Cisco Meraki rated 5-Stars by the education industry

By: The Educator
ST LEONARDS, Australia - Oct. 4, 2021 - PRLog -- Cisco Meraki has been included in The Educator's 5-Star Service Providers 2021 Awards, recognising the cream of the crop in Australia's education service provider market.

"While COVID-19 has affected schools around the country in different ways, the pandemic has universally reshaped the way education is delivered. Schools have had to adapt, react and hike a steep learning curve over the past two years," says The Educator team. "In this report, The Educator celebrates 43 businesses which, through all the trials of on-and-off remote learning, have walked alongside schools, teachers and students to help ease the transition."

"All the 5-Star Service Providers – from school uniform suppliers and recruiters to learning management systems providers and software security experts – are giving schools value for money and enabling optimal use of resources, as well as making transactions as stress-free as possible. Whether they're offering online pastoral care tools or personal development programs for teachers, these providers are ensuring the best possible experience in difficult circumstances."

When pushing boundaries is part and parcel of an organisation's mission, the new frontier of remote and hybrid learning is relatively simple to traverse. This is the case for California-based IT company Cisco Meraki, whose cloud-based platform is helping Australian schools to maintain learning in an ever-changing environment.

When it comes to remote learning, screen-based distractions can be a problem for students – which is where Meraki Systems Manager comes in. This software enables teachers to lock managed iOS and Android devices to specific applications during lesson time, encouraging students to stay focused on learning. Apps can also be easily added or removed as required.

Security is another crucial consideration for schools worried about data protection and student wellbeing, especially in light of a recent report by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner naming the educa­tion sector as the third most likely source of privacy breaches. In this area, Meraki helps schools' IT teams to safely run the network from anywhere.
