Not only does Advantage Universal offer you several unique benefits to make your online orientation process seamless, but it also comes with several features that enhance not only the student experience but also yours, the creator!

Securely Hosted

You can rest assured that all data is securely hosted. Your technical data will be protected by firewalls, vulnerability scanning, patch management, logging and monitoring, and more.

ADA Compliant

Your orientation will be produced under full ADA Compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.1 Level AA. This means that your content will be made easily accessible to those with disabilities that may impair them otherwise. When it comes to visual content, you’ll have fully operable closed-captioning available so those with hearing impairments can complete your orientation with ease.

Gamified Content

Advantage Universal isn’t just an informational orientation. Your students will be continuously engaged with what they’re learning through fully gamified content! After all, why click through blocks of text when you can have fun and learn instead?


Your school has a lot to offer students. Chances are that different students will take a particular interest in different topics as they move through each section. Your orientation will feature interactive content that allows each student to mark which topics they wish to learn more about. Once they’ve completed their orientation, they’ll have compiled a page of fully personalized content waiting for them at the end!

Dynamic Style Options

The Advantage Orientation Universal offers multiple dynamic style options to choose from. The template selected will be customized with your school colors, logo, and full-color images by your very own designated design team. Style options include image galleries, multiple videos, video size options, and interactive design elements available for content editors (even those with no prior IT experience) to easily implement.


Using our vast variety of slide layout options for content, you can customize each of your orientation slides to fit your students' needs. You can add your very own images of your students, add content to fit your students’ needs as you go, and more!

Navigation Delay Lock-Down Timer

Ever wonder what happens if your students aren’t really completing their orientation? After all, as they click through, each section will be reported as “complete.” Luckily, Advantage Universal features a navigation delay lock-down timer that stops students from clicking through sections before they’ve fully read and digested the content.


You might be wondering, why choose the Advantage Orientation® Universal? The Advantage Orientation® Universal comes with several benefits that set it apart from any alternative options on the market. Select each of the following benefits to learn more about each!
