Our Webinar Provider Is Changing, Our Values Are Not

Friday - August 3, 2018

It’s official: The Study Abroad Portal is upgrading its service!

For the past seven years, The Study Abroad Portal has been the leading service worldwide in delivering high-quality Online Open Days to students looking for their dream study abroad programme. We are proud to say that we have been at the inception of countless dreams achieved through the power of online webinars. However, as any company, we believe we can always improve upon our current offering in order to deliver a better service to everyone involved in the process.

Therefore, this month we are making the move onto a more adapted platform for what we do, and are proud to announce that all of our Online Open Days from now on will be broadcasted exclusively through our new partner: ON24.


Why did this happen?

Mainly, this change is happening because of you! We at the Study Abroad Portal always highly value the feedback from our audience, whether it happens in online surveys, Facebook polls, or during the Online Open Days Q&As. Over the years, both students and universities and given us lots of very helpful tips on how to move past some of the obstacles we have had to face. Furthermore, we believe that in today’s streaming age, there is nothing more important than staying ahead of the curve, which means always providing the most failproof service for our loyal audience, who deserve nothing but the best. We also understand that as a global service, we have to connect thousands of people from all around the planet onto a single place on a daily basis without sacrificing our character. It is all these reasons that have brought about a much-needed change to the way we run our business, and we are excited to be able to improve your experience for the long-haul through our new broadcasting provider.


How will this be different from before?

The ON24 webinar platform is a state-of-the-art service, and hosts a model that much better suits our need to be as straightforward and efficient as possible. In a few words, this industry-leading webinar platform allows us to stream higher quality, engaging, user-friendly webinars optimized for any platform with an added on-demand service. First of all, students will have a much easier time signing up to Online Open Days through our portal. It is not only the streaming platform that changes, but our whole process. Once you’ve selected the event that interests you, you will simply need to click the “Register” button on the page in order to be taken to the sign-up page on the ON24 portal. Once that is done, you receive an e-mail with your personalised link and are ready to join on the day of the event. Secondly, your experience during the live session is being significantly enhanced. On the day of the webinar, simply log in to the Online Open Day from any device with your personalized link, up to 15 minutes before the start time, and enjoy! That’s it. No more fuss. No more downloads. No more loading time. It’s that easy. You then navigate the immersive user interface and can follow along with the session and ask all the questions you might have about the programme, the university, or even the country where you wish to study. And finally, another important change is that while the session will remain viewable to all registrants after it has taken place, you will also be able to submit questions which the universities will answer to you, even months after the live event has ended!


What happens next?


Now all you need to do is to visit The Study Abroad Portal and sign up to some of our upcoming Online Open Days so you can experience all of these exciting changes for yourself. Once you are signed up to a webinar, don’t forget to forward the event to your friends who might be interested, post about it on social media, or even let your whole classroom know through your Whatsapp group. You might end up changing somebody’s life! Just as importantly, you should remember to always let us know what we can do to improve so that we can keep on bringing these types of forward-thinking changes directly to your browser. Our aim is to bring the highest quality of Online Open Days to you so that you can make the most informed decision about your studies abroad.
