College isn’t the only thing on most Strayer students’ plates. Many of them are adult learners who have responsibilities beyond their academic lives. Some juggle coursework with a demanding career, while others balance raising a family with finishing their degrees. Time is not a luxury they possess.
At most educational institutions, students spend an inordinate amount of their time on administrative tasks, such as registering for classes and checking on financial aid status. Strayer wanted to minimize that time so that students could focus on coursework.
Irving, a virtual assistant powered by artificial intelligence and natural language processing, is Strayer’s solution for busy students. Available online or mobile app, the Chabot continually learns by conversing with student, and is able to provide support in real-time, lessening the administrative burden.
