SIS and LMS Solutions

All Independent Schools recognize the significance of a robust Student Information System (SIS) that educates and informs personnel, maintains the integrity of your data, and keeps all offices across the campus updated with real-time data. Choosing the most suitable Student Information System to accommodate your school’s needs takes time coupled with extensive analysis. During this process it is important to understand the difference between a Student Information System and a Learning Management System (LMS).

A Student Information System is a software program for education and learning organizations to maintain student records. Your SIS needs to handle a wide variety of academic tasks to keep things running smoothly. You need functions to manage students and parent data, faculty, departments, grading, scheduling, attendance, discipline, and much more.

How can the Advantage SIS help you?

  • Manage the admissions process, from early Inquiry stages through application and enrollment.
  • Instantly construct class and educator activities based on your student body and instructor and resource availability.
  • Track examinations, ratings, points, scores and additional intellectual development metrics.
  • Record attendance details and perform actions such as mailings and notifications based on absences and other discipline records.
  • Manage residential students, including boarding administration and home-life details.

Learning management system – LMS

A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of electronic educational technology (also called e-learning) courses or training programs.

Learning management systems range from systems for managing training and educational records to software for distributing online or blended/hybrid college courses over the Internet with features for online collaboration. Colleges, universities, school districts, and schools use LMSs to deliver online courses and augment on-campus courses. LMSs also act to augment the lessons the teacher is giving in a brick and mortar environment, not just replace them. Corporate training departments use LMSs to deliver online training, as well as to automate record-keeping and employee registration.
