What is Records Management University?

Welcome to Records Management University, the world’s best and only entirely free course dedicated to serving Records Management professionals.  RMU gives a global view of the benefits and challenges of being a Records Manager and covers many of the less-discussed areas and ideas in RM theory. 

Picked by AIIM International as one of the Top 5 Best Records Management Resources, and with over 7,000 RM and IG professionals already signed up, RMU is an ever-expanding and well-regarded resource.  Classes start January 28th.

Making RM Education Fun

Dean Mitch started his career with a desire to teach others.  In college, Mitch received his undergraduate degree in Science Education, and went on to receive his Graduate Degree in Educational Administration. 

His theory of education is strongly based on two big ideas:  education needs to be fun, and students need theoretical frameworks with which to apply ideas.

His personal approach to education has made RMU a truly unique experience. It’s one of the first things people notice about RMU — the classes are just different!  There’s laughter, interesting ideas, and fun conversation.

A Different Kind of Class

RMU began 6 years ago, and the format hasn’t changed.  Each semester includes 5 or 6 classes that cover all aspects of Records Management, and each semester has a big theme to connect the ideas together. 

The first semester’s theme was Jeeps. (Yes, Jeeps! We told you it is an unusual series.)  Jeeps are unique among vehicles because they are truly modular.  You can modify them to fit your unique needs and personality, mirroring a common theme in Mitch’s RM theory: that there’s no such thing as a one-sized-fits-all approach to RM.

Since then he’s used themes from Famous Explorers to the World’s Most Famous Documents to lay the framework for his discussions around RM theory, technique, and technology.

Viewers find that Mitch’s unusual style of teaching makes the viewer genuinely want to keep watching.  To quote the Dean himself, “Finally something in Records Management that isn’t dry!”  For Mitch, it’s all about building relationships between the subjects that they are teaching and topics that keep the students interested.

This Semester of RMU

This Spring 2020 semester is no exception. Encouraged to make a global connection, Dean Mitch is tying the RM theory to a bit of history, looking at people through history who have decided to meet the challenge and rise above misfortune. 

The topics and conversations are going to be more “gigantic” than ever, with a focus on Big Data.  RMU will spend these next 5 classes showing the viewer how to find solutions that allow any Records Manager to keep up with the growing amount of content out there.  You can tune in on January 28th at 2:00 PM.

Classes start soon, register today!

Every RMU session is pre-approved for 1 CRM Credit from the Institute of Certified Records Managers and can claim up to 5 CRM credits per semester.  CUEs can also be applied to ARMA IGPs and AIIM CIPs.
