That is exactly the common denominator of the graduates. They all want to offer their fellow students or future students a helping hand. "I never encountered any obstacles during my studies," says Sharon Hoogdorp. "But I've talked to students a lot, including when I was a student assistant, and it turns out that a lot of them need fairly simple information. Information that the college may think is easy to find. But often it isn't. For an example: how do I create a case for the examination board? It would be nice if that kind of information can also be found in My RUAS. That is why I really recommend students to use My RUAS. I am sure that it promotes their study success."
Not only numbers, schedules and progress play a role. For example, Ashley focuses on the social aspect of My RUAS. She is working on a prototype of a community that makes it easy for students to get in touch with each other. "I mainly focus on the first 100 days of first year students. During that period they not only get to know their education, but they also make friends. The latter is not a matter of course for everyone. That is why I build a community in which contacts can be made. For example, by creating an event on your timeline that others can join. Students who have more difficulty with this generally drop out sooner. This is why I want to help that target group by making social contact easier and provide a safety net."
