ID Verification for the Educational Industry
The way education happens is changing. Offline education in schools and universities is moving forward and adapting to online systems, while online education services are growing in popularity and availability from year to year.
Online exams, classes, presentations, and group projects are part of the educational process all over the world. But how to manage online registration for each student? How to perform remote application and onboarding processes and how to verify your students’ identity to avoid fraud on exams, when such stories appear too frequently?
Especially during the 2020 global pandemic, student identity verification in distance learning is becoming more essential. Now, distance verification isn’t just an educational provider's choice, it’s a future-proofing necessity. For example, in Apr'20 the UKVI has relaxed regulations for foreign students and now universitites in the UK can perform Right to Study check remotely to accept international applications. Regula, in partnership with Validate ID, helps to make that happen now.
Additionally, there are manual day-to-day tasks for educational facilities employees or students themselves such as checking students’ college ID cards, entering data into online profiles, health records, library cards, online exam results sheets, and much more.
Education Industry Automation Use Cases with OCR TechnologyData entry
Let's say you have an online student identity verification system already implemented in your website/app or web platform. And for the next step, you want a nice and smoothly-running technology that can scan college students' ID cards and forward captured data to every form field which gathers student’s personal data. For example, his or her name, date of birth, or any part of their college ID card that has text information, QR or barcodes, or even an RFID chip.
