No two schools are alike. One-size-fits-all is dead. Customization is the name of the game. So how can a single platform fit to the special needs and desires you have as an instructor? How can your school stand out from the rest?
The student dashboard is the heart and soul of your online school. It’s the first thing your students will see when logging into your school; It’s the single most important page of your school. Simply put, you need an amazing dashboard that converts visitors to customers.
Here at LearnWorlds we know that every instructor and every school is unique. Our game-changing Pages Builder helps you make your school stand out with a totally custom student dashboard!
Based on detailed feedback we got by collaborating with some of the top online course creators, we prepared the templates you need to make your student dashboard truly your own and make it deliver those course sales.
So here are 5+1 ways to create your unique student dashboard today, all in 3 minutes or less.
1) Customize your main menu
Now you can fully edit your main menu. Replace the icons with your own, remove options that are not relevant for your school, give it a bit of pizzaz! Or even add completely new options that will point to special sections of your site. Do you have an online store? Boom, add a link to it. A webinar? That too.

2) Show an offer that your students can’t ignore
Newsletters remain unopened, coupons remain ignored. Now you can show unbeatable offers that your students cannot miss, right within your student dashboard. Bring your offers center-stage and convert like a champ!
3) Show the action in your school’s community with a “live” zone
Your school’s community is the backbone of your school. All sorts of exciting activity takes place in there and your students should see this and jump onboard the action.
4) Show a welcome/introductory video
Your student dashboard is the perfect place to greet your students. With an intro video you can make them feel welcome, and most importantly, how they can move around and purchase your courses.
5) Add a “live” zone showing fresh news from your school’s daily newspaper
Your DailyNews paper is your nifty little assistant that makes sure that your students have always something fresh and interesting to read when they log back into your school. Now you can bring those news right into the student dashboard, making sure that it looks new every time a student logs in.
5+1) Show testimonials and convince visitors to subscribe
There is no faster way to convince a visitor to convert than the social proof that a positive testimonial conveys (along with a smiling face photo). Are you getting positive feedback from satisfied students? Don’t let those testimonials languish in your Inbox. Bring them in front of your students’ eyeballs with a testimonials zone.
