The following text can be copied into your course syllabus to inform your students that you will be using MySuccess throughout the semester:
This course participates in MySuccess, an early warning initiative at the University of Kansas to increase student retention. Throughout the academic term, you will receive a message from MySuccess through your official KU email address. MySuccess operates through Blackboard. Your instructor may communicate about your course performance by triggering a flag to indicate a low test or assignment score or a “kudos” for above average or improved performance. You may set up additional preferences and features by going to your profile tab.
MySuccess has additional features to help you be a successful student at KU. There is a Success Network that lists a directory of KU resources as well as an online appointment scheduler system that allows you to make appointments with your instructor or assigned academic advisor that have activated their calendars to work with MySuccess. For more information about MySuccess, please visit www.mysuccess.ku.edu and click on the Students tab.
