PRODUCT JOURNEY

For the new applications delivered on the Ad Astra platform, we’ve adopted an improved, more agile product release strategy. This change allows us to quickly build innovative applications and features while maintaining the familiar elements and functionality you've come to love and expect.

This development shift allows us to iterate faster than ever before, and we’re excited to share what we’re working on with you. Below, you’ll find the product journey divided into the following three sections:

While we’ll continue our regular release process for our platform, this journey will be updated weekly (we’re not kidding, we’re working fast!) to keep you up to speed on all the progress taking place with our new applications. Check back often to see all the exciting developments, or better yet, follow this page to ensure you never miss a thing!


*Please note, this page shows a curated selection of features we’ve released and upcoming features on our journey. The status of each item is subject to change at any time.

Understand how Pathway design is striking an appropriate balance between course choice and sustainability. Pathway Health expands on Cohort Enrollment Health by looking at course sharing across Pathways and course choice within Pathways.

This feature will allow users to view students and their general data to ensure accuracy when running a Predict analysis. In addition to actual students, users can also see the total number of simulated students by type (new, transfer, returning, departing).
Users will have the ability to edit the simulated student population, which will allow institutions to account for changes not represented in historical trends.
We're making the analysis data from Align and Monitor available for reporting in Ad Astra. With this data, we will be releasing an ever-growing list of reports starting with course offering and Pathway analysis reports.

View and manage your Pathways in Ad Astra to help ensure you're paving the way for students to get the courses they need when they need them.

Support your institution’s completion promise with Cohort Enrollment Health, by measuring the fragmentation created in your pathways by your student's campus preferences.

Understand the impacts on student success before their graduation. See your different student groups' trajectory towards graduation in-order to spot opportunities for targeted interventions.

As you make updates to your courses, we are logging those changes and making it easy for you to see when and why changes were made to meet the needs of your students. 

To help ensure you're meeting the needs of your students, we're highlighting courses that have a high risk of section time conflicts and providing visibility into alternate times.

In Astra Schedule, there are times when the system times-out and allows users to continue working. Unfortunately, all the work performed after the time-out isn't preserved. With Session Timeout, you'll receive a warning that the system is nearing a time-out. To keep working, simply dismiss the alert. Otherwise, you'll be directed back to the login screen.

This feature was made available in the 8.9.2 release.
