Educational industry differs with any other business in the sense, that the most vital commodity traded is Knowledge! You have a good ERP but knowledge and the flow of knowledge (knowledge transactions) not managed well, will surely not be enough to get optimal running of the educational entity. These modules are
Performance Tools- Emotional aspects:- Student's performance depends upon many things like, their personal capacity to learn, teacher's ability to teach, availability of resources, the environment or surroundings and many more things. Student going to school/college is only a part of the student's education and evolution process. To manage these aspects, we have formulated a process that tightly integrates and forces participation from all the players involved in student's growth! These tools are guaranteed to enhance the performance of the institute on the whole. This aspect includes following modules:
This module includes, Planning of the Course syllabus, and creating the course material. The course material can consists of E-books, Classroom notes, And sets of question papers with answers.
Students will be able to access the information based on the access controls (e.g. they may not be able to access some information that is of different subject not pertaining to their course, or they will be able to see class notes of their subject from multiple teachers)
This module is distributed over different dashboards. The functionality is to get assignments and submit assignments online, Use the interactive platform to ask doubts, which can be answered by any users based on your filters. The whole community of the school can be updating a lot of information using these interactive platforms. There will be moderators who will check authenticity of information so that the quality of information is maintained. We have 'wrong communication sniffer' and intelligent tool, which will most likely catch any malicious content that is being loaded. The community can start discussions on various subjects, take opinions, and build further knowledge base.
This is extended module, where you add some of your library content online, which is fully searchable and is available to the close group of the school members. This way the members will have access to vast information without visiting the library.
This is extended module, where you can create online exams and assign it to student, group of student, classes. Students get notified on their dashboard and can solve this test online.
Knocean has unique Performance tools. These tools help in performance evaluation of Students, Teachers, Departments, Management and the educational institute as a whole.
Apart from performance measuring, these tools have processes carefully designed by educationologists, and psychologists, to force fairness and higher performance for all entities of the school.
This system is based on defining responsibilities of all entities involved in the student's progress. The performance rating and cross check method enforces all parties involved to really perform, points lacunae and lapses to these entities, Gives them suggestions and improvements based on all the actions and transaction within the Knowledge flow system.
To give some examples: A teacher rates a student slow in math learning. It does not end here. If this rating does not match the performance so far of the student, then it created an alert point in the system. Also as soon as the teacher rates this student poor in math, the teacher is forced to respond to queries like 'what do you think is the problem?', 'What steps are you taking to solve this?'. As all this information is visible to the parent, the parents can participate in this process, raise an objection, respond with comments or actions.
If the parent is not participating in the process, and not doing their part the system will show a red alert symbol, showing the parent that they are not doing the best for the student. It will give them suggestions on what can be done to better things.
The management will get reports and suggestions which will help them arrange 'training for the teachers' to fill the gaps.
We can proudly say that with Knocean and its Performance and Knowledge tools, the Educational Institute is Bound to improve in Performance drastically.
All entities in the Education process, right from the Institute, teachers, students, parents are rated for their performance.
For each entity, we have designed standard KRAs and KPIs (Sets of Key Result Areas and Key Performance Indicators) though the institute admin can edit/create new Result areas as per the requirement, and fully customize the performance rating application.
A student is rated by teachers (and may be group leader/house leader/monitor etc, as configured by the institute) independently on various aspects like learning ability, behavioral aspects, discipline, participation, communication, extracurricular activities and many more. The system removes possible biases by having a multi-point evaluation and also relating with the actual trends.
Teachers get rated at the time they get recruited in the school. This is their first rating. After this the teacher's rating gets matured by The class results/student's results Student's ratings: Students can rate a teacher based on ability to teach, friendliness, ability to understand student's issues and problems, etc.
Rating given by their superiors/supervisors/department head or principal etc.
This is the activity board for student. This gives the student ability to interact with teachers, colleagues/other students for exchange of information.
This will inform the student of his schedule, timetable, exam alerts, pending issues, fees to be paid, missed lectures to be downloaded and many more.
This is a single point of all activities and interaction for the student. Student will be able to view assignment, submit assignment, reserve a library book (If that module is integrated)
This will be student's activity center, and student will be able to plan his fun/games with fellow students, set reminder for a football match etc. Making this module a happy experience, will induce the student to visit it frequently and thus help in his education too.
How is my child doing at the school? Is he regular? Is he picking up well? Who does he mix with, and is he picking any wrong traits? Parents would be concerned about these things. Parents Dashboard is the summary of student's progress, activities, attendance, results/report card and important events. This module allows parents to interact with teachers, attend e-meeting with teacher (when actual meeting is difficult to manage)
Teacher's dashboard consists of his/her timetable/schedule for the week, queries from students to be responded, add notes for parents, publish results, create lecture notes, create assignments and send them to students, create question sets, access complete knowledge base etc.
Bird's eye view of all entities in the Institute.
