Your students depend on technology to live, work and play. As administrators, you want to provide the best — after all, the best tools attract the best applicants. At the same time, you need your school operations to run as efficiently as possible.
We know change isn’t easy. But thanks to the Internet of Things, you’re probably closer than you think. It starts with realizing the potential of the Internet of Your Things — the infrastructure, devices and data already in place in your school.
The school began testing Microsoft Surface Hub, a team collaboration device that makes it easy to hold lectures with remote experts, work together on group projects, and bridge gap between education anf industry. Using Surface Hub, ESMT promotes integrated learning, delivers engaging curriculum, and encourages students to take an active role for a more collaborative classroom environment
Situation: After consolidating into one building and an investment in a chiller, the school needed to reduce energy bills to fit their tight operating budget.
Solution: Using Azure and ICONICS, the school sped fault detection and increased energy efficiency.
Situation: The school faced challenges in studying building efficiency due to expensive systems which lacked predictive and energy efficiency capabilities.
Solution: Using Power BI and Azure Machine Learning, CMU proactively addresses problems, reducing energy costs.
Situation: The 125-building campus struggled to unify an incongruent array of sensors, causing energy efficiency challenges.
Solution: Harvesting billions of data points per week from building sensors enables insights leading to a 10% reduction in energy cost.
Situation: In an effort to foster a more active student culture, the school sought ways to create collaborative classrooms, offer flexible solutions to missed classes and more.
Solution: The Microsoft Surface Hub brings connectivity, access, and powerful multimedia power to students while Skype for Business supports communication and collaboration.
Situation: A leading institute in medical staff training needed tools that could work seamlessly with Moodle to create a more collaborative and dynamic work environment.
Solution: The school gained real-time collaboration, advanced communication tools, IT support, and a cloud-based storage space after integrating Office 365 and Moodle.
Situation: After a spike in crime rates, the campus needed solutions for a number of security issues.
Solution: INVID helped create an emergency button app, allowing users to notify the security office in an emergency and share their GPS location.
Situation: The aging technology of existing card access and financial transaction systems caused significant limitations on campus.
Solution: With Blackboard Transact, contactless multi-function readers and an easy-to-use card alternative help improve campus life.
