Likelihood to Recommend

ACTIVE Education

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Infinite Campus

Good for generating progress reports and tracking when we have to report date at meetings and to 'higher ups' and also to send the progress reports to the parents and as part of student's IEPs; hard to find where to put your data, and then hard to find it with so many classes listed in only one drop-down menu. I really feel this could be done better/easier for us to utilize and find what we want faster and more efficient. That is why I only gave it a rating of 8.

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.

Infinite Campus

  • Infinite Campus sends out notifications timely without the delay that other systems sometimes encounter. This is important for students and when the end of semester deadlines loom.
  • Infinite Campus is user-friendly from both the administrative side to the end-user side. It's intuitive and well documented.

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.

  • Between the monthly updates, there are MANY more RX packs that can be used for updating. These mainly consist of fixes to state reporting issues. Sometimes a district could update weekly or more often to keep up.
  • The user interface is gradually being converted to the same look on all pages. Instead of this type of change, an all-at-once approach would have been preferred.
  • Many times, a feature will be available for free and then later removed and charged as an add on. Users who get used to this functionality are then forced to no longer use it or request that the district pay even MORE money to have that feature available.

I haven't reached out to Infinite Campus for technical support. We have in-school people who are trained to help us out in the event of a problem. We have had a couple of times where the system has gone down unexpectedly, but our school IT professionals were able to sort it out.

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.

Infinite Campus has more features that were needed for our district, like the ability to use a standards-based grading system, and attach students' IEPs directly to their profile. They grading system would have been hard to write on Skyward because they don't have the capability to house that many standards. Also, having the students' IEPs on their profile allows the teacher to reference it as often as they'd like.

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.

Infinite Campus

  • Positive impact: Allows us to keep our pacing guides up to date for weekly meetings and information dissemination.
  • Positive impact: Allows us to provide our counselors, students, and parents with informative progress reports in a timely manner.
  • Negative impact: Takes more time away from our other duties when it takes so long to find the data/information I'm looking for amongst all the classes I need to go through just to get to the one I need. They really should look at a better way to arrange/group the drop down menu for the classes.
