Adult Ed Institution Adopts Student Lifecycle Management
- By Evan Tassistro
In an effort to boost its online services, Contractors State License Services (CSLS), a California firm specializing in adult education for prospective contractors as well as construction professionals, has launched a new portal and information tracking system for improving student management. The school, which is focused on helping students pass the state contractor licensing exam with both online and in-school course offerings, cited the new system's flexibility and scalability as reasons for implementation.
CSLS selected TopSchool's subscription-based Student Lifecycle Management system, which couples an online student access portal with modules for admissions, enrollment, placement, academics, financial, and reporting management across the duration of student participation in the program. System architecture builds upon relational databases with XML data structure for adaptable scaling, and is designed to integrate with Web services and third-party applications.
"Our students demand flexible delivery options and TopSchool's SLM will allow us to better monitor their success across all campuses and programs," said, Susan Ishii, general manager of CSLS. "We also will be able to gain greater insight into student and program results--TopSchool will not only help us centrally manage this data to plan for future expansion, but its scalable system will also support our continual growth."
Contractors State License Services operates 34 school locations in Northern and Southern California, and has served more than 110,000 students who passed the state contractors exam.
