Most of us have heard the warnings. Artificial intelligence or “AI” is here and is expected to rapidly impact the ways in which we live and work. Every industry and organization ranging from healthcare, entertainment, business and of course, education seems to be talking about AI.
Artificial intelligence continues to reshape our expectations for service and support. Traditional college students and adult learners alike have found a seamless support experience when working with major retailers and in the consumer market in general.
Most higher ed institutions are just weeks away from wrapping up their first semester and bracing for what many health experts are referring to as “the dark winter.” While an estimated 40 million Covid-19 vaccines will be ready for distribution shortly, the surge in new cases promises to only worsen in the weeks ahead.
Ivy.ai announces free app to help colleges and universities return to campus
On Thursday, Ivy.ai announced #CampusClear, a free self-screen app designed to help colleges and universities return to campus safely in the fall. The app, which prompts all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to complete a once-daily single-question survey, provides users with a FastPass for accessing campus, and returns real-time insights to campus administrators.
New Changes to Brain Scan from Ivy.ai
We're excited to announce several significant updates to Brain Scan, a search utility included with every Ivy.ai Chatbot that helps identify and update outdated information in your Chatbot's brain. Our hope is that with these updates, it will be easier than ever for administrators to ensure that their Chatbot's knowledge is always up-to-date.
We Asked Student Employees How Our Chatbot Would Have Benefited Them - Here's What They Said.
Higher Education exists to shape the minds of learners, but in many ways, the learners shape the industry. We see this all the time when institutions add new programs to accommodate aspiring professionals, or when colleges begin offering online degrees to appeal to students who value remote learning. As schools prepare for the looming enrollment cliff, it's especially important that they examine ways to improve the student experience at scale. Educators must ask what it is that students desire, which processes can be improved, and how they can combine those elements to build something better.
SMS Texting from Ivy.ai Helps Uncover Student Intentions
Forecasting: it's essential to every business, and that includes institutions in the business of educating students. From enrollment to event management, a clearer picture of your students' intentions helps to facilitate better planning. One such example is front-and-center in the wake of COVID-19 closures and contingency plans. Will prospective students still attend in the Fall? What if the campus remains closed, and the classroom settings remain online? Do students value the flexibility, or is the on-campus experience simply too important?

How an AI Chatbot from Ivy.ai Aids Operational Continuity in Times of Crisis
Ivy.ai offers schools a free COVID-19 Chatbot and human-to-human Live Chat platform
As schools work to combat the spread of COVID-19, many have decided to cease in-person operations. For some institutions, that means spending a few weeks away from campus, while others have elected to shift the remainder of their Spring semester to online learning. These varied decisions all have far-reaching implications, and raise a lot of important questions for students.
When will school re-open?
I'm an international student, do I have to go home?
If I paid my housing deposit, am I eligible for a refund?

Schools can get started in under 10 minutes, and the system includes a COVID-19 Chatbot, a human-to-human Live Chat platform, and SMS Texting.
