ColumbiaSoft supports instruction in content and document management at Deggendorf Institute of Technology
Students in content management class will learn with hands-on instruction using Document Locator software.
Portland, Ore. – May 13, 2014 - ColumbiaSoft has announced that its Document Locator document management software will be used by students learning content management at Deggendorf Institute of Technology. All the software, support, as well as a standard configuration and materials have been provided for educational use in the instruction of the class.
“The purchase of multiple licenses would have been well beyond the classroom budget,” said Deggendorf Adjunct Professor Simon Preis. “ColumbiaSoft stepped in immediately to allow us use of their document management software so our students would have the ideal learning experience.”
Preis is instructing the class on Content Management to 50 students at the University. Preis has years of experience working with Document Locator as a systems analyst and project manager at an international technology company which uses Document Locator.
The class, Content Management and Document Engineering, includes an overview of document management: its history, its business and legal requirements and its future. Students will put theory into practice by using the software. Technical processes, automation in general (business process automation in particular), security management, integration and workflow will feature prominently.
Each student will get hands-on practice with Document Locator, both directly and interactively, in the classroom and at home. In so doing, they’ll develop the skills to model processes, analyze business requirements, set up an architecture, and integrate systems. Preis hopes to teach the course again next year, possibly as soon as next autumn.
The Deggendorf Institute of Technology, founded in 1994, is a business, media, and technical University of Applied Sciences which places high value on practical and international experience. Over 4,000 students attend the school, which is located in Lower Bavaria, Germany about 60 miles (100km) from Munich.
