Education

Overview

Shaping young minds is about more than just books and teachers. A school’s infrastructure can make it a more welcoming place, where getting work done is easy, even when the homework is hard.

From K-12 to higher education, we strive to help schools provide the best environment they can for students, faculty, and staff. An environment where information flows freely and meets the changing needs of students and faculty, and everyone works together toward a better education — and a better place to get one.

The cloud saves times and simplifies collaboration

The cloud is all about simplicity and speed. Our Cloud Connected Education solution enables you to mobilize information for quick access and use. Students can store and share documents in the cloud and submit assignments in Blackboard® Learn, Canvas, etc. Teachers can upload information to these cloud applications in one step. Additionally, our MFPs, which connect you to the cloud, can be configured with security features to protect sensitive information and with accounting software that lets you charge back costs. 

Tests that practically grade themselves

Tests can be nerve-wracking not only for your students, but for you as well, especially if you’re dealing with a large class.

Ricoh’s Testing and Grading Solution for Education can ease the burden both ways. Simply enter your tests into the nearest scanner or multi-function printer (MFP), along with an answer key. The system quickly, accurately, and automatically grades the test. You can even let students check their grades in real time. Your job is done more quickly, and the students have less time to wait (and, in some cases, less time to worry).

Records that will outlast but not overwhelm you

Your institution has a venerable legacy — and a venerable stash of countless paper records. Ricoh’s K-12 Student Records Management and Records Management Solutions for Higher Education let you take control. Through a combination of hardware, software, and process improvements, we’ll work with your records (both new and legacy) to digitize and store them with improved security. And because they’ll be properly tagged and categorized, you can easily find the information you need.

Mail services that deliver value

Chances are your college mail room was set up for letters, not Amazon Prime. Ricoh’s Campus Mail Solutions for Universities fine-tune your operation for the era of email, texting, and online shopping. With us, new packages will email their intended recipients when they arrive, saving your mail room both valuable space and time.

And that’s just the beginning. We can give your students self-serve kiosks that allow them to pick up their own packages and ship through multiple carriers, all without setting foot off campus or pulling your employees away from other tasks.

Applications made easy

There are few aspects of higher education more paper- and labor-intensive than admissions and financial aid. Fortunately, Ricoh’s Admissions and Financial Aid Process Workflow Solutions are the right answer to your application headaches.

Our services and technologies will convert your hard-copy documents, automate and digitize your manual, paper-based processes, and streamline your entire operation into a better experience for both you and your applicants. A world where timely feedback, easy linking of paper documents to digital records, and automatic, digital processes are the norm? Ricoh can make it happen.

Anytime, anywhere campus printing

Once upon a time, campus print systems were dominated by the “computer room,” and things were easier. Now, your students want to print from smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other personal devices because they — and their information — are mobile.

Ricoh’s Print Management Solution for K-12 helps you navigate this mobile minefield and implement an efficient print infrastructure, including fleet management, student / faculty billing, and, yes, anytime, anywhere printing. Perfect for both higher-education and K-12, you cut down on waste, curb abuse, and reduce both costs and your environmental burden.

IT services for an IT-driven education

Education and technology are more tightly intertwined than ever before, and that means your K-12 school has IT needs. From Common Core computer-based testing to different learning styles to educational demands, what’s a school without the budget space — or dedicated IT staff — to do?

That’s where Ricoh’s Engineered IT Solutions for K-12 come in. Our experts will gladly manage your IT setup for you at a lower cost than hiring and training all new personnel. That’s something a lot of school districts — and, by extension, many taxpayers — will be glad to hear.
