GENIUS SIS main features
Genius SIS: the next generation of web-based Student Information System for online and virtual schools.
Admission reps are notified of submitted applications, which go through an embedded admission process inside Genius until they are accepted. The student is then automatically created in the system and notified about the acceptance.
Dynamic Email Templates and Reports
Teachers and other staff members often need to use email templates when communicating with students, so Genius SIS lets users dynamically create, edit and use templates in an intuitive, user-friendly interface. Genius SIS fully supports HTML templates.
Users can also create their own customized reports using a powerful report builder so that data that needs to be constantly reported on are available with a few clicks.
Easy access to data and self-service functionalities
Students and guardians have their own portal, designed to offer a host of self-service options. The student portal lets them track their progress, request enrollments, print unofficial copies of their transcript, make payments and much more. The portal can also be used in conjunction with a single sign-on mechanism to grant students access to the course content.
Security and Access
The system administrator can easily configure Genius SIS so that only certain users have access to specific pages. For instance, the administrator can specify that only the Finance Director has access to the student financial information, or that only admission reps can view applications.
Access and changes to the database are tracked and logged, and Genius SIS uses SSL encryption to ensure data is kept safe.
Genius SIS offers a comprehensive API that lets external applications interface with the database. Administrators can also "bulk upload" csv files to create courses, students and sections. Additionally, Genius SIS can be integrated with several Learning Management Systems, so that double-entry is eliminated and both systems have access to the same synchronized data.
Genius SIS can also be integrated to external payment systems such as PayPal and Google Checkout.
