Event Details

Proactive long-term planning for execution of online events

The COVID-19 outbreak has forced schools to adapt quickly and think creatively to create virtual experiences within academics, admissions, and development. School marketers, administrators, and webmasters have gone above and beyond as they rise to new challenges daily. Now, more than ever is the time to form a proactive, rather than reactive, approach to how we build relationships with and inform our communities. During this unprecedented time, schools worldwide have found the most success when they think strategically and efficiently about their digital campus and efforts. Long-term planning for the successful execution of online events and fundraising, distance learning, virtual admissions, and more, must all address four key areas: purpose, people, platforms, and process.
