  • Live Student Counselling – This is an instant messaging tool for students to connect to readily available well-being counsellors who will provide counselling services. From a listing of counsellors, students can chat through live messaging with a counsellor or leave a message to a preferred counsellor who may be offline at the time.
  • Student Forums – This is a student community where they can get help with SRHR issues, academic issues, advice from peers or just have a good chat about what’s on their minds. Students can contribute to the forum through comments, sharing and reactions.
  • Quick Notifications – This feature allows the administration to send news messages/notifications directly to the students. All students will be able to view notifications from their dashboards.
