Summer Checklist: What Educators Can do to Improve Processes Before Fall

Jun 17, 2022

School may be out, but now is a great time for educators, both K-12 and collegiate, to consider implementing better systems and processes for a successful new school year. From creating learning materials and developing activities to meeting with parents and submitting grades, educators already have a lot on their plate—and doing paperwork is an unnecessary burden.

So what would it look like for your school to switch from slow, manual processes that involve paper to a more efficient alternative?

Keep reading as we walk through the basics of a file transfer system and how it can give hours back to hardworking educators.

File Transfer 101

A file transfer is simply the process in which one computer system transmits a computer file to another computer system through a communication channel. Whether you’re a university or school administrator that needs to register students, intake information, and collect feedback or you’re an educator who needs to collect files from students and report on progress, all of these tasks can be swiftly and efficiently achieved with the right file transfer system.

That’s because file transfers lie at the essence of daily business operations, whether you work at a school, university, bank, hospital, or somewhere else. Educational institutions regularly transfer data both internally among administrators and educators and externally with students, parents, partners, suppliers, and more.

Imagine if educators didn’t need to go back and forth between hunting down, scanning, and emailing paper files. What if in the new school year, instead of doing paperwork, they were able to spend more time investing in recruiting potential students and investing in existing ones?

An A+ Alternative

Not all file transfer systems are created equal. Many file transfer systems typically fall short because they require complicated processes and open organizations up to accidental human errors as well as risk and compliance violations.

Botdoc is the modern, secure alternative to faxing and emailing. That’s because Botdoc uses a “sending” technology rather than a “sharing” technology when it comes to the file transfer system. With a “sharing” technology, both parties simultaneously exchange data, documents, and more. However, it requires that the end-users use a variety of things—such as a pin, password, login, application, or software—in order to join that “sharing” environment.

With file “sending” technologies, however, only one party needs to be on the system in order to chat, sign, pull or push information, and more—all without creating friction or delays in the process forcing them to create a pin, password, or account. This enables administrators, educators, students, and parents to all easily transfer information between each other. But perhaps most importantly, using a file transfer system such as Botdoc can free teachers from time-consuming and data-heavy tasks so they can have more time to focus on high-impact priorities. Plus, we know that any organization in the business of engaging students must be able to meet them where they are – through a text message. Botdoc does just that.
