Q: What orientation models will be possible with online orientation software?
A: Orientation options include in-person only, online only (good for online education or international students), or use a hybrid model with an online pre-orientation before the in-person session to enhance the social benefits of face-to-face sessions. Many schools with an orientation-as-process philosophy have created additional modules for other department needs such as Title IX VAWA/SaVE, Probation, HR, Financial Aid, etc.
Q: My IT Department is very busy. How much do they need to be involved?
A: Comevo’s solution is perfect for schools with busy IT Departments. Comevo hosts, maintains and supports the software platform which takes a lot of weight off of an IT Department. IT will need to be involved in the beginning to setup Portal Integration and SIS interface but after that, it’s all on us.
