Pre-Orientation Online Module: The Ultimate Student Empowerment Tool
University of California, Los Angeles
NODA Regional Conference featured our online pre-orientation model as the best online student orientation software.
After experiencing a jam packed, orientation session, new students entering UCLA were overwhelmed and not retaining the information provided. When preparing for the next term, Academic Advisors reported students’ inability to run and read their Degree Audit Report and register for classes on their own.
What if students had a way to prepare for orientation on their own before coming to campus?
Today, UCLA guides students through a pre-orientation online module built on the platform custom designed for them by Advantage Design Group®. Students complete the “Preparing for New Student Orientation” module before attending a live orientation session and, with continued access, more students are successfully preparing for their second term with fewer advising sessions.
This recording features a discussion, demonstration and answers to questions with Jesse Carrasco, Associate Director of New Student & Transition Programs. Learn how UCLA shifted orientation strategy from overwhelming to empowering.
