The technology has been present in schools and universities for a long time, but today it is also in the hands of faculty and student body, whether it be laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
This phenomenon, known as BYOD (bring your own device), makes possible a mobility strategy for the educational environment, in which relevant information to the community is shared in a safe and integrated environment.
And the great advantage is that the educational institution can use already existing devices and information.
Grades, classes, schedule and events are important information in schools and universities. However, other information is also relevant and it can make the community more productive and integrated.
Wi-Fi infrastructure, security cameras, classroom devices such as projectors and printers, or even secured access to the institution are examples of functions that can integrate your mobility strategy.
All presented within a homogeneous and safe digital platform.
The great challenge is to safely integrate data from different systems.
The Half Dome Mobility Platform does that without requiring changes in the already installed systems within your educational institution, by using 'connectors' that are prepared for any information system.
These connectors enable the incorporation of completely heterogeneous environments within a single platform in which you automated processes such as automatic attendance, opening doors and ratchets, student location and use of the institution's devices and appliances.
It is in the Mobile Application that the integration between users (students, parents and faculty) and the institution happens.
This application is based on the pillars of Simplicity, Performance and Security, besides bringing the principles and history of the educational institution through the application of its visual identity on the entire interface.
Besides colors, logos and texts, your educational institution also chooses which modules to use and when to implement them.
The App is available in two versions: K-12 and Higher Education.
We have also prepared a more elaborate document that presents the concepts of Mobility Strategy and BYOD in the educational environment.
See some practical examples and benefits by using these concepts.
