Students of today are the end users of tomorrow, and in this consumer driven world in which we live today, it is equally important when it comes to delivering educational services.
Whether it’s classroom-based primary and secondary education, or more mobile learning within further or higher educational institutes, the challenges remain the same. How to deliver the applications and content required to drive the learning process.
With the Liquit Digital Workspace delivering applications and content for the Digital Education age couldn’t be simpler. Students can launch applications and review content from any end point device, whether that’s a physical PC or laptop in the classroom, or from their own mobile devices, connecting remotely from outside the classroom environment.
By providing an aggregated Digital Workspace, Liquit can deliver the multiple different application types, whether they are cloud-based, software as a service applications, or applications that are installed onto physical end points.
Learning shouldn’t just stop because a student is not physically sitting in the classroom. They should be able to access their applications and services from wherever they choose to work from, and at whatever time of day suits them. Maybe they have project deadlines where they have to submit coursework by a particular date, and having access to their applications outside of classroom hours would be highly beneficial.
As well as working outside normal classroom hours, students are also the biggest demographic to use Smartphone and tablet type devices to access their applications and content online, and working in this consumer-style environment is nothing new to them.
Deploying the Liquit Digital Workspace in an educational environment allows students to take advantage of not only working when, and where they like, but also from what device they want to work from.
When it comes to delivering educational applications and services, there are endless numbers of different combinations, based on the classroom location, subject being taught, the student, the end point device, and so on. How can you ensure that the right applications and services are delivered to the correct class?
With the context aware filters integrated into the Liquit Digital Workspace, this can be easily solved. The students workspace will be delivered based on set of criteria that needs to be met before the application is made available. For example, only the language teaching applications are delivered to students enrolled on that particular course, and only when they are connected from the languages classroom. For the students the will instantly be presented with the right applications for the right course/subject, without having to go off and waste time looking.
The Liquit Digital Workspace delivers a unified, customizable, web-based interface enabling students to easily launch and run their applications and services using any device, and from whatever location they choose.
Many educational establishments today look to centralize IT services in order to save costs and to streamline management. Being multi-tenant enabled allows the Liquit Digital Workspace to be hosted centrally, either on premises or in the cloud, and deliver the workspace to the students. Each workspace can be tailored to suit each individual faculty, subject, or campus location.
