Give your students a safe place

Students are more stressed than ever. Loneliness, depression, and anxiety
are key factors for lack of student engagement and university dropouts.

Differ gives students a safe place to ask stupid questions,
conversations to join, and peer mentors to talk to.

Help your students

Learning something new is hard. Todays students have it more difficult than ever. But a little help goes a long way. Differ creates communities where students feel safe to ask stupid questions, are given a peer mentor and help each other succeed.

Differ is the missing part of the LMS - the one caring about the people, not the content. We have proven massive positive impact on student success only by focusing on starting conversations between people.

"With Differ we have gone from 5% to 85% student participation in less than a month. And our course completion rates are 3 times higher in some courses, which also increases our tuition revenues."
