eVision is a sophisticated, web-based student administration system developed by Open Learning Technology (OLTech), a subsidiary of Kagiso Capital. It delivers technology to supplement and enhance education.
eVision caters to any educational programme, facilitating student lifecycle management and storing all students’ administrative and academic data and records. The system was initially designed and built to serve large universities in South Africa. However, over the last two decades, their user base transformed into smaller institutions registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) that offer accredited courses, certificates, diplomas and other qualifications. OLTech also ensures that these institutions adhere to the DHET’s requirements and regulations.
This change in market focus meant the platform had to be adapted to meet the needs of a different user base. The software technology used to build the eVision platform had also become outdated, and the user interface needed a redesign.
