FE colleges increase their network resilience - FE News

FE colleges increase their network resilience - FE News | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Superfast internet access has come to be such a major part of our everyday lives that network connectivity is often seen as a given 'right', but as with all technologies it is not infallible, and things can and do go wrong.

If your internet goes down at home chances are you'll be slightly inconvenienced while you wait for the problem to be put right. Not such a big deal if you're browsing for pleasure, but say you need to use the internet for work or study, a few hours offline can seriously hamper your output.

Now think about what would happen if you lost connectivity in your college. Potentially hundreds of students and teachers would be unable to access the online resources and services they need. Bad enough if this were to transpire during teaching or study time; if a loss of connectivity were to happen during an exam, the outcome would be positively disastrous...

"Technology is being described as the new education benchmark after research revealed that more than half of further education students said tech facilities played a part in their choice of college.

 

Conducted by Jisc, the UK’s digital champion for education, research and skills, the research suggests that students are embracing technology like never before and want to see their classroom become a digital haven."

Are we too dependent on Technology in the Classroom? | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"Being able to focus on a page of text and assimilate the key information from it, without distraction, is a massively important skill and (unlike many technology skills) is one that you can only really gain in a classroom environment. The worry is that with a focus on technology these key and traditional skills will be left behind."

   - maps with markers that move,
   - images and text that pop up on cue, and
   - lines and shapes that change over time.
When users share their Animap with peers, and/or others, it appears like a video - they will be able to...
   - play,
   - pause,
