Managing Student Records in Distance Education
Records can tell stories about diverse groups of students that help institutions provide a continuously improving, quality learning experience. Sophisticated databases for student record management now make it possible to free up time previously spent in endless data capturing, and focus attention on interpreting the data and responding to information. To design a student record system that produces meaningful, decision- making information, a narrow, mechanistic approach is insufficient. The challenge is to think holistically about what you want to achieve, and how best to achieve it.
