Abstract

As part of imparting quality higher education for undergraduate and postgraduate students, Srinivas Institute of Management Studies (SIMS) developed an education service model for integrated academic support known as Srinivas Integrated Model. Backed by the presumption that knowledge is power and information is fundamental to knowledge building and knowledge sharing, this model is aimed to provide information support to students for improved academic performance. Information on the college and courses in the form of prospectus, information on curriculum, rules and regulations through college calendar, individual course wise pamphlets on value additions through certificate programmes, workshops and skill development programmes, teaching plan booklet enabling a student to forecast the outline of the curriculum, printed study material simplified to gain understanding and straight entry into the curriculum, provision to download examination related information through college website, and opportunity to get information related to individual attendance, examination marks, instructions from the faculty etc. through the unique college intranet service called Srinivas Information and Management System, are all integral part of this information system model. This paper discusses Srinivas Integrated Model as a best practice of regularizing and managing a complex network of communication traffic using a combination of print, digital and IT enabled techniques and how it serves academic support.

Keywords: Best Practice in Higher Education, Srinivas Integrated Model
