"We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world."
- David Warlick, an educator, author, programmer, and public speaker.
In synergy with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, FRTC is preparing itself with fundamental changes in the way it works and relates to its clients, students, staff, accreditation authorities and various media platforms. The institution has embraced the extraordinary technological advances that have evolved from the first, second and third industrial revolutions.
In preparation for the 4th Industrial Revolution, FRTC has shifted its priorities and responsibilities by installing the latest technology-driven Learner Management Information System (LMIS) in October 2019 to match its improved operational goals and digital transformation.
FRTC is a successful educational institution that is committed to providing quality education by developing its staff and students through the use of technology. The implementation of the new comprehensive LMIS is aligned to the institution's management, administration, operational and academic processes that will deliver a better student experience.
Students are at the heart of FRTC
In response to students' changing lifestyles, needs and demands, the institution's LMIS accommodates access to an e-library, distance and online learning and teaching. FRTC's LM IS records student data and it is used to monitor, control and evaluate daily progress of students. This crucial function provides insights that help the institution to execute better and timeous decisions in the best interests of the students.
FRTC educators are equally important
The progress of FRTC educators is equally important; therefore, the LMIS is an added advantage to the facilitators, for example, the system:
LMIS helps management to prioritize responsibilities FRTC Management uses the LM IS to prioritize responsibilities by conveniently and speedily tracking and analysing resource distribution and expenditures which helps them to make informed decisions. In addition, the system provides management with an evidence-based tool to monitor and control facilitators, faculties and staff performance to ensure that the students' needs are given precedence so that they can apply their learned knowledge and skills independently and effectively in the real work.
"The shift to lifelong learning is absolutely essential. As the pace of technological change quickens, we need to be sure that employees are keeping up with the right skills to thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. That applies to both technical and soft skills. There will be changes in both areas."
