It seems just a fact of life now, but online course booking systems have certainly revolutionised the way we book courses for literally any subject. New technology and innovations in software mean it is now possible for anyone to book courses online from the comfort of their sofa! Like booking holidays online, its so easy now for people to find courses they want to do, that popping along to your local college and sifting through the brochure in person is becoming a thing of the past. In fact, if you are not offering online course booking to your students, now would be the time to investigate how to do it.
Of course, one of the biggest plus points of online course booking management - for the tutor - is that the course information is available 24/7 for students to check, so it does limit those late night phone calls from people wanting advice.
Online booking is particularly good for those who are offering courses to students around the world, with different time zones, but lets face it - any reduction in the workload - whilst not cutting corners in quality - is welcome for busy tutors. All the information about the courses can be easily displayed, so students can browse, and book, email queries if they need to, without hanging on the phone waiting for someone to answer or get back to you.
The biggest advantage of online course booking management systems is that they are so easy to use and can take just a few minutes for tutors to add, edit or remove courses, for students to choose and book, or offer full information at a glance, in an easy to read format, even in different languages for foreign students. Students can browse through the courses, find what they are interested in and click "Book Now" button, to enter their details, and pay, if required. From then on, the course booking management system makes it all so easy for tutors, with automatic acknowledgements, enrolment lists populated, all data saved, and a notification pops up in the tutor’s inbox.
If you have never thought of using an online course booking management system, why not ask us for a demonstration? We can chat by Zoom or Skype, or pop in to our offices in Eastbourne.
There are many other opportunities to provide more information about the actual courses, via the online course booking management systems, by adding all the information, course details, and even adding reviews from those who have taken the courses so that other people know what to expect. The course schedule will show exactly when it is being offered, what’s on the list and check the FAQ sections for the common queries, so tutors don’t have to keep answering the phone.
We were in at the very early days of booking system creation, and as a result, Worldwide Webdesign have become one of the industry experts in the field. Our designers and software creators can come up with a booking system to suit your needs, however large or involved your courses, your subjects, your tutor numbers or your course materials needs to be.
Book for an online demonstration of our superb and well-tried and tested course management systems, on Zoom, Skype, or if you are in Sussex, pop along to our offices in Eastbourne. We will be happy to show you all the aspects of our booking systems and explain how they can be used to save you time and money. If you happen to have a website already, and would like some advice or a refresh, we also design websites, and will be happy to give you a very competitive quote for your booking system and website together, if you would like one.
