Employer projects (posted as challenges online) are becoming increasingly popular because they offer students the opportunity to apply their skills to industry needs. Virtual projects help students understand the applications of their major to industry needs and they also demonstrate students’ value to employers.

 Given that 270 SCU students are already using Mindsumo, we have invited a Mindsumo representative to share how virtual consulting projects can complement and enhance learning and skill building in the classroom.  Mindsumo allows students to apply skills developed in the classroom to employer-sponsored projects for many disciplines. Students compete for prizes and employer recognition, including opportunities to interview. Take away ideas for how you might integrate relevant projects for the classroom in meaningful ways.
