CollegeWeekLive has announced it has created AlwaysON, a live channel where students and colleges meet online. CollegeWeekLive AlwaysON features weekly expert presentations, unlimited access to colleges, unlimited chat sessions, and online visits organized by both colleges and high school counselors. Speakers such as Dr. Gary Gruber, Harlan Cohen, and Ted Fiske will host monthly webcasts.
CollegeWeekLive offers instant gratification in an AlwaysON world. Colleges can now engage with students actively researching their school and answer admissions questions easily and personally online. Colleges can now build a connection with prospective students at every step of the admissions process via CollegeWeekLive, from initial awareness to evaluation, to application and final enrollment.
With CollegeWeekLive AlwaysON, any of the 20,000 high schools in the CollegeWeekLive Counselor Network may request online visits with colleges that their students have expressed interest in, eliminating the need for onsite visits. Counselors will now be notified of which colleges are available at CollegeWeekLive each week, and if a member college isn't available, counselors can request an online visit.
Likewise, CollegeWeekLive participating colleges can schedule their own online visits with high schools anywhere worldwide, and reach CollegeWeekLive's current audience of 450,000 students in 191 countries while also taking advantage of CollegeWeekLive's established calendar of online admissions events.
