Would your teachers like to be able to get to their files at school when they are not in the building?
Do your support staff need to get to some IT in the school building when they are at home?
Updata, have designed a service based on Norfolk schools’ feedback.
‘Simple, fast and reliable’ was the key message. So these are the ‘must haves’ we have designed our solution around.
Security is also important, so we will be offering to create up to 4 groups for each school (for example, Teachers, Students, Support staff) and you can choose the areas that each group will be able to see on their home page.
The user may access their School’s service using their Web Browser and entering either the Generic URL or Specific URL.
Schools Generic URL (e.g. https://schoolsRAS/)
School Specific URL (e.g. https://schoolsRAS/sunny01)
A school’s Generic URL provides a Welcome screen containing school dropdown, username and password fields. This is useful for a user who accesses different schools, for example in a Trust. The Specific URL Welcome screen contains just user and password fields, avoiding the need to select the school from a list.
The Gateway will authenticate the user with the school’s authentication service. If successful, the user is presented with their Group Portal page.
If you decide you want anything changed, there will be a simple process to request changes, via the ICT Solutions Service Desk.
Please email your request to email@example.com (copying in firstname.lastname@example.org) stating the number of teaching staff you have. Once you have accepted the quote for the service, a form will be sent to you to complete and start the process of implementation.
