Hosted by Terrapinn in collaboration with Nelnet International
The way in which education is delivered and managed is rapidly changing. The change is being driven by technology, innovation, and the current climate. Schools are embracing new technologies to better meet the needs and expectations of parents and to deliver an overall better experience for students, teachers, and staff. Families are expecting to send their kids to smart schools with the ability to easily interact and access information. They are digitally savvy and demand a secure high-quality experience.
Likewise, today's students are much different than any other generation. Technology comes naturally to them. They are tech-savvy and grow up in a high-tech, hyper-connected, on-demand, and fast-moving culture. They expect to use technology for all their needs. Approximately 80% rely on technology for communication, social engagement and to transact business.
It is thus imperative for schools and universities to understand the needs of their customers and integrate their requirements and expectations into the family and student experience and business processes. The FACTS Student Information System (SIS) helps schools meet the needs of its families and staff. FACTS SIS automates the seamless flow of information between school administration, teachers, and families.
The best practices include how to:
• Provide for a better experience for students, families, teachers, and staff
• Use technology to address family’s main priorities of measuring and monitoring their student’s progress.
• Create a platform which can be integrated into all schools (K-12), tertiary (including pre-tertiary) and university systems that will scale to meet future demand and requirements
• Make it easier for students to make payments online for tuition, fees, housing, events, merchandise and more.
• Improve the reconciliation and reporting.
