Focussing on a different area of EdTech, AdmitHub provides an easily accessible source of expert advice about US college applications – in the form of a friendly online chatbot!
AdmitHub’s mission is to provide all students with free, expert guidance along the path from highschool, to and through college. Through SMS text and integration with Facebook Messenger, AdmitHub’s chatbot Oli, mixes artificial intelligence with human guidance coaches from individual schools.
Once a student’s goals are assessed, they have 24/7 access to a personal ‘virtual campus guide’ to help them through application and enrolment processes and embodying each school’s’ ‘unique spirit’ and personality.
AdmitHub are currently ahead of the game and applicable to US students only, but the rise of chatbot tech means we should soon start seeing many more innovative bots within the education sector.
