A little note from Richard Lane, Education Account Technical Strategist
Today, more than ever our schools and colleges in the UK are faced with dwindling budgets – and are looking for new and innovative ways to modernise and improve their teaching and learning experience.
Student access to computing resources has long been a concern for many organisations, but changing the pupil to pc ratio can be a stretch too far for many organisations.
A great solution which can help is Windows MultiPoint Server 2011.
In a Nutshell…..
MultiPoint Server 2011 is a Windows based solution that is designed specifically to give every student individual access to PCs. By allowing multiple users to simultaneously share one computer – and still providing a rich independent Windows experience, it is a cost effective way to get more technology into classrooms, computer labs and libraries.
The savings can be quite substantial, typically organisations see up-front technology savings of between 35%-50%. There are then the energy savings and on-going management savings too.
So if you are about to kit out a new computer lab or classroom – I would certainly recommend at least looking at Multipoint Server in a bit more detail.
