Assignment Buddy: Research Assistant

H3 Solutions
The Assignment Buddy helps you find information from the web and Office 365 inside Word & PowerPoint

Working on a class assignment? Staring at a blank presentation or a partially completed document? You know your teacher has great information on the topic and maybe your fellow students as well. What about key resources on the Internet? You don’t have to lose your train of thought and open many different Windows to search. You don’t have to lose your focus on your work. Stay in the application and let the Assignment Buddy help you out. The Assignment Buddy add in for Microsoft PowerPoint and Word can you help you search for just what you need. It can review what you are reading, or what you have typed. It can bring to you similar information from Wikipedia, Images from Bing* and even the lesson plans and presentations your teacher prepared and your fellow students created.

The Assignment Buddy add-in, built on the H3 Solutions Contextual Intelligence Platform uses a Natural Language Processing engine. This engine returns ranked concepts and terms which are presented to the student to explore. Clicking on a concept or word will give you information from Wikipedia, pictures from Bing Images, and most importantly with the Active Directory integration, a student can log into their Microsoft Office 365 and it will search the files that the student has rights to and bring to them results for that item. Now students don’t have to leave the context of their documents to find relevant information. They can stay focused and complete their assignments with ease and on time.

Assignment Buddy is a fully functional application but only a small sample of what H3 Solutions can deliver with our contextual intelligence platform. We can connect your students and teachers with information on the web, your own vast amount of internal data and processes and more!

Note: This app requires IE 10 or above.

*Bing Images are only supported in Word at this time
