Why are only 36% of students at public universities earning BAs in 4 years? A new ebook reveals students’ top three graduation blockers and demonstrates how 220+ institutions are using course sharing to overcome roadblocks to student progress and completion.
Quottly, provider of the largest and most comprehensive course sharing platform in higher education, has released a new ebook that unpacks the major obstacles students face in achieving on-time completion and reveals how leaders in higher education are using course sharing to build better pathways to graduation. Capturing insights from the 220+ colleges and universities that deploy the Quottly Platform, the ebook provides case studies and best practices for systems, consortia, and individual institutions seeking to access the transformative capabilities of course sharing.
Based on Quottly’s 2022 survey of more than 2,000 current college students and recent college graduates, The Definitive Guide to Course Sharing for Higher Education addresses the existential challenges that now confront higher education. According to surveyed students, their top three roadblocks to timely completion are:
- Course availability – Lack of access to courses needed to complete degree requirements
- Transfer issues – Lost credits due to complex transfer processes and incomplete course equivalency information
- Degree pathway – Lack of student-facing pathways to help plan and monitor progress to completion
“Facing ongoing drops in enrollment and completion, institutions urgently need to increase equity and access, create new pathways to completion, and solve transfer challenges, ” said Alicia Policinski, CEO and Co-Founder of Quottly. “Our new ebook shares compelling insights from our experience working with institutions that serve more than 2.9 million students and demonstrates how higher ed leaders are using course sharing to overcome roadblocks to student progress and completion.”
Quottly’s ebook examines how institutions are integrating course sharing solutions to:
- Expand equity and access to underserved students
- Optimize course capacity and fill empty seats
- Ensure seamless and efficient credit transfers
- Support the creation of new programs without adding instructional cost
- Streamline administrative procedures and registration processes

The Definitive Guide to Course Sharing for Higher Education features case studies from the Idaho State Board of Education and the Montana University System.
