“Effective communication with incoming students is always a challenge. New students, often from different parts of the world, can be overwhelmed with information at a typical orientation. That’s why we were delighted when QWASI provided the opportunity to develop a fun and interactive mission-oriented online interface to welcome and educate our over 100 incoming graduate students. With this platform, student engagement is amongst the highest we’ve ever seen, and we look forward to reusing this QWASI-developed approach in the future.”
