If you were once a student, we can agree that the processes we went through to apply to institutions of learning were deeply rooted in the mid-20th century.
I remember visiting several institutions, filling out numerous application forms, and physically returning them to the institution. Some institutions were hundreds of kilometers away! Kids these days don’t even have to leave the comfort of their bed.
We also had to periodically visit the institutions to verify the status of our submission letters. The admissions team had to review records, verify qualifications, list students, and update them with their application status on the administrative front. Tiresome and time-consuming, right?
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the world’s economies and also stifled the education industry. The effects have been revolutionary, as educators expect technological solutions to support education and learning in general.
With the pandemic under control and schools and colleges gradually resuming, we have all been pushed to accept the digital educational transformation.
Although some educational institutions have used technological solutions for years, the importance of digital transformation in the education environment has now been realized in most schools and universities across Kenya.
The chalkboards have been replaced by digital whiteboards; the overhead screens with interactive front-of-class showings, and the bulky books with digital tablet versions.
Moreover, digital transformation in schools is not limited to online education and learning only.
There is need to move away from the old unconventional ways of college or university admissions and improve the experience for both the students and the people working in admissions offices.
I’m talking about students searching, applying to schools, registrars approving the applications, and finally allowing the students to download their admission letters on one platform.
A new age enrollment process that is accessible online to all – parents, students, teachers, and administrative offices.
