College of Education introduces SRMS

THE Kwara State owned College of Education, Oro, has introduced Student Record Management System (SRMS), a suite of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) kit that enables the school to manage its student administration efficiently.

Developed by an indigenous solutions- service provider, Core Business Technologies Limited, SRMS stands out as the most dynamic solution in the nation’s higher institutions to improve student administration.

According to the chief executive officer, Core Business Technologies, Mr. Edward Essien, SRMS would help in student recruitment, admissions and accommodation.

He said that for students it is goodbye to labourious registration processes and generally enhanced interface between the students and the school.

He explained that the system is bundled with admission process for remedial, undergraduate and post-graduate programmes with modules to accept scanned photos and signatures of students.

“It also offers processes for online application, students admission checking, clearance both off and online,” he said.

Essien also noted that the system affords students to initiate and conclud e–payment as they would be able to register for past sessions, that is, a 400 level student in 2008/2009 Session should be able to enter registration information from his or her 100 level, for instance, which would be 2005/2006.

He further said that the portal has provision for change of course via online; if a student is requested to withdraw from a course, and is eligible to change to another one.

“The Kwara State College of Education’s SRMS has modules for printing necessary completed forms for signatures, assignment of students’ matriculation number both off and online, issuance of I.D. cards for students,”he said.

Stressing that the platform has a feature for downloading required data from the data base, off line, for input into an ID Card issuing programme as well as generation of list of registered students course by course.

"It also captures examination scores course by course, computation of good standing results which varies from school to school,’ he explained, noting that portal could be designed to allow for permission protected changes by school and council in addition to students’ score sheet to be seen only by individual students in off and online.

In addition, he said, SRMS provides list of students that withdrew from the college as a result of not being in good standing or disciplinary case to qualify for final year clearance module, which could be access offline as well as the computation of final year result.

Essien equally said that through the portal, transcripts could be obtained, sessional and semester results, although with the relevant security requirement, even as it could generate NYSC mobilization lists.

‘It offers full e-learning, that is, online lecture notes, assignment among other modules, on/off line e-library, hostel allocation, time table and course allocation for lectures and examinations,’ he said.
