Education Cloud

The term ‘student’ has revolutionized in recent years. This change results from continuous technological advancements, changing economic statuses, and fast-shifting work environments.

In their effort to adjust to this change, educational institutions have turned towards Salesforce Education Cloud, and to great success. Salesforce is one of the best Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software available today and recently it introduced Education Cloud. This was its second step toward improving the learning experience for students, post the launch of the Higher Education Pack (HEDA) in 2016.

What is Salesforce Education Cloud?

Salesforce Education Cloud, also known as Salesforce for Higher Education makes up a collection of objects and solutions that simplify complex processes for students, teachers and institutions alike.

It lets the users manage all their data from one place by efficiently integrating distinct elements on the Salesforce platform. This opens the path for learners to get an increased personalisation of student experiences & more opportunities for the future, strengthening the teacher’s support.

Education Cloud is not only helpful for the students but equally supports the institutions. It provides a 360-degree view of the student and other institutional data which empowers the staff to visualize different students and their academic journey, including their daily activities. With enough information in hand, the staff can focus more on providing a next-level student experience.

Let’s review a few of the best features of Salesforce Education Cloud that make it so effective and successful.
