Even though the education sector is growing and institutions are adopting new technologies, institutions are still facing many challenges in various categories. In this blog, let’s discuss the major challenges faced by educational institutions and how Academia can help overcome them.
- Efficient Communication
An efficient chain of communication is the key to success in every business. In the current scenario, every stakeholder associated with an educational institution remains occupied with their part of jobs that sometimes lacks one-to-one meetings and transfer of all the needs. Advanced educational institutions need a robust platform that can streamline the chain of communication among all stakeholders.

The Academia mobile app and parent/student/faculty portal make it easier for everyone with regular emails, SMS, notifications, and WhatsApp messaging. It provides prompt updates to everyone.

The main objective of educators is to ensure institutional development and make teaching effective, productive, and result-oriented. But due to the tiring day-to-day tasks that are done manually, it takes away the enthusiasm and hardly leaves any time for creative thinking and innovation for teachers & staff.
