The organizations will launch field trials of the system to evaluate its effectiveness at Chulalongkorn University and expand features that meet the needs of universities in Thailand.
Development of the new system makes it possible to help students, advisors and instructors collectively manage the student’s academic and extracurricular activities, they said.
The trial will involve students with exceptional abilities in sports, art and music by consolidating all of the different kinds of student information collected across multiple departments at Chulalongkorn University into a single student performance management system.
In addition, a two-way communications feature for individual students and faculty members means information and advice can be tailored to the circumstances of each student.
Insights gained from the Chulalongkorn University trials will be leveraged to add new features that fit the needs of Thailand’s university system and culture. After further evaluation of the system put in operation at the university, Fujitsu plans to develop it into a solution well-suited to other Thai universities.
These field trials represent Fujitsu’s first endeavor at deploying its university education solutions at an institution outside Japan. Going forward, Fujitsu will seek to develop new solutions to be brought to market in Thailand.
