It is said that major world events often make a way for discoveries and innovations. This time, a pandemic altered how the education sector across the globe functioned for years. As schools shifted online owing to the ongoing crisis, teachers embraced various digital platforms for undisrupted learning.
Ever since the pandemic broke, nothing has been the same. Globally, more than 1.2 billion children got out of their comfortable conventional class rooms making way for the new wave in education- Online Learning. A dramatic upheaval in the education sector, virtual classes initially were thought to be an interim relief but in the absence of a reliable vaccine, online/virtual learning will stay longer than expected.
Having said that, shifting classes online has been a nightmare for schools not just in India but globally. Before the lockdown, executing multiple tasks related to students, teachers and, management was easy where attendance was a shout away, managing assignments took a couple of sheets, and conducting exams just needed an invigilator. But ever since social-distancing became a routine and physical proximity a luxury, managing nuanced tasks concerning students became exhausting and complex.
Reinforcing positive behavior and communication between educators, students, parents, and administrators also got difficult!
As global education made an online shift, it brought a lot of errors and uncertainty for everyone with it. Transforming school systems with high technology-enabled automation tools that fully supports the academic and administrative processes remained the only way out for schools. The demand to improve operational efficiency; to succeed in everyday tasks of schools and to modernise the education system with cloud, mobile, and digital technologies soared.
Student management systems have been addressing challenges posed by schools long before this pandemic broke loose. These management systems efficiently manage the minutest detail of every student in a highly organised way. From students' enrolment to dealing with day-to-day inquiries, tracking their progress, sending reminders, and notifications, the student management system did revolutionalise the education space. It has been beneficial in channelising the faculty’s workload and staying focussed on students learning and work towards continuous improvement.
