Here’s what Avondale students are asking:

  • “This has to be a report structure, can you see if this reads ok?”
  • “Does my conclusion make sense?”
  • “I’m making two very different arguments here, can you give any feedback?”
  • “I’m getting the wrong answer for x, but my working looks ok, can we chat through it?”

Avondale University provides Studiosity to our students. You can access your account using the link below, or from the Studiosity banner within your Moodle units. See for latest FAQ, including help provided, how to use, and information about the online Specialists.
