Banner flies over student information system

A new, integrated student information system, Banner2000, went live on April 23, and is now in use by more than 330 administrators and teachers across campus.

Banner contains data on admissions, registration, examination and graduation of 120,000 students registered since 1993. For the first time, everyone who needs to can write into the system. A web front end, Banner Web for Faculty, gives access to lists of students on their modules, print out enrolment lists and email groups of students.

Bannerís launch follows 20 months of development and training. The first phase of the student information management system (SIMS) project will be completed by late summer. Users will be consulted about future developments, including electronic registration of students.

The system is produced by the American company SCTCorp and has been adopted by a number of UK universities including Birmingham, Greenwich, Liverpool, Leeds Met and Imperial College.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Communications and IT, Professor David Hogg, said: "The successful launch of Banner is a major step forward. We will now develop a variety of new features to support teaching and learning which will keep the University at the cutting edge of computer applications in student administration."
