OnCourse helps schools eliminate low-value tasks, giving staff more time to invest in their students' growth.

What could your staff accomplish if they had more time every day?

The average school district wastes thousands of hours annually on paperwork tasks.

Paper processes are the usual suspects, like printed summer packets or discipline incidents written on carbon paper. But digital processes can also be culprits; like using Google Sheets as a makeshift data warehouse or double-entering data across disparate ed-tech tools.

The average school district uses 1,327 different technology tools every month. This is a drag on time and morale that often goes unexamined, but that actively increases burnout and cognitive load on students.

Using an all-in-one platform like OnCourse drastically reduces redundant effort and offers exciting new ways to streamline daily tasks. The OnCourse SIS helps school districts save hundreds of hours every year by digitizing student registration, 504 plans, report cards, parent letters, and lots more.

The biggest time-saver of all: smart software design.

Many software products look similar from the outside, but are surprisingly different once you pop the hood.

Modernity: OnCourse has a disciplined approach to software and database design. Technology debt is methodically managed, with continuous updates that keep OnCourse running on the newest web frameworks, browsers, and security best practices. This ensures a high level of uptime and responsiveness for district users.

Data hygiene: Your data in OnCourse is put through a proprietary data validation engine, which ensures accuracy and speed in your day-to-day work. It ensures that duplicate data is stopped at the door, that state/federal guidelines are being continuously met, and that reporting and data cleanup is as efficient as possible.

Design philosophy: One key to OnCourse staying user-friendly and efficient is what we DON’T do. Where some ed-tech companies grow by acquisition, buying other software products and bolting them together, OnCourse believes that the best user experience comes from a more organic approach to software design.

The OnCourse codebase is built and maintained by OnCourse’s in-house development team; it is not a collection of disparate codebases designed by different companies. We do, however, believe that integration has a role in creating a superior experience for users. OnCourse’s core platform is enhanced by integrations with powerful tools like Google, Kami, and Learnosity.

This thoughtful approach to design creates a better, more efficient experience for all.
