Education Edge Training

Here is a list of some of the areas where I can help you to get the most out of The Education Edge™ and all related modules:

– Assistance preparing your Education Edge™ or other Student Information System (SIS) data for a data conversion to Blackbaud© Cloud Solution For K12 Schools™, Blackbaud© Education Management For Higher Ed™ or another Student Information System (SIS). Data conversions are unique opportunities to clean up your data, audit the table values in all of your select (pull-down) menus, remove duplicates, eliminate redundancy and ensure that improvements to your system tables and data have been made with special attention given to each relevant area within the new target application. A cleaned up set of data that is tailored to your new system will speed adoption by your users, provide improved reporting from day 1, and will overall make everyone’s life easier!

– System Audit: Identify improvements to data tables, system configuration, business rules, Scheduling setup/configuration, Grading setup/configuration, School/Academic Year structure/configuration and other areas. Identify best-practice based improvements that have been beneficial to similar schools using Education Edge.

– Online Inquiry, Admissions, and Reenrollment Forms: Add new Education Edge™ system fields or Attributes (custom fields) to forms, update “pull-down menu” selections within forms, connect “text” form fields to Education Edge™ system fields, edit layout & styling of forms, make improvements to form language, landing pages, and improvements to general form user experience, connect form elements to (Applicant Track) Checklist Items, create dashboards displaying form activity such as outstanding reenrollment form submissions, create or remove email notifications for school staff upon receipt of new submissions – and much more!
