Every spring, approximately 2.5 million students are admitted to college in the US. By September, approximately fourteen percent of those — 350,000 students — who intend to enroll fail to matriculate. Students who “melt” over the summer or dropout disproportionately come from underserved communities, which frequently lack the supportive resources to help students navigate challenging financial, academic, and social situations. AdmitHub’s AI chatbots help colleges scale personalized text-based advising with a vast audience. Through a series of automated reminders, tips, and tutorials these virtual advisors guide each student on a personalized path to successfully enrolling in college.

The Triple E Framework, developed in 2011 by Professor Kolb, is an assessment tool that K-12 educators use to measure how effectively a lesson integrates technology to positively impact student learning goals. The Triple E Framework is informed by decades of valid research which provided guidelines on effective and ineffective practices for technology tools to elicit learning growth in students. The TripleEPLN developed in 2017, is a social networking tool supporting K-12 educators to evaluate their lesson plans with the Triple E Framework and collaborate with other teachers on designing lessons to integrate technology informed by research.
