Universities need more digital tools for distance education

Remote learning is here to stay, especially in higher education. In fact, 43% of administrators expect an expansion of remote and online learning offerings, according to Best Colleges’ 2022 Online Education Trends Report.

But it’s not just students who are moving online. Many universities are also offering more robust digital and hybrid work flexibility for their faculty and staff. That’s why it’s crucial for higher education institutions to fully digitize their document workflows for remote learning and distance education.

Benefits of digital document workflows for remote education

Investing in a digital PDF tool is beneficial in reaching remote learning goals across the entire institution.

Go paperless for a faster, more efficient workflow

Save paper and reduce printing costs by taking your documents digital. Not only is this a faster and easier way to gather information, but it’s also more secure than managing physical copies of confidential documents.

Be prepared for barriers to in-person learning

Having a cloud-based document tool allows you to seamlessly switch between in-person and remote situations should the need arise due to an emergency, either short-term (like inclement weather) or long-term (like a pandemic).

Improve productivity for both students and staff

Whether it’s for admissions, financial aid, enrollment, student services, research, course materials or beyond—faculty, staff and students will all experience faster and easier processes.

Distance learning has never been easier.

  • Create, edit, merge and distribute PDFs
  • Request and gather legally binding eSignatures
  • Track document progression with audit trails
  • Monitor usage and productivity within the platform
  • Collaborate simultaneously with multiple users within a document
  • Allow students to edit and take notes within course documents
