FASTER ACCESS TO ALL SYSTEMS
It’s very common for teachers and lecturers to have to login to multiple systems in order to access all data and applications. Office 365 is accessed locally on their device and they have to access national or regional applications (such as Capita School Information Management System SIMS) via a remote connection. This means managing multiple passwords and lost time spent logging into different systems. Our hosted desktops allow users to access everything they need in one familiar Windows environment with only one login.
We can even host applications that are historically only available on-site to make these applications available anywhere as well. So rather than have disjointed systems where certain applications require different connections we are able to bring all your applications together. Whatever applications you’re using be it Capita SIMS, Blackboard, Sharepoint, SISRA, Evolve, Exam Wizard, Testbase, Show My Homework, CIVICA, Frog, CLEAPPS, Brightspace or Adobe Creative Cloud we’ll host them for you. So far we’ve not found an application we couldn’t support!
It’s not just teachers or lecturers who can benefit from hosted desktops. Our service can also help enhance the learning experience of students too by making it more affordable to have more PCs in each school. By using the processing power in our cloud it means lower cost computers, such as Raspberry Pi’s, Chromebooks, 10ZiG’s and other ‘thin client’ PCs can be used, allowing your budget (including Pupil Premium budget) to go further when kitting out computer rooms, libraries or classrooms.
From school children to university students, the Atlas Cloud hosted desktop service can be set up on personal devices too, allowing easy access to all learning resources and applications required for homework, assignments or exam revision.
