As technology continues to rapidly grow and distance learning becomes more common, the quality and effectiveness of technology in the education system is a top priority. The education industry needs training and IT support to provide valuable learning experiences to students while keeping families connected with school personnel. Students are the future, so they need access to the best technologies to help them grow.
At NetConnect, we strive to provide the best IT services for your business to ensure student success and help make your job a bit easier. Here are a few of the benefits IT support can provide for schools.
Schools possess a large amount of sensitive information, such as student and faculty social security numbers, other forms of identification and records, disciplinary records and other confidential documents. You must protect this sensitive information. Cybercrime is at an all-time high, and no industry is an exception to being targeted.
Managed security services and network firewall security ensures that your technology isn’t susceptible to ransomware, malware or other malicious data that could harm students, faculty, or network infrastructure. We provide secure connectivity to keep malicious actors out and your business locked in. In the unfortunate case of a data breach, we as business IT solutions experts will ensure your data is preserved and retrievable with cloud managed IT services.
Improved Organization & Communication
Maintaining and sorting data associated with students, faculty, and administrative tasks can be daunting. This is why we provide clients with IT support that allows you to store and organize data and improve communication and collaboration, all while cutting costs. Distance learning is now quite common and communicating with students and their families is more difficult.
Our managed IT services will equip your business with innovative E-learning platforms that allow you to communicate effectively. Your staff can keep student records up to date while automated communication alerts students and families about upcoming assignments and recent grade changes. When messages aren’t enough, and face-to-face interactions aren’t possible, NetConnect provides you with accessible video conferencing to teach and meet with parents and students to discuss any concerns.
Advanced business IT services will also help to strengthen internal relations. Working from home or in classrooms away from each other can lead to a decrease in team collaboration and may lead to miscommunication. Cloud-based communication software like Microsoft 365 will allow you to relay information to your employees regularly and on schedule. Accessible video conferencing encourages and supports top-grade collaboration among staff. By utilizing these tools, you can keep business in order and maintain productivity both inside and outside of the classroom.
Access to Training & Experts
The quality of a student’s K-12 education is dependent on the quality of their technology, but how beneficial is quality technology if you’re unfamiliar with how to use it? To supply the best learning experience, your staff needs training. That’s why we provide Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) to enhance your staff’s ability to use and understand the learning management systems we provide to your business. MOOCS, coupled with 24/7 IT support, will enable your staff to feel confident when using newly implemented technology.
Our team of expert technicians is fully equipped to handle the specific technologies associated with learning management systems, with certifications in Google Suite, Microsoft 365 for education, Blackbaud, and Fund EZ. Save your business some capital, instead of dedicating funds to internal training and single IT specialist. When you partner with NetConnect, you are working with your one-stop shop for 24/7 tech support.
