The hub of your American Honors experience
We developed Quad with social interaction in mind. As the hub of your American Honors experience, Quad enables you to work with your instructors, honors advisor and peers in real time, on an ongoing basis. It’s the kind of connectivity and involvement you won’t find anywhere else –in the classroom or on another platform.
It’s an innovative social learning platform where you’ll have the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with your instructors , to check in regularly with your honors advisor and interact with your peers to work on projects – or simply to socialize.
Quad integrates your entire academic life, and will help you get ready for every day, providing easy access to syllabi, assignments, course materials, notes, grades, deadlines, tools, your e-portfolio, transfer plans and more. Just a few of the features include:
- Social chat stream
- Study groups
- Digital whiteboard
- Content sharing
- Lecture capture and re-watch
- Unified calendar with deadlines and reminders
Lively virtual classes
While many of your honors classes will be on campus, at certain schools, you'll have the opportunity to participate in other classes using live video conferencing system. At scheduled times, you’ll join a virtual classroom, which feels very much like having a front-row seat in a small seminar where everyone participates in the exchange of ideas. (And you’ll see the faces of other students – not the back of their heads.) You’ll have the flexibility to join class from home, campus – or wherever else suits you.
Easy transfer planning
While planning to transfer to a four-year college can be daunting, Quad provides an easy, organized format to help you plan, track and assess your progress in relation to course credits and requirements. And of course, your advisor will work with you every step of the way.
