Automated Transcript Scanning
Years ago, the strategy seemed to be to create a process where Higher Education could transmit transcripts between university’s electronically. How widespread is that effort or has it fallen flat.
We are examining a solution which would allow us to scan all incoming transcripts, and the proposed system would OCR the transcript, and discern through configuration scripts, which areas of the transcript hold course information, and encode that into a system which can be inputted into our SIS. Does anyone have a similar solution. Is there a vendor which has this solution figured out well?
Has anyone been able to go to primarily Electronic Transcripts? If not, then where did we as an industry fall short?
