Have you seen our latest features?

 

We’ve been adding new, easy-to-use features to the KeynectUp platform this summer. Our latest is Well-Check Texting. With well-check texting, safety for study abroad students is improved immensely.

 

How?

 

Say you’re the head of a university’s study abroad department working out of the US office. You have a group of 35 faculty-led students studying in London for the semester. It’s 7pm and you’re watching the evening news at home; suddenly, an emergency alert flashes across the screen. News breaks that an act of terrorism has occurred in Piccadilly Circus.

What do you do next? How can you ensure your students are safe?

 

With KeynectUp well-check texting, your next step only takes seconds. You pull out your phone and send one quick text to a group of your students’ international phone numbers. The text reads, “Please respond ASAP and let me know if you are safe.” You immediately sign in to your KeynectUp account and watch the student responses roll in. By 7:30pm, 32 students have responded. You send your on-site faculty to track down those remaining three students.

 

In less than an hour, you can report back to campus that 91% of your students in London are accounted for, and those remaining three students are being sought out.

 

 

 

 

Responses are easy to navigate; green dots signify a student response, while a red dot signifies no response and a need for action.

 

Group messaging can also be used to locate lost students.
