What You Can Do With CapsimInbox: Student Success

Expose students to challenging situations before they happen.

Many students enter college unfamiliar and and unprepared for the challenges that lie ahead. CapsimInbox simulates a familiar email environment — immersing students in real-life scenarios and situations they’d typically face in their first year.

Assess the critical skills linked to academic success and student retention.
