Nottingham University Business School use Tyfy to speed up and supplement their ‘Buddy Scheme’.
During our ‘Trial Semester’, we have been able to work out problems such as student engagement, and better learn how to improve Tyfy.
“For a school the size of the Business School, Tyfy is an excellent potential mechanism for our students, enabling them to contact each other for the purposes of buddying and mentoring. We had an initial pilot this year which we are hoping to expand for next year. Along with this we are looking at ways to include contact for LCF reps, possible forums and book sales. James is great to work with and is able to look at things from a student’s view to allow us to create a platform that will work to improve the communications within the student groups and between the school and the students.”
