Our relationship with the Institute for International Education started with a mobile-first site for their IIEPeer program. We created a platform that not only offered displaced and refugee students a clearinghouse of scholarship and educational opportunities, but also offered institutions a medium for reaching out to these affected populations. And we designed for low-bandwidth users, ensuring that the site would be accessible to the audience who needed it most.
Expanding the experience with chatbots.
As the site gained popularity, a new need arose to help guide students through the multitude of scholarships available. Enter: Mina. A virtual assistant we built to ease in the search process through artificial intelligence and a custom Q&A algorithm.
