July 16, 2007 - A month ago I was writing about my excitement due to the ConnectEdu team’s record number of high school implementations: over 100 new high schools in each month since March. Deploying Connect! to improve access to higher education is our primary goal here at ConnectEdu and our work continues. This July, we have more than doubled the number of Connect! users from a year ago and are continuing to build on our utilization figures. Each week more students are logging in to access Connect! than the week prior – that’s right these young people are taking advantage of the summer to get an edge up on their college planning. Good for them!
As we stop today and take a short breath, I’d like to congratulate the ConnectEdu Team for continuing to set the bar higher each month. The growth of the Connect! Network (a Quarter-Million Students!) is exciting as we work with counselors, admission officers and countless others to empower students as they take control of their futures.
Let’s keep it going… we’ve only just begun!
