Instructors can also use a SIS platform to send announcements, share important resources, and facilitate virtual office hours, ensuring open lines of communication.

3. Accessing Learning Materials

5. Data Analytics and Tracking Student Performance:

SIS platforms provide reporting features that enable instructors and administrators to track student performance.
