FRANKFORT, Ky. – InScribe, which delivers digital community solutions, today announced a partnership with Kentucky State University (KSU) to create more opportunities for students to engage and access information online. More than 2,000 students at this public historically black university now have a simple way to connect with the answers, resources, and people they need to succeed in college and beyond.
“Providing students with easy to navigate, timely information and guidance is an essential part of student success,” said Dr. M. Christopher Brown II, president of KSU. “InScribe gives our students a network of support that they can rely on and it enhances our ability to communicate and interact with them. Students can meet others with similar stories, work together academically, and obtain the information they need to carry them through their educational journey.”
InScribe expands the walls of the digital classroom, integrating into the places that students already go — the school website, portal, and LMS. KSU students now have a centralized place to turn when they need help or just want to connect with classmates, faculty, and other school experts. KSU’s new digital communities give students a voice, empowering them to contribute in a meaningful way while also connecting anytime, anywhere.
Information gathered in the community forms a living knowledge repository that is always growing and stays aligned with the topics that students really care about. Future students can search the community, putting a wealth of advice, content, and solutions at their fingertips. At the same time, InScribe helps KSU faculty and staff communicate more effectively and saves them time by removing the need to answer the same questions over and over again.
“It’s critical that students are able to connect and establish a sense of belonging with their peers and their institution,” said Katy Kappler, InScribe co-founder and CEO.
