Event Background

Eckerd used all the tools in their Conduit toolbelt to put on a successful virtual event by leveraging PlatformQ Education’s software, strategy and services. By communicating with their strategy team they connected faculty with prospective students who are interested in Marine Sciences.

The Results

Eckerd College saw over 300 unique visitors to their Marine Science presentation. They even saw an additional 30 attendees who logged in after the event to view presentations on-demand around their schedule. During the live event, students had the ability to ask questions in real time. Event attendees had an average of 6 activities while on the Conduit platform, showing strong engagement with the presentations, chats, and other Eckerd College resources that are tracked on the site. 

Eckerd College faculty gave overwhelmingly positive feedback for both the Marine Science program and the Conduit platform as a whole. Having faculty on board for live events makes the institution stand out to students, parents and counselors eager to learn more about the educational opportunities at Eckerd. Due to this success, they plan to run a follow up event later this spring.
