On the heels of its acquisition of Avow Systems yesterday, Parchment is unveiling enhancements to its Docufide e-Transcript exchange platform and launching a new offering called Parchment Discover, which represents a new category of enrollment analytics. Using social graphing, Parchment Discover enables higher education officials to better identify prospective students, not only based on academic credentials, but also where similar students have applied, were accepted, and ultimately chose to enroll. The tool also helps students get noticed by colleges that may be a good fit for them by opting in when they use the free service, Parchment.com, which helps students request and send e-transcripts to colleges of their choice, gauge their college admissions chances and get college recommendations. New features in Docufide include a Dashboard that helps high school and college administrators see quick snapshots of transcript requests, delivery status, and volume, among other data.

ISTE Urges Educators to Share E-Rate Success Stories With Federal Communications CommissionWASHINGTON, D.C. –Oct. 31, 2013 –There’s still time to have an impact on the future of the E-Rate thanks to the extension of the deadline for filing comments to Nov. 8. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted this extension following the recent 16-day government shut down.“The impact of the E-Rate program on our schools has been transformational, but as technology evolves, so must E-Rate. That is why I called for the FCC to begin a proceeding to update the program. Now is the time for educators and educational professionals from around the Nation to weigh in with the FCC. We must help build a record about the need for next-generation Internet connectivity in our schools and libraries," said United States Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV. "The global economy demands an increasingly educated workforce with higher skills and strong backgrounds in science, math and technology. Our students must have access to high-speed Internet connectivity to gain the skills necessary to compete.”
