PRLog - Apr. 12, 2011 - STUDENTS with learning difficulties and disabilities at New College Stamford can now learn at the same pace and time as their college counterparts, thanks to IT know-how offered by communication specialists Remark Group.

The Peterborough-based IT communications company already has a long-standing relationship with New College Stamford, and the latest installation is helping to further enhance learning at the centre.

Thanks to a state-of-the-art laser link that remotely connects the main college to outlying college buildings, a group of 55 students – who are based in special accommodation nearby – are now able to enjoy the same wireless connections, increased broadband width and other Internet benefits as the rest of the college, through the transmitted beams.

Rob Cottrell, IT manager at New College Stamford said: “We have been looking to install a dedicated device which linked the main college to the outlying buildings for a while, but never really found anything that fitted the bill.

“Our relationship with Remark Group led them to recommend, source, install and maintain the laser link that does the job adequately, cost-effectively and with minimal disruption to the students.

“It allows a group of our students with learning difficulties and disabilities to benefit from the flexibility of the same full IT services enjoyed by the rest of the college, but from the comfort of their familiar surroundings.”

Jim Newell, development manager at Woodston-based Remark Group said: “Education is a key area for us, and we are again delighted with the contribution we have made to New College Stamford and in turn, the educational well-being of its students.

“The IT communications and digital industry is constantly changing, and Remark Group pride ourselves on being able to offer all our customers – whatever sector they work within – the very latest technology to benefit their business or customers.”
