New Innovative Digital Community Enhances the Student Experience at MDC

InScribe leverages the power of community + artificial intelligence to connect individuals to the answers, resources and people they need to succeed.

“We were drawn to InScribe for its innovative mindset, proven track record, and attentive customer service. Its team has so many great ideas, not only to drive deeper student engagement but also to tailor and grow the community as our students’ needs evolve,” said Dr. Gonzalez.

Miami Dade College’s (MDC) School of Science has partnered with InScribe Education (InScribe) to launch an innovative digital community where students can easily find information, access student services, connect with peers, and complete academic work remotely.

InScribe provides a large scale interactive digital space funded through the School of Science’s federal HSI (Hispanic Serving Institution) STEM and Articulation grant. It offers students more opportunities to engage with STEM advisors and classmates and improves the efficiency of managing communications and interactions across this student population.

“We were drawn to InScribe for its innovative mindset, proven track record, and attentive customer service. Its team has so many great ideas, not only to drive deeper student engagement but also to tailor and grow the community as our students’ needs evolve,” said Dr. Teresa Gonzalez, MDC STEM Community of Interest Manager.

Students can access their digital community directly from the School of Science website. All announcements and posts are searchable, so they can quickly and easily find the information they need anytime and anywhere.

“We are thrilled to be working with the team at Miami Dade College to help shape even more personalized and meaningful student experiences," said Katy Kappler, CEO of InScribe. "MDC has set up the community to work in whatever capacity students need -- for some that might mean finding details for an upcoming webinar, for some, it might mean learning more about the transfer process from an advisor, and for others that might mean connecting with a classmate to make the multi-campus experience more intimate. It's all about the students and giving them the tools and support they need to succeed."
