Delivering the course catalogue directly to the students through popular social media outlets such as Facebook, will keep them informed and offer students a favorable way to register
(PRWEB) September 13, 2011
Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today a new feature within Higher Reach by Jenzabar® that allows higher education institutions to create a Facebook Catalogue Application, connecting the continuing education catalogue directly with the school’s Facebook page.
With prospects and students spending more time on social media sites, bringing the online catalogue to Facebook makes it convenient for students to view programs and register for courses. With the entire continuing education catalogue accessible from within the social media platform, the Facebook Catalogue Application allows institutions to leverage the popularity of Facebook and make it easy for students to browse the catalogue, shop for courses, and register for offerings without leaving the social networking site.
“It is not an easy task keeping students and prospects interested and connected to an institution’s webpage. We have developed the Facebook Catalogue Application through Higher Reach to bring the online catalogue where the prospects and students socialize on a daily basis,” said Robert A. Maginn, Chairman and CEO of Jenzabar, Inc. “Delivering the course catalogue directly to the students through popular social media outlets such as Facebook, will keep them informed and offer students a favorable way to register.”
Higher Reach by Jenzabar is a flexible, full-featured, scalable software solution uniquely aligned with the complex needs of any institution that offers continuing education, certificate, or workforce development programs. Higher Reach supports the entire continuing education ecosystem, from prospective students and candidates all the way through graduation.
