‘Mentoring as a Service’ (MaaS) is a pro-active monitoring and mentoring educational system, designed to support learning. MaaS is a holistic platform for live tutoring, providing real-time learning and interaction between the student and tutor. MaaS is designed to improve student retention and graduation rates through its pro-active and supportive platform, guiding the student through to graduation.
MaaS uses a sophisticated Artificial Intelligence engine that offers a complete solution for the needs of students and colleges. MaaS has proven its success, even with severely disadvantaged students.
What does MaaS do?
- Predicts a student’s future academic performance and behavior
- Provides the platform to modify a student’s behavior
- Generates tutor alerts based on a student’s activity/non-activity and performance
- Enables the tutor to communicate with the student in real-time

“Strive Software International’ Mentoring-as-a-Service (MaaS) software package and technical support is an unbeatable combination for any educational institution, especially for higher and distance education providers. The ability to tailor-make proactive monitoring solutions for student performance is the only authentic solution for mitigating the numbers of students-at-risk, as opposed to the traditional re-active approaches/plans. We have seen dramatic increases in student participation rates, which leaves us without any doubt that our students are developing much more positive study behaviours and attitudes due to MaaS.”
