The vast majority of students (88%) say it’s easier to Google information about schools rather than visiting the school’s actual website. Sad, no? As someone who has helped build and update school websites, this is not a surprising stat. Despite the competition from MOOCs and other online learning options, schools still need to invest in having a better website. Why? The following infographic spells out more than 20 different things to know about how students use school websites.
If you did know most of this info, how does your school’s website stack up? If you didn’t know this info, will you start building better school websites or perhaps at least bring up the possibility at the next staff meeting? It’ll be very interesting to see how much schools invest in improving their own website … and which schools do so.
Judging by this infographic, students are in desperate need of some revamped websites as soon as possible.
