Knobull Academic Search Engine Team Sees A Better Learning Experience
By: Knobull, Inc.
Our passion is working with students to deliver a cyber-secure world-class academic experience. We love what we do. Our purpose is to simplify and support your life as a student with one stop systems so that you can give attention to learning and efforts that demand your time! We support initiatives to help improve the learning experience for students."
Niche interest groups allow like-minded people to come together and discuss the issues that matter most to them. These platforms are perfect for students to form close ties outside of the classroom. The Knobull site has been designed to further support this connection.
Not all students learn the same way, with many choosing to remain quiet in lectures, taking notes and saving their questions and opinions until they are behind a keyboard. With access to online forums like the Knobull Messageboard, students can continue their learning at their own pace, work together on group projects and swap knowledge with a range of different minds on their course topics.
Bentley continued, "We have set up avenues for current students to chat with alumni on our Messageboard, ask them questions and learn from their success. Educational institutions will be able to demonstrate just how successful their courses and teaching systems are. Mentorship programs have proven to boost student retention rate and keep alumni engaged. Anyone who has graduated and interested in participating in this program, please go to the Knobull.com Contact page to alert us."
Many universities have set about creating their own mobile apps, from personal assistants that help students manage study time and plan schedules, to networking services that connect students with tutors, find roommates and keep updated on college events. An excellent example is the Knobull Messageboard which allows students to showcase their achievements, and connect with others concerning academics. Offering digital channels to assist, inform and engage students will allow educational institutions to make big strides towards creating a better student experience.
Beyond this, colleges and universities should look to create a learning environment that is geared towards entrepreneurship. Soft skills like networking and negotiation gained through career centers, developmental platforms like Knobull or workshops are increasingly important to success in the digital age.
When students start to have doubts about their course or institution, they can feel isolated. They might not see the help available and feel disconnected from anyone who can turn things around. This is a major issue in falling student retention rates. As Knobull gains users, they can definitely remove much of this doubt and feelings of isolation.
