Learn about OneRecord: Tri-C's student data hub
September 26, 2016
A large institution like Cuyahoga Community College collects a lot of data on its students. The College collects data on every student in a variety of areas, from financial aid to personal background, to academic performance – and that’s just the start.
The information is there. But the challenge is taking all of that information, processing it and utilizing it in a way that benefits students.
That’s why Tri-C partnered with Westlake’s Hyland Software Inc. to develop OneRecord. The software platform, launched in June, allows faculty and staff Collegewide a single interface for accessing about 100 points of data on each student. Whether it’s a teacher, counselor or student-facing staff member, everyone the College has access to the same pool of data.
The aim is to allow for better communication between students and staff, and between departments, allowing the College to provide assistance to students quickly and more efficiently.
OneRecord is a part of the “One Door: Many Options for Success” initiative envisioned by Tri-C President Dr. Alex Johnson. The initiative’s goal is to make the college experience as seamless as possible for students, increasing graduation rates while decreasing the time it takes to earn a degree.
An article in this week’s edition of Crain’s Cleveland Business highlights the reasons why OneRecord is “powerful stuff” for Tri-C and its students.
