The University of Colorado Colorado Springs is using readabout.me from readMedia to publicize student achievements both in and out of the classroom. Students will receive recognition when they are named to an academic or leadership position, join a team, volunteer in the community, study abroad, make the dean’s list, earn a scholarship, and many more.
This allows students to get credit for their achievements and activities, and creates an online profile at readabout.me that they can use for jobs, internships, and references after graduation. Students can also share their accolades with their friends and family to generate more interest and involvement in the opportunities UCCS offers.
Why is readabout.me important for students?
