Abstract

Universities are increasingly challenged by the problem of students abandoning their studies at the undergraduate and the graduate levels. Research shows that students abandon their studies particularly during the first year of university study. This early drop-out phenomenon holds true for traditional on-campus studies as well as for distance offerings. A research team from three universities has developed a multi-media support environment (SAMI@Perseverance) offering tools to stimulate conditions favouring success and persistence in university studies. The electronic environment allows educators to determine the learning characteristics of students at university entry. This portrait of the learner allows the researchers to personalize SAMI@Perseverance according to the needs of the individual. During the session we will present the objectives of the research, the S@MI-Perseverance Web environment (http://sami-perseverance.savie.ca) and the early results of our tests in the field.
