Allows students and instructors to view current classes, past classes and current schedules
Jenzabar, a provider of software for higher education, has released version 3.0 of its non-traditional system, Jenzabar NTS, an internet-based administrative system developed to meet the complex needs of colleges and universities offering continuing education courses, workforce development programs, and certificate programs.
According to the company, Jenzabar NTS 3.0 offers expanded self-service capabilities for both students and instructors to view current classes, past classes, and current schedules. Instructors will have improved ability to assign final grades online, and view and e-mail section rosters. Better flexibility within the upgraded product will allow institutions to communicate enrollment and payment related messages at opportune times through automatic e-mail notifications. Administrative departments will also be able to accommodate a wider range of faculty and institutional practices with an expanded set of bill payment options.
Jenzabar has said that new features have been introduced to enable institutions to better support the needs of corporations. Group registration, bulk purchasing, opt-in waitlisting, deferred payments, and third-party order and payment functionality is available to school administrators using the web- based shopping cart within the upgraded Jenzabar NTS interface. In addition, extended financial analysis capabilities will let institutions calculate gross margin percentages and break-even enrollments.
Robert Maginn, Jr., chairman and CEO of Jenzabar, said: Jenzabar NTS has been upgraded to offer institutions the best administrative support services and self-service options to attract, retain, and manage non-traditional students. This new product release will help our client institutions build better communities for continuing higher education students, provide technological capabilities that are key to serving adult learners and other non-traditional students, and give schools crucial data to measure their performance and ensure continuous program improvement.
