ACTIVE Education

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Middle Schools and High Schools have a great use for this, as students need to abide by a certain track of classes and credits in order to graduate. The software really helps to control student progress. Degree or graduation progress reports help to assure that all students are given the opportunity to track their own academic progress. Sharing this information directly with students or advisors and parents guarantees higher graduation rates.Recruiting is an interesting scenario when looking at using this relationship management software. CampusNexus offers strategies for marketing and reaching new students. Evaluating those interested students in a timely fashion also saves time and money for the university. It is an all-encompassing software that handles the student experience from the first day of enrolment until graduation.

Pros

ACTIVE Education

  • Separation of payer and the person attending the activity. For example: children incur charges, but the parent is responsible for paying them.
  • Fast - in our old system there was a delay while customers waited for the system to respond.

Cons

ACTIVE Education

  • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
  • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
  • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

  • The interface screams 1995.
  • Due to the robustness of the program, it can be a little overwhelming.
  • A how-to, or help-videos would be a nice addition.

Alternatives Considered

ACTIVE Education

ACTIVE Network allowed: grouping of classes, good interface, allowed importing of records, complex payment plans, per class fee structures, user fees, and trial classes.

I have not come across other platforms that can do what CampusNexus provides. There are platforms such as Skedula for tracking grades. There are add-ins to websites such as MoodleRooms to provide curriculum and content management support. However, I have not found a platform that provides grades, curriculum, key functions for enrollment and tracking your own academic progress as well as analytical abilities. CampusNexus provides the output of data and results from a wide range of data sets. Tracking the data and being able to output it into charts and graphics for all educators, administration, and politicians can improve the culture of a school district. Providing all of this data can transform an entire educational institution.

Return on Investment

ACTIVE Education

  • Not sure yet.
  • It is newer to me and my department.
  • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.

  • Enhanced integrity of data
  • Allowed paring away of costly 3rd party integrations
  • Instability of the native application built on forms builde/share point has hurt student satisfaction at times
  • Student portal is not student friendly and does not serve a modern student well
  • Active directory integration is buggy and has caused frustrations with staff and students
