Dell Helps Schools Increase Access to Technology
Dell Helps Schools Increase Access to Technology

June 25, 2012 – Round Rock, USA  (Techreleased) – Dell launched today a new Dell Wyse solution and special offer that will provide more students with secure access to digital learning resources, and help schools concentrate less on managing their technology while providing more time for teachers to concentrate on what matters most – helping students reach their full potential.

The solution gives students anywhere in the school access to data and applications using a Dell Wyse thin client and from home using their personal devices. For school districts interested in supporting students using their own devices at school, the solution provides increased security while giving IT administrators and teachers more control over the school’s involvement in how students use their devices. IT departments can focus on enabling teachers and students to take advantage of blended learning approaches, not on managing devices. And with Dell Wyse systems’ zero touch management features, these low-power and low-touch end points eliminate hours of traditional basic support.
To help schools further simplify device management and expand student access to technology, Dell also today launched the new Dell Wyse E00 zero client—a zero-touch, budget-friendly, energy-efficient device that builds on the success of Dell Wyse E01 and Dell Wyse E02 zero clients. Enabling shared computing access for up to 15 students per server** using Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 software, the E00 can consume substantially less power than a conventional PC helping school districts make the most of their technology budgets. The Dell Wyse E00 addresses the need for affordable, secure technology that is easy to set up and run, while delivering a great desktop experience for students.

In addition to thin clients, Dell provides a full range of richly-configured client systems to meet the diverse needs of school districts, from the Dell Latitude ST Tablet specifically designed for use in education and healthcare, to the company’s award-winning XPS 13 Ultrabook. All of these systems include services and support that simplify use and management for students, teachers and school districts.
