We’d like to officially welcome Akindi, the Scantron alternative, to the College of Charleston. What makes Akindi better than Scantron?

  • It easily integrates with OAKS classlist and the OAKS grade book.
  • You don’t need to buy Scantron sheets, you can print them yourself.
  • You can scan the bubble sheets from any networked scanner on campus.
  • It’s faster, easier, and more convenient than Scantron!

If you want to use it with OAKS – View the “Getting Started with Akindi through Brightspace – D2L” tutorials.

If you DO NOT want to use it with OAKS – View the “Using Akindi outside of OAKS” knowledge base article, then view the “Akindi” tutorials.

Within the next week, a diagram will be posted over many departmental printers/scanners that outlines how you can scan your bubble sheets to Akindi. If you don’t know how to use the Email feature on your printer you can contact the Helpdesk for assistance or put in a service ticket at

If you have any questions or concerns about this project or product, please contact TLT directly at
