Many of the nation’s colleges and universities have some kind of non-credit arm. This could be in the form of satellite campus offerings, community college offerings or even continuing education courses within a four year university. There’s no need for enrollment into these types of courses, classes and seminars to have to go through the same hoops as credit course enrollment.
Entrinsik is a data and business intelligence company that has an amazing data analytics tool called Informer. Informer allows users to take multiple data sets from different sources and puts them into an easy to navigate workspace where they can be linked, shared, viewed, visualized, manipulated and otherwise worked on in an easy to understand manner. Several education institutions are using Entrinsik’s Informer 5 for data analytics and business intelligence on campus.
Their other product, Enrole, takes the headache out of non-credit course enrollment. Registrars at continuing education institutions are raving about how easy it is to set up online enrollment for students. Enrole makes it easy for a registrars office to quickly create an online enrollment site that’s as easy to navigate and use as Amazon.
Entrinsik’s Simone McGrath says that students can check out in as little as five clicks. Enrole also means that students can enroll in their classes anytime day or night and even on holidays. On the school’s side a comprehensive interface for staff provides clear information with easy to navigate hyperlinks to all of the registration data needs in one dashboard view. An easy step by step wizard makes adding new courses to Enrole, a breeze. There’s also a copy function that makes it easy to copy course information from one offering to another.
On the student side, a simple search mechanism makes it easy for students to find the classes that they want. After they set up a quick easy student profile, selecting classes is like online shopping. After a student compiles all the classes they want to take they just check out and voila, they are enrolled.
Enrole is perfect for:
- Continuing education
- student seminars
- professional development
- community outreach
- children’s programs
- certificate programs
- workforce development
