Lighthouse Guides the Way

Lighthouse is an early alert retention product for higher education institutions. Using existing data stored in your institution’s systems, Lighthouse uses analytics to identify at-risk students and make that information available to those who can help.

Lighthouse FAQs

Intuitive Reporting

Lighthouse is the Right Choice for Your Institution

Our experiences have shown that there are a few key requirements that make this product a good fit for an institution:
Data Footprint
Data History
Desire and Ability to Act
Focus on Retention

Data Footprint

Your classes need to have enough data gathered through the LMS and SIS in order to be able to make valid predictions.

Data History

You should have at least six months of past data so that we can train a predictive model.

Desire and Ability to Act

Lighthouse will identify students who need help but it requires faculty and staff to reach out and assist at-risk students.

Focus on Retention

Above all, your institution realizes that retention is an issue and your data hold a key to improvement.

Let Lighthouse Guide Your Students to Success.

Blue Canary developed Lighthouse to work efficiently and seamlessly with your existing processes and systems. We’ll do all of the heavy lifting and work with you as a partner for student success.

Your Data, Your Model, Your Results

Blue Canary was founded on principles of collaboration and openness. There are no black box solutions with Lighthouse. The predictive models we develop are fully transparent to your institution…what data are used, what data drive the model, how the model was developed. Blue Canary will make the data behind the model available so your institution can further the research if desired. We know that many schools are pushing the analytics envelope themselves and a collaborative approach to identifying at-risk students benefits everyone.
