Helping students helps marketing
Students get more bang per educational buck. That could figure into marketing, and alumni loyalty.
Improving student skills resonates with employers. Some donors will like it as well.
Lower cost for students
Some students are upset about rising textbook prices. Cycos can be cheaper. Much cheaper.
That’s a Good Thing.
Engagement with faculty
Students and faculty spend more time together, working on tasks. Students get one-on-one attention from faculty.
Course assessment falls out naturally from the Cyco approach. “Clickable rubric” grading generates assessment data as a matter of course. No extra costs, and less resistance from faculty.
