  7. 8. Eliminating Course Catalogues??? <ul><li>“ I know of no college CE unit doing that. Many discuss it, but nationally, there is a sense that CE students still want something they can hold in their hands. I truly think that we will begin to see that change over time, though.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ We flirt with the idea but are scared to totally rely on other venues for marketing. Please let me know what your responses are. Very curious.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ We are using both paper and online versions. Not everyone is tech-savvy yet so paper is still a good option for us as a marketing tool” </li></ul>
  8. 9. Eliminating Course Catalogues??? <ul><li>“ We circulate our catalogue in the Sunday newspaper (people have come to look forward to receiving it in their Sunday paper) and we continue to print our catalogue because we’ve done market research that proves that people like hard copies because they like to flip through and circle or highlight what they want to do and put it on their coffee table or something and return to it whenever they want.” (Australia) </li></ul><ul><li>“ We have reduced our catalogue printing to 20,000 three times a year and mail out 15,000 three times a year. This represents a huge reduction (we used to print and mail out 120,000 catalogs). In all honesty, we have not seen a huge impact on enrollment.” </li></ul>
  9. 10. Eliminating Course Catalogues??? <ul><li>Our large catalogue is entirely available online (we no longer print paper versions) although each semester has a special brochure with course listing and locations. Students still need to go online to view course descriptions etc.” </li></ul><ul><li> “ I’ve been here 11 years now and the course catalogue was eliminated three years before me. Bottom line is we haven’t missed it at all and we got rid of a significant cost item and a terrible burden on the admin folks to get it out the door. </li></ul><ul><li> “ Hunter College/CUNY eliminated a paper catalog about 5 years ago.” </li></ul>
