The first product, Bb Planner, is a mobile app that allows students to explore degrees and careers that mesh with their goals and interests. Eventually the same app will also enable them to pivot in their degree choices when they realize they're heading in the wrong direction, help them figure out how far along they are in achieving a degree in a new major and even let them sign up for their next course with a single phone tap.
