onCourse in Action

Eco Logic.

Byron Community College has the best sustainable growing courses in the country.

The problem

Developed more than a decade ago, Byron Community College’s website and student management Developed more than two decades ago, Byron Community College’s website and student management system ​w​as functional but hard​ to​ use, ranked low on Google and presented the college as tired and outdated. Business processes were dictated by the system limitations and not always efficient. Byron wanted a modern site with excellent support for mobile devices where students would have a positive enrolment experience.

With a large range of courses, excellent search and browsing capabilities were important. And to convert website views into sales, courses needed to be presented with a rich range of images, video and copy.

Business processes were dictated by the system limitations and not always efficient.

The solution

onCourse delivered new program management and scheduling features to the Byron admin team. Staff had the opportunity to reimagine what best practice process might be.

On site training from our VET and Community College expert allowed the Byron team to get running effectively in onCourse within a few weeks.

In the first instance the existing site design was carried across, reducing the transition effort of rebranding and marketing changes at the same time. They have since used one of our template sites and adapted it to the Bryon Community College branding and navigation needs on more than one occasion.

Byron Community College are always looking for ways to improve their branding and processes and we’re there with them every step of the way.

The result

Administration overhead was reduced allowing the existing team to increase work on new business generation. The website ranks highly in native Google search results and inspires new students to access courses. The college continues to grow and is successful financially and in educational outcomes.
