Cappex Launches Virtual Events Platform to Help Higher Ed Institutions Engage with College-Bound Students
Last Updated: November 14, 2013
CappexConnect™ provides a way for students to experience colleges and universities from their home or school no matter where they live.
Cappex.com, announced today that its new virtual events platform, CappexConnect, is now available to higher ed institutions to help them meet enrollment challenges. The CappexConnect platform allows schools to connect live online with prospective and admitted students. Through the platform, institutions can augment their on-campus engagement and build relationships with students at home or school in their hometowns across the country.
“We know that open houses help colleges and universities convert inquiries to applicants and also have a significant impact on yield, though many students simply do not attend them because of distance, travel costs, and busy schedules,” said Tammy Willis, general manager of CappexConnect. “With CappexConnect Virtual Open Houses, schools can now extend the reach and impact of their campus open houses to students no matter where they live.”
On CappexConnect, students can develop richer impressions of campuses than they can through other online means via live video presentations from faculty members, alumni, and current students. There’s also the opportunity for students to ask questions and get immediate answers through video chat, text-based chat and email.
CappexConnect will also be holding several virtual college fairs for students, parents and high school counselors later in the year focused on college planning, financial aid and scholarships.
