In our survey, 87% of instructors noted decreased student engagement compared to the year before the COIVD-19 pandemic. 92% of student clubs and organizations observed an increase in disengagement among their members. Nearly every student reported difficulty in meeting new people and "often felt lonely."
76% of the students believe Zoom breakout rooms and tools like Canvas discussion boards have NEVER helped them make meaningful connections.
They want their university to "adopt a better platform" to facilitate connecting students with each other.
Simply think of a tag for your class/club. Then ask students to visit this platform and make a quick profile. They will be asked to select that they want to make a New Friend and add Identifiers to their profile. Here, ask them to add your tag. That's it!
Once students create their profile, Magic will connect them with a few students each day who have lots of similar interests as them. If you have a small class/group, don't worry! We will keep recommending them new students, so they can feel connected.
