Why We Integrate

Every college and university faces similar challenges as they move their program administration and delivery fully or partially online. Selecting technologies and weaving them together for a seamless student experience, while extracting the data needed to power actionable insights, requires access to great tools and engineering heft.

Noodle brings to the table our stack of best-in-class tools and integrates them with your critical systems. Keep reading to learn how we do it.

We Build on…
What You Started

You hold vast riches of data in your ​existing​ Learning Management System (LMS), Student Information System (SIS), and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) System that we’ll extend and leverage together. We do so with a focus on data security, abiding by the protocols set in our ISO 27001 certification.

Our integrations are designed to extract just the data we agree will help us steer the development of your programs and give our teams the information they need to prioritize outreach to prospective and matriculated students.

The beauty of Noodle’s approach to technology is that we’re constantly developing a cutting edge stack and can bring that to schools pre-integrated and pre-loaded with our approach to data analysis.

We Complement Your Stack with Ours

For most tech service providers in the online education ecosystem, their biggest costs are in sales and integration. When these providers work with us, they don’t have to sell or integrate. Additionally, as their best customer, we bring them volume. For those reasons, we expect outstanding service and most-favored-nation pricing, which we pass along to our clients. That’s how we keep your costs down while ensuring premium services.

Our portfolio of providers include an academic stack that improves social functionality, enables digital proctoring, manages video and other content, detects plagiarism, and more. While our systems were developed to support online and hybrid students, they can be deployed to improve on-campus programs, both degree and non-degree, as well. Students and instructors are supported by a 24/7 team when something goes wrong.

When it comes to the Noodle-built Core (for data normalization and storage), CRM (for prioritizing and tracking outreach), and Manage (for crystalizing program performance and organizing workflows) we’re spending $10M per year improving our platforms and keeping pace with new technologies and our universities’ evolving needs.

And Then We RunWith the Data

With the data gathered from our integrated technologies we deliver easy-to-read analytics that allow for informed decision-making and support in marketing, recruitment, academics and student life. These analytics are shared through our Noodle Manage platform.

We use data proactively to assess our expected enrollment for the coming term and determine our likely cost of recruiting a student from each marketing channel. We support students and faculty by looking for risk factors and help find clinical placements for students in nursing, teaching, social work and other degree programs requiring a practicum. This requires moving from passive dashboards to systems that alert counselors to a problem and allow your most experienced administrators to suggest quick next steps.

Doing it  Together

Great technology can allow you to enhance the educational experience of all students, both online and on-the-ground. We designed our systems to facilitate a world in which students move seamlessly between online and​ o​n-campus ​learning environments while staying in one cohesive technology environment and set of pedagogical tools.

Likewise, we can make your team more agile. As you move your infrastructure to the cloud, your on-campus team IT team can focus on certain functions or hours, and use us as thought-partners or to add capacity and provide true 24/7 support.

As technology providers compete fiercely, one-upping each other to improve their offerings, Noodle will separate the signal from the noise and make you the beneficiary of this competitive ecosystem.
