1. Why “Mobile-friendly” Class Registration Websites Matter

    The term “mobile-friendly” seems simple and sounds intuitive, yet it’s often confused. In this article, we discuss what it means for a website to be “mobile-friendly,” and why it’s important for your course registration website to be designed with mobile devices in mind.

    Mobile-Friendly Websites are Easier to Use

    If you have a smartphone, you’ve probably visited a website that forced you to zoom in on text to read it, or scroll up-and-down or left-to-right to find information. These websites simply shrink the desktop version of their site so that pages completely fit within the container of the smaller screen. Websites that look this way are NOT mobile friendly; they aren’t easy to use from a smartphone or tablet. Instead, they force the user to work hard to find what he or she needs, often causing frustration or abandonment.Read more

  7. New exporting features make reports even easier

    I hope you’re having a great start to your semester!  As the leaves change, we at CourseStorm are also always on the move.  Today, I’m excited to tell you about some new features that just became available this week.  This update is all about exports and reporting!

    We’ve heard from quite a few programs that they’d love to see more ways to export just the data they want.  Previously, we had depended a lot on our site export feature for much of this data.  Today, however, we’re announcing lots of new ways to get right to the data you’re looking for.
