Webinar – Building Student Profiles: 3 Steps to Meeting The Demands Of Today’s Students

I’ve been presenting on the topic of student profiles at several education industry events, including the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) 2010 Annual Conference, as well as the New York Association of Proprietary Colleges (APC) Annual Conference. The audiences have shown quite a bit of interest in the topic, as has the trade press. It occurred to me that a number of our blog readers may be interested in the topic, therefore, I’m hosting a webinar next week.

The purpose of the webinar is to help schools embrace the power of student profiles in order to drive increased recruitment and retention. “The Increasing Power of the Student Consumer: Building Student Profiles to Meet The Demands Of Today’s Students” will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2010 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

Colleges are continually evaluating efforts to: recruit the types of students who will be most successful in a program, quickly launch new programs, and tailor offerings and delivery modes. How can colleges successfully meet these challenges in order to attract and retain students in an increasingly consumer-driven market?

I’ll share three critical ways that colleges can best leverage information to meet the demands of today’s students:

1) Deliver education where and when students want it.
2) Monitor student inflection points.
3) Report on student activity from prospect to placement in order to support decisions.

Attendees will gain insight into the process of not only building student profiles, but also effectively using them. Profiles help schools better understand students so you can target the right students for the right programs, as well as support them throughout the education process, making sure that someone who is likely to succeed actually does.
