Low-code for educational institutions
Technology plays an increasing role in today’s educational landscape. To keep up and work time efficiently, it is important to look for efficient solutions. But how do you keep up without getting bogged down in technological complexity and high costs? Low-code can be your ally in this.
The challenges within educational institutions
If you work in an educational institution, you are probably familiar with the challenges such as administrative inefficiencies due to outdated systems, communication problems between all involved, and the need to respond quickly to change. Added to this is the need for reliable data security, the complexity of distance learning, and the cost and training associated with new technologies.
Finding an appropriate solution to these problems is essential.
Low-code in understandable language
Low-code sounds technical, but let’s make it simple. Imagine you have a LEGO set. Instead of creating each piece separately, you have large, pre-formed pieces that come together to build an application or software (link). That’s low-code.
You have the blocks and tools you need, ready to be assembled quickly and effectively without having to build every little detail from scratch.
Low-code in education
Do you also see the challenges in education? With low-code, you gain the flexibility to quickly adapt applications to changing needs. You save costs, effortlessly integrate old and new systems, and improve communication between all involved. Plus, it supports and optimizes digital learning. In short, low-code helps your educational institution stay innovative and efficient.
The ROI of investing in low-code
Imagine investing in a technology where you not only save costs but also see results faster. That’s the ROI promise of low-code. From lower development costs to faster adoption, low-code offers schools the opportunity to stay ahead.
Examples of low-code applications in education
This may sound a bit abstract until now. Let’s make it more concrete using some examples of low-code applications:
|Class schedule management||Imagine being able to put together a conflict-free roster within minutes without any headaches|
|Homework and assignment portal||A place where students submit their work and receive real-time feedback, improving communication|
|Attendance registration||Know at a glance which students are present and which are not|
|Online library reservations||A system where students reserve books online, renew them and receive reminders to return them|
|Parent-teacher communication platform||A direct and safe way for parents and teachers to be in touch so that everyone is up-to-date on the latest developments|
|Evaluation and reporting||Automate reports and minimize manual errors.Automatic student performance entry and generation ensure consistency and accuracy|
|School canteen management||A streamlined system of online meal orders, payments and menu feedback. This provides a better user experience for both students and staff|
|Study progress tracker||A tool that gives teachers, students and parents insight into academic progress, identifying weaknesses and celebrating successes|
|Budgeting and spending app||A transparent look at school finance with tools for tracking expenses, budgeting and financial reporting. Makes financial management easier and more efficient|
