Developing an intelligent system for educational administration involving knowledge-intensive activities is a challenging task. Hardly adequate architectures exist which allow integration and sharing of multiple knowledge bases inherently distributed logically and physically. The intelligent systems that have been proposed in the contemporary research specifically related to educational domain, intend to cater to the needs of the front-office operations only such as E-Learning, Online Course Management Systems, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, etc. To offer a more comprehensive solution, the present research paper proposes an architecture for a Knowledge-Based Educational Administration System (KBEAS) to facilitate the workability of back-office operations that span a wide spectrum from routine procedures to highly judgmental issues. Further, an overall architecture of the system is illustrated by considering a case of Work-Integrated-Learning-Division of a leading Indian institution to demonstrate the validity and benefits of the knowledge-based technique.
