Well, thankfully, built into CourseStorm is a great way to help you cancel less classes, automatically!
How to cancel less classesThere's a tried and true method used by great programs to cancel less classes: make sure everyone knows when a class is in danger of cancellation. And it makes sense -- no one is interested in seeing a class cancel, so the more people who know it's a possibility, the more people you have working to make sure it doesn't happen.
But, the trick is, it's super time consuming for you and your team to stay on top of this. Thankfully, CourseStorm will handle all the dirty work for you!
As you might expect, the entire process is automatic. Every day, CourseStorm checks out your enrollments and identifies classes less than a week out that have yet to reach their minimum enrollment. It then goes down this list and sends out notifications to each class's greatest evangelists -- the instructor running the class and students who've already signed up for it!
How does it work?
The notifications let each party know that the class needs just a few more people to meet minimum enrollment and gives a couple of tips for how to spread the word to those who might be interested.
At the same time, CourseStorm will send you and your team an email as well, giving you the heads-up with some recommended ways to further promote the class.
The result? You've now got a group of the most excited people working together to keep this class from canceling and you didn't have to lift a finger!
