Organizes Her Campus Life

Samantha recently transferred from a community college to her state's university and is now juggling online classes, a part-time internship and various other campus activities.

Samantha needs to stay connected with study groups, follow campus events and communicate quickly with her professors and classmates. She uses her university's iQ Platform to manage her academic lifestyle, which allows her to join groups, direct message classmates and access blog posts published by professors.

Connects with Her Classmates

Once registered, Samantha quickly finds her away around the university's iQ Platform and creates an online profile which includes some biographical information, links to her other social network profiles and some photos that reflect her personality.

She finds her current classes in the course directory and adds them to her network, and then sends connection requests to a few classmates she has met on campus.

Soon, Samantha must complete her first online assignment to stay on schedule with her microeconomics course. She is struggling with the assignment and needs help.

She posts a question to her online class. Based on the topic, the system makes recommendations to topic experts in her network. She connects with Carla, who is an expert in economics and they schedule a videoconference to discuss the assignment.

Discovers a Study Group

The system also recommends that Samantha participate in a private online study group. She sends a join request to the group owner and within an hour is welcomed into the group.

Through this study group Samantha learns of a weekly online study session, and several members share study guides with her through direct messaging. She's also invited to an upcoming hiking trip being organized by group members.
