Summary

The Online Collaboration Platform for Academic Support and Student Services

Details

Extend the reach of campus support

When students need help but are unable to visit campus, Pisces empowers your institution to provide online solutions. From instructor office hours and group projects to tutoring and peer study sessions, Pisces supports distance education best practices and accreditation requirements to provide regular and effective contact and comparable student services.

Best-in-class web conferencing tools designed for education

Alongside traditional web conferencing tools such as audio, video, drawing canvas/ shapes, and screen sharing, Pisces includes academic collaboration enhancements that enable learners to communicate ideas and solutions in an intuitive and thoughtful way. Discipline-specific buttons, breakout room recordings, and personalized student referrals are examples of how Pisces helps take academic support online.

Seamless student experience in synchronous and asynchronous modes

With a variety of modes that use the same toolsets, institutions have flexibility to design online programs that work seamlessly for their students. Live modes include scheduled and drop-in options for one-on-one (e.g. tutoring, office hours advising, counseling) and one-to-many (e.g. synchronous classrooms, workshops supplemental instruction) meetings. One-on-one meetings are private and automatically queue in drop-in students. Session recordings are available in the student’s locker. Live peer study groups are also available. Asynchronous modes include options for students to drop off a quick question or an entire written assignment to receive feedback later.
