This is a site by and for educators. The content will come from them.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
Last Friday morning CollegeOnTrack launched its educator Forums in response to suggestions from school clients. Educators, always interested in how colleagues are dealing with common issues, began posting questions and comments right away.
The first post was from a Missouri teacher wanting to change how subject areas appeared within the Student Planner. CollegeOnTrack engineers responded overnight, providing the new capability by the following morning.
“This is a site by and for educators”, said Marketing V.P. Phil Roybal. “The content will come from them. We want to build a vibrant user community around CollegeOnTrack”. The company monitors Forums to answer questions and respond to problems, but will not dictate or censor site content.
CollegeOnTrack has set up sections dedicated to Digital Literacy, College Planning, individual apps, and System Announcements. As the company sees usage develop, it may add more sections to help organize conversations.
Https://forums.collegeontrack.com is open to anyone, but only educators with CollegeOnTrack accounts can initiate conversations or post comments. They will sign on with their CollegeOnTrack ID’s and passwords. The intent is to keep Forums focused on the interests of active users. CollegeOnTrack will contact its educator clients this week to tell them about Forums and encourage sign ups.
