Why Academic Software is the ideal choice for cybersecurity
Cybersecurity is on the minds of every IT professional working in the education sector. In response to serious and mounting cyber risks, universities, colleges and schools are having to put in place robust cybersecurity measures. In this context, cybersecurity protocols and certifications are also emerging that educational institutions are mandated to meet, for example the UK’s Cyber Essentials certification, or Spain’s National Cyber Security Schemes. And the EU cybersecurity certification framework is striving to bring cybersecurity certifications into alignment across Europe.
Face-to-face Training in the Digital Age
The Rector of the CEU Cardenal Herrera University in Spain speaks in his welcome of it being an "international university". He does not exaggerate. Whilst CEU Cardenal Herrera University is a small university with 9,000 undergraduate students and 2,000 postgraduate students, of those, 4,000 students were not born in Spain. The university attracts international students by highlighting its "academic model oriented towards excellence and the comprehensive training of our students". In other words, CEU Cardenal Herrera University, emphasises the value of face-to-face training.
Academic Software launches its new-look platform with exciting new features!
Academic Software is proud to announce the launch of its new-look platform, packed with extra features that will personalise your experience, and help you explore new tools and resources.
Communicating the transformative impact of Academic Software: meet Dawn
Academic Software’s mission is to have a transformative impact on education by breaking down barriers to the use of digital tools in schools, colleges and universities, and many of the Academic Software team bring experience of having working in education themselves. We spoke with Dawn, who was a university researcher and tutor before joining Academic Software.
The new-look Academic Software platform is here: personalised and streamlined
Academic Software, the platform that helps students, educators and researchers find the best tools and resources for their learning, research, and teaching, is proud to announce the launch of a new look. With a focus on personalisation, ease of use, and streamlined management, this updated version is set to revolutionise the way you access and manage your digital tools.
Streamlining access to digital resources with an approval flow on the Academic Software platform
Access to digital resources – software, learning platforms and web and cloud applications – is at the heart of education today, and we work to remove barriers to using digital tools in teaching and learning. However, in some cases it may be necessary to have approval steps in place to ensure resources are being used efficiently.
Smoothly navigate to Intune with the help of Academic Software
Moving from System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to Intune is well worth the effort for educational institutions, but it can be a challenging, time-consuming process. Academic Software can help you make the process smoother and faster.
Education and entertainment are compatible
Óscar García Pañella is academic director at ENTI and coordinator of the technology area of the recently established EUNEIZ University. He has conducted extensive research on the relationship between different areas of entertainment (games, social activities) and education. He believes it is not an oxymoron to say that a game can be serious and also educate and entertain. All at the same time. Why?
Getting the most out of user licences
One of the challenges faced by education institutions at the start of each new term is deprovisioning software licences from students who have switched to other courses or left. The good news is that the Academic Software platform automates deprovisioning, enabling you to reuse licences for other users.
