The Blackboard Retention Center


The Retention Center provides an easy way for instructors to discover which students in their courses are at risk. Instructors can communicate with struggling students and help them take immediate action for improvement. The Retention Center replaces the Early Warning System, and will automatically inherit any rules you had set up with that tool.

You can begin using the Retention Center features immediately—no setup required.
