early alert integration with Canvas

Does anyone have suggestions on the different companies that offer early alert type of analytics that can be integrated with Canvas?  I know of Dropout Detective and Instructor Insight from AspirEDU and Lighthouse from BlueCanary, any other suggestions on what to explore?  I see Student Explorer is presenting at InstructureCon, anyone using it?

What are your thoughts and recommendations?

thanks for your help.

Hi Matt,

We are using SmartEval for course evaluations and they have a product called DropGuard that is an early detection system that may be what you are looking for.

Thanks, I haven't heard of this one yet.

You can find the SmartEvals app on the Canvas App Center page in your instance of Canvas Settings > Apps.

I am currently reviewing Dropout Detective, as others have mentioned, under the Admin > Settings > Apps, ASPIREDU

I have emailed to inquire as to whether they charge a flat rate, or if the implementation rate is based on enrollment numbers...‌ — I received your email a few minutes ago and will respond to you directly.  Thank you for your inquiry!
