In our recent review of teaching and learning strategies from 50 universities across the globe, student retention featured at the heart of many of the strategies. Indeeds, 72% of strategies from universities outside of the current top 100 rankings had retention as a focus area. The latest PebblePad blog post offers up three critical success factors for promoting engagement and five practical strategies for boosting the chances of students completing their studies.

For the past 13 years, PebblePad has been a part of the ALT journey – even longer for company founders, Shane and Colin, who were presenting their VLE work at ALTC 2001 (Edinburgh), and who actually began chatting about building something PebblePad-like while at the 2002 ALTC (Sunderland) - no doubt over a biscuit or cake. And ALTC 2005 (Manchester) has a special place in PebblePad's history, as it was the event where PebblePad was launched as a commercial product. We're delighted to be attending ALTC 2018 in what will be the 25th conference for the Association of Learning Technology.
