We are happy to meet, openly discuss any graduate situation with university personnel anywhere in the world. If you introduce yourself we are happy to connect on skype as doctoralnet.
Your students sign into your portal with a similar look/feel to your online presence. Your faculty can also adjust both the maps through the processes or any content as they see fit.
Part time students, and those at a distance from their university are 7.5 times less likely to complete (almost a magnitude of difference) Rodwell & Neumann, 2008. At the same time, in early pilot studies, it makes no difference in terms of engagement whether the graduate students are full time or part time, they both use the website.
In a world of increasing diversity on campus it is important that students can get the help they need as they need it 12/7. Whether they are confused about the specifics or process of research design, need to develop skills such as academic writing or critical thinking, or need a boost in motivation they will easily access a full range of content with multiple options for them to choose based upon their learning preferences as adults.
Building on 40 years of socialization/retention and completion research the tools are designed to equalize the opportunities for these students to manage the requirements of graduate education and find: balance, independence, development, and support (Gardner, S., 2006, 2008).
With DoctoralNet, the only reason a student will feel isolated is if they don’t turn it on or reach out. With 80+ webinars a year, a range of opt-in services geared to boost motivation and nudge towards success, plus groups they can join for specifics of either academic writing or getting started again once stalled, DoctoralNet answers the needs your students have that they are hesitant to admit to you.
At the cost of a textbook per student per year, saving 1% of those who would have dropped out or taken time off .and this service pays for itself. But while that matters what matters most is…
DoctoralNet and MastersNet platforms improve the graduate/postgraduate experience through research and technology.
