Students are the building blocks that give shape and strength to the nation's progressive future. We have seen in the past that any great revolution; whether it is the Indian revolution or the Russian revolution, all were convinced by the young, ignited and educated minds. It is unfortunate that many educational institutes do not consider students as humans; they consider them as machines that need to be programmed in a certain manner. Their approach is never Student-centric. Therefore, it is high time to make the system friendlier towards the student by adopting various technological inventions like Campus management Software.
ERP is a comprehensive system that integrates all the departments of the educational institute. It ensures powerful deliverance of knowledge as well as helps the educational institute to have a better system of administration. With its unique characteristics, educational ERP provide an excellent learning system for the students that define new meaning of learning for them.
Most of us believe that learning means text-books; nothing beyond the boundaries of text-books is seen as a means of education. We forget that healthy and intelligent discussions can also become a means to learn new things. Campus management software acknowledges this notion, thus it offers an interactive platform to the students which is very much similar to the social networking sites.
Educational ERP provides a discussion forum for the students which they can use for interaction with their teachers, peers and even the alumnus. They can share their opinions on any topic; be it any query in the class or on any current topic. This will help to them improve their communication skills as they will learn to put forth their views. Apart from this, their knowledge quotient increases as a result of exchange of views from experienced people like teachers and alumni. Thus, pupils can develop their independent thinking which can help them to face future challenges.
Campus management software is a computerized system that prepares an online database for books and other library collection. The students can view this from their desktops even if they are at home. It provides an easy access to the library materials. It gets difficult to find any particular book from an aisle full of different books. As this software divides the collection into different categories, it become easy for a student to search and find the book within a few minutes.
Educational ERP makes the database visible and accessible to the student, thus they can learn about any new arrival, availability of the material, etc easily.
Ailments or accidents can never be predicated; sometimes it happens that the students cannot appear for some important exams like the final term exams conducted by the universities that decides his future course. They are forced to take a drop and wait for one whole year. However, with Campus management software, the teachers can publish an online test for such students. Without any space and time constraints the students can appear for these exams.
Disparities in communication can create lot of problems for the students as well as for the educational institutes. Educational ERP ensures smooth flow of any important information, as it integrates all the departments. Thus, any new information regarding the school calendar, holidays, homework and assignments can be uploaded on the site. There would be no miscommunication at any level.
Many of us misplace important documents; this happens with all of us at some point of time. This creates problem for us at a later stage, when we are asked to produce these documents. In the same manner, even the students, at times, find themselves in problems when they lose their fees receipt or examination hall ticket. With Campus management software the students can get a customized fees invoice and hall tickets. Moreover, the students can also store a soft copy on their desktops for future references.
Cynics worldwide have left no stones unturned to criticize technology. But, most of them fail to see how helpful it has been to us in every minor aspect of our lives. Educational ERP presents an example before us, as how it has made our educational system "Student friendly".
