DENVER, April 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TopSchool and Career College Central are hosting an upcoming webinar where they will help institutions put data to work throughout the student lifecycle. "Moving Beyond the SIS – Making Data Actionable" will take place on Thursday, April 26th at 11:00 a.m. MDT. Click here to register.
"While a stand-alone Student Information System (SIS) is good at capturing information, the use of that data is what will ultimately improve the educational experience schools deliver," said Matthew Schnittman, CEO and co-founder of TopSchool. "It is important that schools be proactive with data – it can be very dynamic in the way it impacts student recruitment, student retention and career placement. This is where the SIS ends and student lifecycle management begins."
Schnittman will guide attendees through the process of capturing the right data throughout the entire student lifecycle and then making that information actionable. Participants will learn how to push data out to users in order to influence their interactions, as well as track KPIs to measure institutional and student success.
