Navigate Update

With the switch to remote learning, the Navigate Leadership Team is working to ensure we are doing all that we can to support our students and advisors. Below are usage statistics as of the end of February.

In response to COVID-19, EAB has fast-tracked several enhancements to the Navigate Staff platform to help advisors advise remotely. The website has a Quick Start Guide and video walkthroughs available which will continually be updated. Updates will also be shared with each college’s Navigate Specialist Leader to pass on to advisors. 

We are also modifying the student app side of Navigate. The Appointments feature has been turned on in the app, so students are now able to schedule meetings with their advisors who have set availability in the Staff platform. Additionally, we have added a new resource category in the app which links to the COVID-19 FAQ page as well as new links for several offices which have altered their delivery. 

The Navigate Graduate Assistant, Lorraine Kouao, has been hard at work on promoting the app to students. She has been tabling in the Union through the months of January and February as well as managing our Navigate social media pages. She has also created a graphic to promote the Study Buddies feature in the app.  We are hoping students will find this feature especially helpful to find community with their peers in a virtual setting. We are happy to share a PDF of this flyer with any faculty who would like to encourage their students to use study buddies. Please email if you would like information on the app to share with your students.
