Two organizations have joined forces to answer important questions related to how search, discovery and recommendation online are affecting student college choices. PossibilityU, an innovative college guidance platform, and GroupLens, a research lab dedicated to recommender systems and online communities in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, announced a research partnership to explore how college recommendations online can effect a broad range of student outcomes.
For the past 3 years, PossibilityU’s unique college guidance program has been matching high school students across the country with colleges that match their talents, aspirations and family budgets. The program features guided inquiry, data visualizations and personalized, Netflix-like recommendations—all designed to give students confidence in their choices. PossibilityU also features a blended-learning video curriculum created to help students and parents become better consumers of higher education.
