Free Website Design For Schools Initiative
In this digital Age, every school needs a website to compete favorably in the ever competitive school business.Have you been wondering how to get a professional website for your school?
Not to worry; solution is here—–An NGO ——Digital and Enterprise Skills Development for Africa Initiative (DESDAI)– is partnering with Bizmarrow Technologies to provide website to 20 schools in Nigeria
Why this initiative?
Corona virus and other things happening in the world have made it compulsory that schools must now have an online presence. In fact schools are now having online classes ( Virtual classroom).
But if you don’t have a website to start with, then it will be so difficult to upgrade to online classes or even keeping parents and guardians informed during pandemics like COVID-19 or other issues. (This can make parents to lose their trust and confidence in your school and take their children to other schools).
SMS or whatsapp message may not contain all you want to say, but directing them to your website for an update is the best and more professional way of communicating to parents who look up to you
School website is very important for making a good first impression as it often is the first contact that people have with the school. Therefore, the school website affects the overall image and reputation of your school which can lead to increased admissions. Having a good school website is also very important for delivering a good user experience for its regular users, including teachers, students and parents.
There are typically two primary purposes for any school website. One is to provide timely, engaging, and current information (like introduction of online classes –virtual classroom– and how to log in and use it) to your current parents, students, staff, and community. The second purpose is to attract new students (through their parents or guardians) and to recruit quality staff. So, that means your school website must both inform your existing customers and market to potential customers. Because those audiences have slightly different needs, it can be tricky. But, there is no fear. DESDAI will not only get you a website, but will mentor you on how to get the best out of it
