Abstract

Academic advising plays a pivotal role in students’ academic success and progress. Several advising strategies were proposed and used to achieve satisfactory goals. Supernode topologies are known for their efficient use of resources and can be adopted in the provisioning of academic services to leverage their inherent advantages and improve the provisioning process. In previous work, we have applied the supernode topology in collaborative learning. This paper extends this concept to providing and managing university services, focusing on academic advising services. In a fine-grained version of the supernode-based advising service, experienced and skilled students provide extra advising support to their peers. This is referred to as peer-advising, and it brings several advantages, including increased advised students satisfaction, harnessing advising students’ communication and social skills, and reduced faculty advising time.
