Student Information System – Change is Good!

1 Mar

Hey Guys and Gals,

Hope ye have being enjoying reading my blogs. As ye may know there are many different types of Information Systems. From reading an article on the various types of information systems I was curious as to whether there was one for students, so when I went about to find a suitable one I came across a systems known as “Student information system”.

College these days are run differently from years ago, to keep up with the latest control many universities have implemented a student information system (SIS), which is an application used by University’s to manage the programmes and modules within the college while also managing the administration of students from point of application to conferral.

Every college is different so the systems can vary in size, capability and scope. They cover student’s records with the main aim of running large campus organizations with significant local responsibility.

the importance and result of well thought out Student Data Management.

While the college uses information systems to keep data of students, students use information systems to access information through the college website whether it’s to find articles which are located in the library, filter through blackboard, retrieve past exam papers and the list goes on.

The Student Information System benefits both the universities and the students and with new improvements it’ll have a substantial impact in the future.

      I think blackboard is very helpful anyways for getting access to lecture notes and reading material! It be very interesting to see how they can improve on these features.

    That’s a really interesting topic, I’d never really thought of the importance of having a student-accessible information system in colleges. Great blog!

    Very interesting blog, I never thought of the student portal or the online library resource as a information system before.

      Thanks! Ya I was wondering what type of information systems were available for students. I find it very handy that you could be any where such as home and be able to access exam papers or lecture notes instead of having to go into college and find them in the library etc.
