Education Management Information System
In response to a request from the Ministry of Education to adapt and use the UNESCO OpenEMIS (Open Source Education Management Information System) software for the Jordanian education system, the UNESCO Amman Office is customizing the software for the Ministry and facilitating the transition of the system onto OpenEMIS.
OpenEMIS is an open source education management information system (EMIS) designed to collect and report data on education systems. This sector-wide tool provides education statistics in a flexible and cost-effective manner that meets the needs of information producers and users. OpenEMIS can be used for education ministries, education administrators at the regional, local and school levels and for the generation of national statistics. It collects and analyzes data, provides standard education indicators and powerful data visualizations, identifies disparities and gaps, facilitates resource allocation and data-driven decisions, improves planning and monitoring and delivers through a royalty-free web-based interface with multiple language support. The OpenEMIS initiative is coordinated by UNESCO with the support of a technical team.
