CollPoll Helps Top Educational Institutions in Kolkata to Become Digital Campuses
CollPoll, a Mobile-first Digital Campus Platform, today announced that the company’s platform has been adopted by NSHM Knowledge Campus in Durgapur & Kolkata. The startup has provided a seamless and state-of-the-art learning and smart campus experience to the students of Kolkata. Kolkata is one of the fastest growing regions for CollPoll. Educational institutions in the city will benefit by being able to provide enhanced student engagement, a blended learning environment and a seamless digital experience for more than 5,000 students. CollPoll is planning to partner with 15 more institutions with over 35,000 users in the next 6 months.
Educational Institutions have been largely managing key operations manually. With the onset of the pandemic, it became cumbersome for them to manage processes at scale with increased chances of errors making it difficult to bring accountability and transparency. This led to the adoption of ad hoc technologies that served as a temporary solution to moving classes online. While this was useful in ensuring the continuity of classes, the effectiveness of such unplanned use of technology is highly questionable. Several progressive higher educational institutions realised the need for evolved digital platforms that would help in transitioning a physical campus into a digital one. These platforms transform closed transaction-based IT into an open, engagement-based mobile ecosystem for administrators, faculty, and students, among other stakeholders. They provide seamless collaboration between stakeholders, collapse information barriers, and provide deep insights to the institute’s leadership for decision-making to improve both quality and outcomes.
With 25 years of academic excellence, premier institutions of Kolkata such as NSHM Knowledge Campus envision leveraging such evolved and latest technologies to create a world class education system that equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving world. NSHM Knowledge Campus has been honored for excellence in online education. With the help of CollPoll, these institutions will be able to now provide a holistic and multidisciplinary education, choice based learning, proctored examinations and digital engagement of students thereby becoming a smart campus. CollPoll will enable such institutions to now manage fee and dues collection and become NEP compliant by automating key academic operations. This will help bring in efficiency and real-time tracking of data at a student, programme and batch level in addition to easy access to customized reports. Furthermore, through the platform’s Learning Management System (LMS), faculty can plan and create lessons as well as conduct online classes, thereby ensuring academic continuity. The startup’s Campus Social Network will engage students during the entire duration of their course, thereby providing a one-stop digital campus experience.
CollPoll has partnered with over 150+ leading educational institutions with over 215,000 users which includes students, staff, parents and other stakeholders. It has enabled over 1,60,000 lessons, managed 2,30,000 choice-based course registrations, collected more than 6 million feedback, automated 3,02,22,475 meals and conducted 8 million campus activities across various top institutions in India. The platform is being used by some of the best educational institutions such as Bennett University, CV Raman Global University, Medhavi Skills University, The Apollo University, DY Patil International University, Sri Venkateswara College – Delhi University, Manipal Academy of Banking, among others.
CollPoll was founded by Hemant Sahal to let stakeholders in educational institutions collaborate effectively. Since 2018, its focus has expanded to end-to-end automation of institutions far beyond the traditional ERPs.
