Hardware & Software for Education
We can provide quality “tried and tested” hardware and high-end workstations, from Desktop Computers, Laptops, Tablets, Monitors and Printers, to Projectors, Whiteboards and Audio Visual Equipment.
We are here to advise you on the best equipment suited to your teaching methods. Also, we will install them for you, making your IT equipment perform to its best ability!
Perhaps you want to make use of the cost-effective licencing Microsoft in Education software can offer you. This can include Office 365 Education, now including Microsoft Classroom, a single experience for managing all classes and assignment work flow for teachers and students. Or you also have the choice of using the software Microsoft OneNote Class. This software allows teachers to create assignments with due dates, complete with Outlook Calendar events and reminders.
You can also go down the route of using a different software all together. Google Classroom is a free web-based platform that allows you to integrate your Google Apps for an Education Account using familiar Google Services. This includes Google Docs, Gmail and Google Calendar. Classroom can save time and paper, making it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate and stay organized.
A school’s success in launching digital learning will be directly impacted by the performance of its Network and Internet Connectivity. The fear of having slow broadband, inconsistent WIFI or inaccessible school networks will be minimised. Matrix IT can help you by supplying you with a fast, robust and reliable connectivity wherever you are in the school and no matter how many people are using the system at the same time.
Security is critical within schools. But how secure is your school’s sensitive data to a cyber-attack? And how well protected are your students from harmful internet content? We will not only identify the potential security threats, but we’ll let you know how significantly and cost effectively scale up your e-security policies, processes and software to keep your school’s IT threat-free.
Continuity & Disaster Recovery
Pupils’ work, staff salaries and reviews, financial information and personal information. This all needs to be properly protected not by just adequate security, but also strong policies and processes to minimise the risks of loss and the damage it can cause.
Matrix IT can help you develop a strong comprehensive disaster prevention plan for your school’s ICT. While working closely with you, we’ll be able to help you spot critical ICT systems that could be at risk to loss, the likelihood of something happening to the systems and the impact on school life if something did go wrong. Plus, as a bonus we have an offsite data back-up service to ensure that your data is kept safe and secure.
