Designed with a high-quality artistic ‘look and feel,’ Everspring’s platform empowers faculty to move beyond the classroom to a virtual environment and increase student engagement. Faculty can either collaborate with an instructional designer or take advantage of a sophisticated digital toolkit that enables them to design attractive course pages and add educational games that achieve their outcomes. “Our LMS tools enable faculty to do much more than just add text or video,” says Karen. The solution also provides component-based templates for university instructional designers to enhance custom page creation and improve student experiences.
As a case in point, Karen brings to attention a client interaction, where a major public research university engaged with Everspring to launch nine programs in three years. Their main requirement was consistency across all the courses in the academic program as well as individual freedom for faculty members to tailor the content of their courses.
Everspring worked with the department chair to form a strategy to bring consistency in methodology, navigation, and page nomenclature to the course design. Individual faculty were given the freedom to edit and control the content as per their requirement. In essence, Everspring was able to bring an overall consistency by empowering departments and instructors with design autonomy to achieve their goals.
The ultimate aim of our solution is to create enduring digital education experiences for students and faculty
Everspring’s student platform, on the other hand, is an amalgamation of protocols and has a scalable automated system to manage thousands of students within the university. The platform brings visibility to student behavioral data. At its core, the experience of Everspring’s management team in operating scalable programs on their platform and the ready adoption of new technologies makes them one of the best advisers in the online education field.
With an aim to strengthen the universities’ outreach to the millennials that are always present on online platforms and social networking sites, Everspring extends their team of marketing experts to universities. Everspring’s technology stack includes tools to build and optimize secure, mobile-friendly websites that enable colleges to differentiate their programs across traditional and social media, making course features and university amenities more appealing to students.
For the year ahead, the company is planning to roll out a new dashboard, which will enable the universities to see and configure students’ data. This will give administrators visibility into student behavior across courses and programs and help them identify and intervene with at-risk students.
All things considered, Karen shares the outcome of a valuable survey, “Independent research by one of our university partners found that their online students had a higher level of engagement than their on-campus students and that both felt equally affiliated with the university. We take pride in helping our partners drive superior outcomes.”
