Unibuddy Live Events are a way to attract, reassure and retain your prospective students by opening up a live channel to answer any questions prospects may have.
These Live Events also give you the ability to display content to allow prospective students to learn more about your institution. You can utilize it at any point in the recruitment cycle.
It can provide an alternative to large-scale campus events to connect with students from different regions, thus expanding your reach online compared to an offline model. This feature is a complement to your digital offering and engagement facility.
Prospects will sign up in the same way as the University Widget, and you will have access to all the usual data points.
This enables scheduled live feeds or 1-2-1 direct message chats between Admins, Student & Staff Ambassadors, and prospects. You can create these live feeds by category to organize the live event and control which Student & Staff Ambassadors have access.
Along with the individual live feeds, participants can also direct message Student & Staff Ambassadors that have been designated by an Admin.
This allows you to display content from your screen to share with your event participants. It also includes video capability to allow users to see you over a webcam whilst you present.
💡 Live events are most effective when they are segmented and in smaller groups. It might be a good idea to split your event into several more targeted events - such as by nation or by subject matter.
