Case study : Education
With Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) now an increasingly common form of delivering teaching outcomes, poorly resourced school IT departments can find it a challenge to accommodate a diverse array of technology platforms. StepFwdIT regularly assists schools in developing roadmaps that combine individual teaching methods with the latest in learning technologies.
Education IT challenges
Widescale adoption of BYOD in education has seen demands on schools’ IT systems increase enormously. Digital teaching is dependent on managing of a wide array of platforms, a task that falls to a school’s often underfunded IT department, whose ageing systems must cope with as many as 3.5 devices per student. In addition, schools require 100% uptime, as delays impact negatively on learning outcomes and the class environment. In order to meet the expectations of students, using both their own and the school’s IT resources, friendly and knowledgeable support is a necessity.
How StepFwdIT can help
For StepFwdIT, the education sector is one of the most challenging, yet exciting, that it works in. Schools are assisted by the consultancy’s development of BYOD programs that produce 1:1 learning outcomes thanks to cutting-edge teaching and learning technologies. Through planning and analysis of requirements, StepFwdIT can install infrastructure that permits ‘Anywhere, Anytime’ learning, while teaching outcomes are aided at school by fast response and resolution times. Schools now have the opportunity to implement StepFwdIT’s true BYOD solutions by putting in place a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) backed by Citrix Xendesktop to create a level playing field for all students.
