InScribe connects communities of educators & students to provide highly scalable, context-specific, academic support—when and where students need it most.
Learning is an inherently social activity. The more interaction students have with peers, educators, and other experts, the greater their confidence, comprehension, and likelihood to succeed. Yet for many students such engagement is hard to find. They aren’t sure how to connect, or they’re uncomfortable speaking up. Many times the support they need simply isn’t available when and where they need it.
InScribe works by connecting a program’s students, educators, alumni, and other advisors into communities that cut across traditional classroom boundaries. These communities provide support by answering questions and sharing knowledge and ideas. InScribe captures these valuable interactions and makes them reusable term over term, so each generation of students can benefit from the conversations that came before them.
InScribe communities provide different levels of support to meet each student's preferences and needs.
1 help YOURSELF
InScribe's Knowledge Base and Q&A Repository provide curated, context specific resources to help students answer their own questions - without the need for additional intervention.
2 GET Help from THE community
Students can submit new questions to the support community. The best answers can be promoted to become part of the ongoing, shared knowledge base.
3 ask a scholar
When self help paths are not enough, a student can connect with an available member of the support community directly.
Integrates into your existing curriculum
InScribe isn't trying to replace your curriculum. We provide a toolset that makes your existing content more accessible and meaningful to students. Tagged LTI links within your digital content bring students directly to related resources and conversations to support and enrich their learning.
Leverage and scale your existing educator community
Whether it's multiple instructors teaching different sections, graduate students supporting large courses, or broader groups of coaches and SMEs—you already have great resources working to help students succeed. InScribe gives these individuals the tools they need to operate as a team—providing faster and more efficient support for your student population.
Peer-to-peer benefits students and educators
InScribe allows students to support one another. Students build their reputation by answering questions and can see how their contributions are helping other students. Student contributions can be promoted to become part of the community knowledge base.
InScribe's intelligence enables continuous improvement
After utilizing resources and Q&A, students are encouraged to provide feedback. This means InScribe is getting smarter each day. As it learns, InScribe gets better at connecting students with the information that is most likely to help them.
InScribe also helps educators by identifying students who are struggling—well before they take their first exam. And with InScribe, instructional teams gain visibility into the specific areas of the core curriculum where students keep getting stuck.
Support your students to retain your students
When students get the support they need, when they need it, they are empowered to overcome academic challenges and stay in school. InScribe enables institutions to provide this support in a scalable way, while helping students build the skills, self confidence, and resilience they need for success in college and in life.
