with the Tennessee Higher Education Commission to develop the system so that it can be deployed statewide to help boost the state’s higher education graduation rates among community colleges and four-year institutions.
