The advent of COVID lockdowns and the move to online education set many higher education institutions into a frenzy of reassessing the onboarding process for incoming students. We take this opportunity to share our experiences in providing a facilitated online orientation program at AIB, the home of the largest Australian online MBA.

The focus must be on the student experience and their integration into the educational institution to ensure satisfaction, engagement, and persistence.
