Flowmono’s Role in Digital Education Administration

The educational world generates millions of documents each year, from student assessments to lesson plans to research papers created by students or faculty. This information can be created in structured formats — as in student records — and unstructured formats, such as Word documents, email, or presentations.

The Need for Digital Transformation in Education

Traditional administrative processes in educational institutions were often time-consuming and prone to errors. Tasks such as document management, record-keeping, and communication were primarily paper-based, leading to inefficiencies and difficulties in accessing information when needed. This is where digital education administration comes into play.

The Challenge

The challenge facing educators, administrators, and students is navigating through documents to find the right information at the right time. Document management is the answer to this challenge.

                                     Benefits of Document Management in Education

Version control

People generate multiple versions of documents, especially during research or projects. Other documents that contain volatile data such as budgets or student population statistics must be updated periodically. Document management can ensure that the latest version of any document is available, while still enabling outdated versions to be stored and archived for retrieval when necessary.

Collaboration

Education often includes research and team projects, which require a method for documenting progress and sharing information while the project is in process. Document management offers a convenient, secure, and accessible repository for structured and unstructured documents to facilitate research and teamwork.

Security and Control

Much of an educational institution’s information is personal and the institution must protect the student’s privacy. Document management solutions offer strong security that allows only authorized people to access sensitive data. It can also maintain an audit trail of who accesses specific documents.

Efficiency

By its very nature, education creates structured and unstructured data. Student records are structured, but their work is unstructured. When considering students for special programs, grants, or scholarship recommendations, it’s vital to have access to both types of material. Document management easily manages structured and unstructured data, making it simple to create a complete profile on any student or topic. Without document management, people must go to multiple sources to create such a profile, and making sense of documents in multiple formats can be difficult. It is also easy to overlook critical documents during a search of random locations scattered over multiple repositories.

Backups and Storage

While individuals have good intentions, the reality is, that most people do not back up data regularly. Centralized storage in a document management repository helps ensure that all critical information is regularly backed up to prevent crippling loss in the event of a disaster.

In addition to ensuring that all documents are safely backed up, using a document management solution as a central storage repository can reduce the overall amount of storage the school must purchase and manage. No duplicate files are taking up precious space — and old documents can be archived or purged by government regulations and school policies.

Regulatory compliance

There are strict laws governing the dissemination and storage of student information. Document management systems provide security and control that help enable privacy while still providing ready access to documents and information when needed. In addition, standardized archival and document deletion procedures help ensure that information is retained for the entire period required by law.

Knowledge management and dissemination

Every school has policies that students, parents, and educators must be aware of, and document management makes it easy to obtain access to documents and to record whether specific people accessed the documents. In addition, many universities publish “fast facts” documents for applicants and alumni, and document management is an effective strategy to manage various versions of the documents and conveniently publish them on the school’s website.
