LAN Infotech Becomes Microsoft Authorized Education Partner To Support Educational Institution Throughout South Florida.
The modern classroom is becoming more and more dependent on technology – 75% of classrooms in the US rely on the use of desktop computers or tablets for their students’ education. As Microsoft continues to develop more and more powerful tools for users working in education, it’s vital that organizations have access to capable support from providers like LAN Infotech.
LAN Infotech has officially achieved status as a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP), confirming their ability to deliver Microsoft solutions to organizations in the education sector.
“Education is vital to our communities. Technology continues to play an important role throughout the education system and LAN Infotech is well-positioned to help schools and other educational institutions right here in South Florida meet their goals and educational objectives,” states Michael Goldstein, Founder, and CEO of LAN Infotech.
Educational institutions in South Florida face a number of challenges that Microsoft solutions like Microsoft Office 365 Education can help them overcome:
- Supporting The Classroom Experience: Microsoft Office 365 Education helps educators develop student-centered learning, with support for individualized instruction on a per-student basis, student access to intuitive apps like Word and PowerPoint to aid in the learning process, and training and professional development opportunities for teachers.
- Continuity Of Student Work: Making sure that information given to students doesn’t get lost or overlooked is an ongoing struggle for educators. Microsoft Office 365 Education provides a cloud-based, backed up platform for hosting data on assignments, projects, and any other information a student may need to keep track of.
- Centralizing Staff Communication & Collaboration: Microsoft Office 365 Education is also designed to support teachers, with Microsoft Outlook for communicating about and scheduling events and meetings, and OneNote and SharePoint for easy storage and access to shared project files.
- Maintaining Security Of Student Data: In an age when security breaches are more common than ever, it’s vital that students’ personal information is kept confidential. In addition to a comprehensive range of cybersecurity features (encryption, Multi-factor authentication) Microsoft Office 365 also includes Active Directory, which allows teachers and administrators to set access restrictions and manage user credentials.
Microsoft’s AEP program has been developed to train and test partners like LAN Infotech on how to best sell, deploy and support Microsoft Office 365 Education and other solutions for organizations operating in the education sector.
“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector. “This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”
