Case Study: How eMLi helped NCSC to acquire NAAC 'A' Grade
"It was Narmada College of Science and Commerce, Bharuch (NCSC) who put the foundation stone in the successful beginning of the eMLi. We heartily congratulate Dr. B. M. Rawal for leading a small but highly efficient team of enthusiastic, dedicated and result oriented people.
We appreciate your support!"
The Narmada College Story
It was 2005 when the Google and Facebook were not so popular in India and Android was not even born one man was ready to adopt technology in the education management in a small institute in India. At this very early phase of technology the Principal of Narmada College of Science and Commerce, Bharuch, Dr. B. M. Raval decided to take the institute on the Auto-mode. They approached AuroMeera looking to AuroMeera's experience in the Office Automation for various processes.
- Less Manpower
- Under-utilized Resources
- New Technology Adoption
AuroMeera was given the task to develop an Admission System for the college keeping in mind the less manpower was available in the month of May-June at the college during the admission procedure. AuroMeera started developing the algorithm to comply with the most complex mechanism of Admission process which encompass the reservation system of the seats for specific students. The project e-Mahavidyalaya (the previous name of eMLi) started. AuroMeera delivered the solution and acquired desired output in the initial implementation trial.
Later, the college decided to automate the remaining activities of the Student Management like Fees Collection, Certificate Issuance and related office tasks. At this stage AuroMeera has focused the implementation and put maximum team efforts in the development of the system at NCSC. Everything was just perfect for the NCSC implementation as the cooperation of the NCSC Team was amazing and the enthusiasm of the AuroMeera Team was very high. The AuroMeera team kept adding newer features and office administration staff of NCSC was so keen to adopt the newer release of the software. They adopted all the facilities and given their valuable feedback to make the system better.
At this stage the complete Office Automation suite was ready now the focus was shifted to the Academic Activities of the College. Started with the Time-table generation to attendance and aggregation of the student's internal assessment for the final examination. AuroMeera team divided into two parts and started developing these facilities as per the specific requirements of NCSC.
In 2007, the entire system was migrated to the newer technological concepts of Object Oriented Programming as PHP 5 (the Object Oriented Programming supported PHP) stable was released. On the later stage when the bio-metrics and RFID like technologies were made accessible at a comparatively cheaper rate, these technologies were also incorporated in the project.
- Determination of the leader
- Team: Adaptive to Change
- Preparedness for New Technology Adoption
- Best Resources
