Temple now offers one-stop shopping for non-credit and continuing education courses
With an aim to improve student services and create business efficiencies, Temple University partnered with Destiny Solutions to implement a university-wide software solution for non-credit and continuing education students and programs.
“Previously, there was no centralized repository holding past and present non-credit student and program data at Temple,” said Nicole Westrick, Associate Vice Provost – University College at Philadelphia-based Temple University. “By partnering with Destiny Solutions we now have that repository, making it easier and quicker to respond to student inquiries, and providing our students, faculty, and support staff with a consistent and structured access to the information they need across the institution.”
Temple University offers over 100 non-credit programs through over 50 administrative offices. Destiny One allows Temple’s staff to streamline non-credit programming and to scale processes through one standardized infrastructure. Furthermore, students can now browse, enroll in, and pay for courses offered by the university quickly from any location and on any device.
“Destiny One has eliminated many lengthy manual processes, thereby making our staff more efficient and productive while providing integration points with our existing backend computing infrastructure,” Westrick said. “Despite its breadth, it’s a user-friendly platform, and it allows us to easily create a unique look and feel for each of our program websites, and enhance our relationships with students and staff.”
Temple also uses Destiny One’s Conference Manager, allowing the school to build branded registration sites for conferences and customized schedules, and provide attendees with group pay options.
“Temple University serves its students exceptionally well through a wealth of continuing education and non-credit courses,” said Shaul Kuper, President and CEO, Destiny Solutions. “By implementing the Destiny One platform, Temple has established the infrastructure it needs to accelerate business growth and engage more effectively with learners.”
