No external apps are required, access stays within your LMS. This means students are more likely to feel confident and engage in peer help seeking.
Training is held to your support standards, while you give Peer Mentors the choice to increase their peer support work when and where they choose.
Whether voice, chat, or drawing, students choose the modes that make them feel most comfortable - to get them through their ENG105 or NUR102 or uni life query faster.
Mentors and students are paired based on your criteria. This means paid workload to Mentors is also fairly distributed, so everyone gets a fair chance for work experience and professional development without bias.
“Students come to university to learn and succeed, and we know that student success is enabled when learners are supported, inspired, and feel that they belong to the university community.
"At-scale, online, peer-to-peer support is different from on-demand, course-content assistance. When seamlessly integrated with an institution’s other peer programs, it facilitates conversations and community building between students who might be missing out on these critical social and academic connections otherwise, whether due to full-time work, long commute times, family commitments, and/or their online study mode. The fact is, universities already deliver many opportunities for peer-to-peer collaborative learning for an enhanced student experience."
