Managed IT Services for Education

Better productivity, advance learning and safe mobile device management

Custom IT solutions for Education

At CMIT Solutions, we specialize in supporting the specific technology needs of educational institutions. We understand that most educational institutions are busy adjusting to the sudden changes in educational process, which has increased the need of right technology, while balancing the cost-cutting and compliance mandates. IT staff are stretched to their capacity balancing the demands of educational effectiveness, productivity, security and expense management. 24/7 security monitoring and support of IT infrastructure is difficult and costly for each educational organization on its own.

Luckily we don’t have to reinvent the model for each organization. Neither should quality IT support and security be too costly. That’s why CMIT Solution’s service model for educational institutions leverages its 25-year matured IT services delivery model and bring customized solutions to help organizations adopt quickly to the new environment and operate safely in a secured educational technology environment

The cloud-based solutions for education anticipate registering the highest CAGR growth of 5.7% between 2018 and 2026.

Benefits of cloud-based solutions are scalability, low investment, and increased storage space is increasing its popularity. 

Virtual instructor-led training  will experience the highest CAGR of 5%, which imposes both productivity and security challenges for the sector

Our unique experience to respond to the challenges of the educational technology

Educational institutions are under pressure to improve educational standards, modernize courses to prepare students for a fast evolving world and balance economics and internal constraints at the same time. Rapid technological advances are constantly changing the goals, success criteria and delivery model of education. For example, cloud, mobile, data and analytics, virtual and augmented learnings are inextricable parts of educational technology that educational institutions did not have to deal so much with a few years ago.

As a result, there is a growing need of specialists on-demand model, which can neither be fulfilled by internal IT alone, nor can most educational institutions hire so many technology experts in all the required specialization areas.

The solution is an on-demand scalable model, where a capable IT support partner can bring the required experts on demand, while delivering day to day technology support with a dedicated team for 24/7. This model is both economically efficient and operationally flexible compared to an in-house model.

Latest Education Technology Trends

As technology is rapidly evolving and changing the way organizations work, it is creating the need of transformation in education to prepare students better for the real world. Technologies like remote learning and online universities have existed earlier, but post COVID-19 realities have pushed these frontiers by many years in a few months.

As schools are opening across the country with opt-in for virtual attendance, educational institutions will be stretched to run educational programs that maintain parity of between classroom and virtual sessions in a productive, secured and economic manner.

Efficient use of technology can help solve many of these challenges but among myriad of emerging technologies, selecting and implementing the right technology could be complex and time consuming. As per Gartner report, over 70% of the enterprise level transformations do not deliver targeted value for this reason. Our experts can help you navigate this complex landscape and realize tangible benefits at a predicable cost

Remote Learning

  • Although remote learning is not new but post covid19 it has changed exponentially, most of the schools will make much greater use of online tools
  • Online tools will be helpful in complementing in-person instruction—instead of a replacement for it—allowing teachers to focus more on engaging students and mentoring them

Adaptive Learning

  • IT aims to emulate and support the talents of great educators to provide the best possible learning experience for every single student
  • If you’re looking for quality tools, most of the top adaptive learning technologies feature online learning, personalized plans, micro learning and more

Data and Advance Analytics

  • Big data and advanced analytics help you to collect on student surveys and faculty research
  • All this data can be harnessed, analyzed, and put into practice to engage students, increase enrollment, and improve retention rates

Mixed Reality

  • Mixed reality – a spectrum between augmented reality and virtual reality .MR, in particular, is suited for experiential learning
  • It can enable users to visit places they might otherwise not be able to access, such as art museums, archeology sites, a refugee camp, or Mount Everest, as well as entirely inaccessible places, such as onboard the Titanic, the Mesozoic
