Being a data-driven continuing education program is important, thus the need to collect and analyze data is a must. The latest trend in continuing education software tools is to include a dashboard with real-time data updates. This may include graphical representations showing the current status of registrations, revenue, best performing classes or clients, and so on.
The dashboards should have functionality so they can be set up to support different staffing levels, such as executive, course programmers, salespeople, and others. The best dashboards are easy to read, single-page, and have a real-time user interface. They are also able to show historical trends of a continuing education program’s key performance indicators to enable immediate and informed decision making.
