Why Use Amesite? Part 2
June 11, 2021

When it comes to online learning, it’s important for colleges to have courses that can adapt to our technology-driven world. That’s why our mission at Amesite is to improve the way the world learns, catering to different types of learners while also giving them classes that are transferable. Our courses use AI to give students and instructors an exceptional online learning experience. But why should you use Amesite? Here are 6 reasons. 

1. Our platform is engaging and retains users so they complete courses and programs. 

Amesite's system uses established social media formats to help learners access content in a familiar setting. These mechanisms streamline the learning process. Amesite's platform also gives users the experience of learning with a community, a valuable addition to the online education experience. Engaging features like video chat and live streaming connect instructors and other students virtually to enhance and solidify learning. Our powerful AI and analytics also provide an enhanced learning experience. Amesite has an outstanding and industry-leading 98% retention rate. 

2. We get our partners online – building impact and revenue for them. 

Using our online platform, Amesite customers reaches wider, broader audiences. Students are online these days, of course, so our partners are able meet students where they are, and find the online classes they need. There’s also the opportunity to use social media for commentary—and social media is something that many young adults love and for reviews, which are beneficial to those seeking online education.  

Online education is scalable, adaptable, and resilient. During the pandemic, when most universities saw steep declines in enrollment, universities with 90% of their students online saw a 7.1% increase in enrollment [1]. With Amesite you can offer resilient and in-demand online courses easily and quickly.  

3. With Amesite, you can leverage your reputation and brand to grow. 

Our partners have built strong brands and relationships with their alumni. And, regionality matters. What works in a manufacturing-heavy region may not work in an infotech region. With Amesite, you can offer what makes sense, and what works best for your own alumni! 

Additionally, our platform makes adding multiple types of courses, and therefore revenue streams, easy! In today’s market where personalization and value are key to attract students, it is important to offer multiple types of courses to benefit the largest audience.  

At Amesite, we make it simple to provide a multitude of offerings like:  

  • Alumni learning courses to tap into the booming lifelong alumni learning market 
  • Online summer camps for high schoolers to introduce them to your university and drive enrollment 
  • In-depth micro-courses on in-demand topics, like Artificial Intelligence or industrial automation, which offer certifications to meet the needs of the busy professional looking to upskill 
  • A robust traditional online curriculum that enables students to take classes from anywhere and removes traditional location barriers, expanding the pool of potential tuition-paying students exponentially  

4. We use AI to help students connect their learning with the real world. 

It can be frustrating for students when it’s difficult to see the application of the material they’re learning in the real world. That’s why Amesite classes use artificial intelligence (AI) to help users match what they’re learning to what they’re living. We want students to be able to have a customized experience where they can see their life in what they’re learning. 

5. Amesite’s AI helps instructors. 

The benefits of Amesite’s AI don’t just stop at the students. The instructors too can gain from it. Our automated platform allows faculty to issue reminders via cloud-based email and SMS messages. Communication is easy, and the instructors can spend less time sending the necessary reminders or messages to students and instead focus on teaching. 

Amesite also has auto-grading algorithms and designs, so instructors don’t have to spend as much time on tedious grading and correcting. AI can help them so they can, once again, spend more time focusing on teaching and less time focusing on the “administrative” side of things. 

6. Amesite’s partners never need new infrastructure or training to use our solution. 

Perhaps the biggest reason to go with Amesite is that we offer unmatched ease of use and scaling – with no infrastructure or enterprise training to get going. Our system is meant to work with you, and it’s made so that it can be scaled. We want to make it as easy as possible for our partners to start to use Amesite courses. There’s no messy overhaul of what you already have in place. And best of all, IT folks love us, because we make it easy for users to get in, and get learning.
