Apart from sending instantly relayed local messages to students, colleagues and parents, the many other benefits SMS offers educational institutions include enabling e-learning for distance learners all over the world and informing students immediately of their exam results rather than making them wait for the snail mail (post) to arrive!
Some teachers also use SMS for providing absenteeism reports or for communicating with parents. Keeping parents informed about any issue relating to their child is a key part of the education process, and being able to easily contact parents regarding an issue at school, truancy or just to provide regular updates on their child's progress or school events offers clear benefits to schools, parents and pupils alike.
