Higher One Adds Campus Labs
Higher One has acquired Campus Labs, a Buffalo, NY-based provider of data analytics and assessment software. With this addition, Higher One expands its product offerings to include "assessment management, strategic planning, accreditation, course evaluations, student engagement management, benchmarking, and at-risk student identification," according to a statement released this week by the company.
"Stakeholders are increasingly demanding information to show the strong value and impact of higher education," stated Higher One President and COO, Miles Lasater in a prepared statement. "Now, we are better prepared to assist our campus partners in gathering and providing this information, whether it is used for efforts related to institutional efficiency, accreditation, retention, or persistence. We will continue to look for ways to leverage the various modules under the Higher One umbrella to solve new problems like understanding and predicting student success."
Higher One and Campus Labs, both founded by students, develop tools and services designed to improve learning and operational efficiency. Higher One provides payment processing and refund disbursement services to colleges and universities. Campus Labs' hosted assessment platform enables institutions to collect, analyze, and use data to inform institutional decisions.
Additional information about the acquisition is available at the companies' Web sites.
