Wyse, a global leader in cloud computing, today said it will be exhibiting its latest digital classroom solutions it developed in partnership with Microsoft at this year’s eLearning Africa, the continent’s premier annual ICT-enhanced learning forum, slated for May 23 in Cotonou, Benin.
Delegates will get an opportunity to see the digital classroom solutions, Wyse said.
The solutions include an entry level shared computing solution for school IT labs that combines Wyse E01 and Wyse E02 zero clients with Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server 2011; and the Wyse WSM cloud software solution, which offers a centrally-managed, scalable one-to-one computing environment for students that scales across classrooms, labs and schools.
According to the company, both solutions address the requirement for classroom IT that is secure and easy to set up and run, while delivering a great desktop experience for the students.
“The technologies involved are tailored to the continent’s requirements for classroom ICT that is exceptionally reliable, affordable and energy efficient while not compromising on access to the latest applications and data for teaching and learning,” the company said in a statement.
