Glide Apps Template: Helping Educational Institutes Go Online


Educational institutes of all kinds need a simple means to announce information about their online class schedule, courses, teachers, etc. This handy application template built using Glide Apps and a simple Google Sheets document will help launch one such platform within hours if not minutes.



Introduction


Schools, after-school programs, extra-curricular classes, playschools for kids, coaching institutes, etc. are a few types of educational institutes that have been hit hard by the pandemic. These institutes have had to jump on the online learning bandwagon overnight. Some of these institutes were already conducting some form of online education. But a majority did not anticipate such a drastic change in the way they conducted their business.



Problem


For most educational institutes, this change in how they conduct business has come as a surprise. As a result, rewiring business processes and setting up systems to suit the new normal could eat into precious business time. To make this transition easier, these institutes can adopt readily available templates to transform for their business processes.

One such area for improvement is the ability to publish information about online classes, courses, trainers easily with everyone.
