Akademos joins GetSet to to support clients’ admissions departments though COVID-19 challenges
Norwalk, CT (PRUnderground) April 7th, 2020
Akademos has partnered with GetSet Learning to support its partner institutions as they face COVID-19 challenges. The concern of decreasing enrollments is growing among colleges and universities since prospective students are unable to visit campuses and interact with their future communities. With the GetSet Yield Module, Akademos customers will benefit by welcoming admitted students into their online, authentic student community.
“I’ve known Raj as a Higher Ed innovator for almost a decade and we discussed how Akademos clients could leverage social connection tools to ensure success”, said Karan Goel, CEO and Founder of GetSet.
Akademos ultimately purchased the GetSet Yield Module for all its clients and moved quickly to roll out this new benefit for client use. “We’re thrilled at the opportunity to serve Akademos’ clients in ensuring their new admits can quickly get a sense for what their new school will be like and build a great group of connections well before they show up on day one.”
The Yield Module will enable institutions’ admitted students to connect with current students and their future peers without ever leaving home, ultimately increasing effectiveness and yield by building the school’s brand.
“In these unusual times we know that our university clients are concerned about a wide variety of things including attracting new students” said Raj Kaji, CEO of Akademos. “To that end, Akademos has purchased GetSet’s Yield Module, which is usually $14,950 per institution, to improve admissions yields on behalf of all of its clients. While this is atypical from the course materials matters that Akademos focuses on, our clients come first and this is another way we are investing in their success.”
