How to Digitize the Admissions Process with an Online Platform
The schools have started shifting all the administrative and learning activities online nowadays. EdTech companies are constantly creating software and tools that accommodate a variety of needs of the schools. Most of the schools, however, do not have even a basic website. So, if students desire to get information regarding anything, they have to visit the schools for that. The Covid has changed such scenarios in a positive way and schools have now started recognizing the value. Though, we all know that creating a website used to be such a tiring job. But, Edneed is providing tools that will help institutes to start their online journey within a matter of a few minutes.
Apart from the website, the schools also need school management software in order to keep running the management and academic activities smoothly. The demand for this software has increased to cope with pandemic situations. After changing the modes of learning, educational institutions are now searching for online platforms that will help them to digitize the admission process. Let’s dive into the options available in the market:
How does a Website help in the Admission Process?
A website is the face of an institute on the internet. Nowadays, it is the first contact that people have with your institute. The school’s website design must not only be beautiful but should also provide a good user experience to teachers, students, and parents. The first thing users notice when they visit your website is the look of it. This includes the layout, colors, images, and overall appearance. It plays an important role in making a good first impression. Enhancing the institution’s image and reputation on the website can contribute to increased admissions. The process of making a website is considered to be time-consuming and money-consuming. However, Edneed can configure your educational institute’s website within two minutes and that too without weighing your pocket.
One thing that must be considered while building a website is that it must be compatible with all devices. The reason for it is that the majority of users will be viewing the school website using their mobile devices, including teachers, parents, and students. A website built using the Edneed platform will be adaptable to all the available devices. For a site created with Edneed, you do not need much technical knowledge. Also, our website builder allows the admin to make changes to the website at any given time. Admin can simply log in to their dashboard and make changes in the announcement section. And, update any information regarding admissions or new vacancies. So, when parents start looking to enroll their children, the website of your school can help them get the necessary information and ease up the admission process.
Such factors do help schools with websites in getting an increased number of admissions as the relevant information has already been provided. However, for digitizing the admission process completely, schools also need management software that would help in enrolling the students.
School Management Software
A wide range of administrative & non-administrative tasks such as online admissions, online payment processing, examination management, assessments, timetable planning, teaching-learning, etc can be streamlined with the help of school management software. Despite there being a variety of software companies available in the market, not every software meets your needs. Edneed, however, is tailored in such a way that not only streamlines all the learning activities but also helps in easing up the admission process.
As the students got admitted to your school with the help of your school’s website, it’s time to enroll them in your system. One thing that you will agree on with us is that keeping records in the register is an old-school thing now. Technology should be a time-saver, and it takes a lot of time and effort to add a student to the system when you use complex management software. In order to tackle any such issue, we at Edneed made our school management software much more user and device friendly. We have blogs, written on the topic of adding the students to the software step by step, you can check it from here: How to Add Your Students to the Edneed LMS
As the children play an important role in enhancing the reputation of a school, in the same way, a website plays a vital role in improving the online image of a school. A website, however, makes admission a smooth process. Because one does not need to physically visit the school and can simply download and submit the form on the website itself. Also, using school management software makes adding the students to the school system a smooth process. With all the processes mentioned above, we can easily digitize the admission process. And Edneed offers two different platforms to complete the admission process.
