Engaging & Effective Student Onboarding Made Easy

Engaging & Effective Student Onboarding Made Easy

How do colleges and universities put their best virtual face forward to recruit and enroll students?

Advantage Orientation® is an online orientation platform provided exclusively by Advantage Design Group®. This fully customizable and cloud-based solution is welcoming, introducing and preparing millions of new students and their families for college success at over 270 institutions in three countries. Institutions range from large public community colleges and universities to small, private schools.

Dedicated to The Experience

Unlike other web-based options, Advantage Orientation® is uniquely designed to deliver an end-to-end onboarding experience. Students engage in guided, self-paced, media-rich, and interactive content. “The system is intentionally designed to be completely accessible on any device, available any time throughout a student’s college career,” said Catherine Swingle, Founder. The platform is mobile responsive and ADA compliant.

It’s about Time

Instead of relying on an assortment of emails, website pages, text messages, learning management systems, social channels or virtual tours, administrators are delivering essential orientation information in a fun, engaging and cohesive way. Students explore their new college home over time without being overwhelmed and just-in-time to reinforce early enrollment decisions. At the same time, administrators can monitor and analyze student participation in real time.

What Students Expect

Today’s audiences demand creative media within an intuitive interface on any device. Students want answers and expect to be treated like individuals. Many super users in the Advantage Orientation® community report previous attempts at building an orientation as a course in a learning management system. With Advantage Orientation®, they can now personalize content, deploy content over time and provide relevant content tracks to unique student populations. Student survey responses point to a greater sense of preparedness to transition to college with confidence, fulfilling another touch point in the enrollment process.
