Windows MultiPoint Server is a simple, cost-effective way for more students and teachers to gain access to the latest technology, improving learning and helping students prepare to compete in a global economy.
With Windows MultiPoint Server, a single computer supports multiple users at the same time, each working independently using their own monitor, keyboard and mouse and with a familiar Windows computing experience. Schools can provide more students with access to the latest technology, even with limited budgets.
Increase Access While Reducing Equipment, Energy and Maintenance Costs
More students and teachers need access to technology to get ready to compete for 21st century jobs, but many schools don’t have sufficient budget to buy the computers they need. Plus, finding money for ongoing maintenance and support can be a challenge. In addition, schools need innovative ways to get the most out of older technology investments that they have already made.
Windows MultiPoint Server is a great solution. With Windows MultiPoint Server, one host computer is shared by multiple users simultaneously, enabling schools to reduce overall costs 66% by saving on hardware, energy and maintenance. Schools can effectively triple the number of Windows computers without increasing budget.
Spend More Time Teaching and Learning
There’s nothing more important to a teacher than providing students with a personalized learning experience – not spending time on time-consuming, complicated technology. Teachers also need to be able to monitor student activity to ensure that computers are an effective learning tool in classrooms, libraries and labs.
Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 provides teachers and students with the latest and familiar Windows experience. And it gives teachers easy-to-use tools to orchestrate and manage students’ use of computers, to help students stay focused on their studies.
Gain a Fully Supported and Secure Solution
Schools need to ensure their systems are secure and working smoothly. Often, schools have few or no dedicated IT resources. Technology is dispersed throughout classrooms, libraries and labs as well as across several offices and buildings, making management especially difficult and time-consuming.
By providing schools with fewer physical computers and a single integrated point of management, Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 is much easier to manage and support. Simple setup and access to expert support by Microsoft and our authorized partners mean limited IT resources gain the confidence they need to manage resources effectively in a challenging environment.
