If there was one class that you could be a part of and that would be very beneficial and worthwhile to you, what class would that be?
Would you join a class to help yourself become a better task-master and meet more productivity goals? Would you seek to learn a new technical skill? Or, would you join a course that could help you better deal with a bad habit that is hampering your growth? Whatever the course may be, the idea to take away is this--education provides access.
Teachers, instructors, and administrators--how well are you providing access to potential students who want to enhance their knowledge by learning a new skill or want to learn methods to help them overcome a challenge?
Access involves making the knowledge available and providing a pathway to obtaining it. There are many ways to do this; however, an efficient way to connect with students and provide them with access to your course is to offer online class scheduling. By using class booking software, you’ll allow potential students to easily click a link and sign up for your course offerings or book a class directly on your website - and since you're providing your course information online through either of these methods, this can help increase your attendance.
Here’s how you could boost attendance through online class scheduling:
1. Make it easy for students to sign up online via smartphone, tablet, computer, and etc.
Today's youth are well-acquainted with technology and use it for a myriad of solutions. At the click of a link via their smartphones, tablets, or computers, you can allow students to register for your classes through your school's website or even your own website via an embedded scheduler or link. You can also provide a description, show meeting times, and office hours sessions to give them the extra help that they may need.
2. Show students the number of seats available
Students won't have to call or email to find out if there are seats available for a class. They can see this directly through your scheduler, and even once a class is full, you can allow interested students to join a wait list. If a seat becomes available, you can invite them to join the course.
3. Tell students more about yourself as an instructor!
I don't know about anyone else, but for me, if I know a little bit more about my instructor, it gives me an idea of how they are and what they're interested in. I'm sure many of you have signed up for classes without getting a description about the instructor, but with our class booking software, as an instructor, you can tell students about your interests, how you teach, test, and so on.
Providing students with access to knowledge can be done efficiently through online class scheduling. With many young individuals using technology in a variety of ways today, don’t pass up this opportunity to increase attendance for your sessions. All they will need is a link to your scheduling website or access to an embedded scheduler, and they’ll be well on their way to reaching their goals.
