Huddle Up recently finished a test of our MVP with Western Carolina University!
We want to give a big shout-out to Western Carolina and Professor Yue Hillon. Professor Hillon recently finished a collaborative experience with her 26 students from her Intro to Management course using Huddle Up.
The goal of the course was for students, working in teams, to develop a branding proposal for a local coffee shop, City Lights Cafe. Some teams used Huddle Up to collaborate, develop, and share solutions with one another - a fantastic real-world application of learning.
Huddle Up is a platform focused on feedback, we're grateful to Professor Hillon for taking the time recently to talk with us and share her feedback about Huddle Up's alpha release.
Some of our collective takeaways include:
- "Huddle Up was a more fun way to learn!"
- With so much interaction happening between participants, Huddle Up needs to develop a clearer method of notifying users of all the messages and scoring. (Noted !)
- The power of Huddle Up is that "it makes the learning so much more meaningful."
(And, our personal favorite)
- "The students who used Huddle Up versus those that didn’t had way better results and were much more organized.”
We are so grateful to Professor Hillon for her time and congratulate her on some great real-world learning. Her feedback helps us improve as well.
We'll continue to build out our site in the weeks ahead to ensure that we deliver an innovative model of solution-focused collaboration to the growing list of organizations interested in using Huddle Up. (More on that in a later post.)
You will also notice that last week we launched our beta site with an entirely new look and new features - most notably our entire site is now mobile-friendly. Our collaboration with Western Carolina University represented our last use of the old platform.
Our new platform is ready to roll, and we're excited to see what we can build, together.
