Only a few universities can claim true automation; Being online is different from being automated.
Your school may be online but not automated; in the other case, your school cannot be automated and not be online.
If students still have to print after an ‘online’ course registration and then physically take it to the departmental course faculties/advisors before the faculty could have knowledge or record of it, such school could partially claim to be online but it’s far from being automated.
Here is a case of an automated system in use;
- Online Registrations
Students are able to register for their courses from the student self-service portal and student registrations for each course are AUTOMATICALLY and INSTANTLY displayed on the dashboard of the lecturer-in-charge of the course. This makes for easy result computation, sharing of class resources and sundry actions. NO PHYSICAL CONTACT.
- Results computation and transcript processing
Student performance records are automatically prepared and analysed INSTANTLY for each academic faculty at a central registry or exams and records office, these results are available in real-time to the senate for sitting and approval ALL-IN-A-SINGLE PIECE OF SOFTWARE. The senate approval is possible by the click of an approve button by authorized senate members and all students get a result-release notification on their self-service portal app in the same second the results were approved. Student’s academic transcript is ready in the fastest time and there is no loss of record why transferring files over different pieces of softwares or manually.
- Enrollment and Admissions
The entire enrollment process of a new student into the school is managed from a software removing the common tedious and error issues. Automation of these processes will ease admission inquiry, fee collection, application, and enrollment.
