Clinton Community College has faced continued declining enrollments for the last five years, resulting in the College’s active pursuit of proven student retention mechanisms to assist with enrollment stabilization. The College has decided to create an online orientation module in Moodle to improve the “new student experience” and support a smooth onboarding process that effectively provides students with information critical to their success as well as aids in their ability to better navigate the college experience. In addition, the college seeks to encourage student self-awareness, learning skills and familiarity with the online learning platform. These intentionally designed interactions delivered via an E-orientation model that employs scholarly proven information design, constructivist and social constructivist theories will ensure the College’s new E-Orientation will foster student success and retention.
