Purdue Taps Cloud-Based Collaboration Software for Experiential Learning

To streamline the process of connecting students with interdisciplinary hands-on projects, Purdue University's Krannert School of Management recently rolled out cloud-based software from EduSourced in its campuswide Purdue Student Consulting (PSC) organization. The collaborative platform is designed specifically for experiential or action learning programs; by serving as a cloud-based repository for all project activity as well as a communication tool, EduSourced will help students from management, engineering, science and technology find opportunities to work with corporate clients and gain real-world experience.

"Attracting students and forming teams across campus has been very time-consuming and resource-intensive in the past," said Matthew Lynall, director of the Krannert School's Experiential Learning Initiative, in a press release. "EduSourced's software platform is going to help us greatly in managing the logistics of a campuswide program, connecting students, sponsors and projects. We anticipate rolling the system out across all our experiential learning programs once PSC is up and running."
