ARLINGTON, Va. (PRWEB) May 14, 2020
In the sudden, forced closure of campuses, College Presidents view student attrition and mental health as their biggest challenges for 2020. Amid the current crisis higher education is facing, Ready Education is ready to be a part of the solution to get schools connected with their students quickly. Ready Lite, empowers institutions to create their new virtual campus in just 3 weeks. It is also currently being offered at over 50% price reduction to support college budget constraints. The solution allows institutions to host virtual orientations, and create an engaging campus community using a campus wall and peer-to-peer communication. The Ready platform enables institutions to keep students engaged via virtual events, clubs & groups, and critical campus services such as mental health. It closes the communication gap by providing real-time data to campus administrators on student behaviour and engagement. Administrators can use this data to identify students at risk and intervene to provide both emotional and academic support in real time. Over 90% of Ready partner institutions rely on the platform to communicate and engage their students during this crisis. Ready Education has become a critical tool for colleges to drive student success in a virtual environment.
“Creating a connected campus experience is core to our mobile-centric Connection Platform. Many of our campus partners have developed their own crisis plans leveraging our technology to help them communicate and disseminate critical updates. Campus partners are already seeing a tremendous level of real-time interactions through the campus wall.“ Gary Fortier, CEO, READY Education
