How Remote Desktop Can Help With E-learning

World Teacher’s Day 2020 AnyDesk

World Teacher’s Day, Initiated by UNESCO

On the 5th of October, we celebrate World Teacher’s Day – a day on which teachers all over the world are recognized for their commitment to education. According to UNESCO, the goal is to draw attention to the responsibilities teachers face and to increase the reputation of teachers worldwide.

In recent years, education had to change drastically due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and there was no shortage of challenges for teachers to reach their pupils during periods of mass shutdowns. And, with online learning becoming a reality overnight, an array of questions on how to make digital homeschooling easy for everyone emerged.

How can knowledge be conveyed digitally? Can the learning process take place online? How can we ensure that all students have the digital set up needed? Thankfully, though, AnyDesk Remote Desktop Software offers many features that can help to make digital education easier and more efficient.

How AnyDesk Can Help Educational Institutions With Distance Learning

On-Screen Whiteboard and Remote Desktop

Whether it’s math, English, or German class, writing on the board is always at the core of the classroom experience. The good news it that this can be easily transferred to the digital world with AnyDesk. With the help of the software, students can connect to their teacher’s computer as they show a presentation.

With the provided On-Screen Whiteboard, students can make notes in real time. Another advantage is that each student can take screenshots to go over later, and concentrate fully on the lesson.

Once the students are connected to the desktop, the teacher can use multimedia content to support the lesson, such as pictures, documents, and even videos that run without interruption even at low bandwidths. And, once worksheets have been completed, individual feedback can be provided.

File Transfer and Remote Printing

With the File Transfer feature provided by AnyDesk, files can be easily shared with other computers – no matter the size of the document. Additional platforms or storage devices are not needed. That way, teachers can easily send their students exercises and answer sheets.

If necessary, students can print out documents directly at home without prior file transfer using AnyDesk’s Remote Printing feature. The same applies to teachers who need documents that are saved on their school’s PC.

In that case, the teacher can easily connect to their school PC and send the required document to their local printer at home. Imagine never having to worry about which file you need at home because you have access to it anytime, anywhere.

Virtual Workplaces

Not every student has a powerful computer or a good internet connection at home, which can limit their learning experience significantly. With AnyDesk, this is no longer a problem. Students can connect to a more powerful PC remotely via AnyDesk and use it as if it was right in front of them.

That way, the school can provide the configuration that is needed for optimal learning to their students. The good thing is that even if the internet connection is bad, AnyDesk Remote Access Software offers low latency and reliable connections thanks to its innovative technology.

With AnyDesk virtual workplaces, the school ensures no student lags behind because they don’t have access to the ideal technical equipment, and every student has the opportunity to use the software and devices they need.

Studying Together Online

It’s difficult to study together when everyone is in a different place and when it’s not possible to meet up in person. In those situations, learning in groups seems unfeasible – but not with AnyDesk. The same way students connect to their teacher’s PC, they can connect to each other’s PCs, too.

Whether they are preparing a presentation, working on their tasks, or helping another student use a software, all of this is possible with AnyDesk.

Why AnyDesk Is Ideal For Schools

The pandemic and its aftermath showed that a future without Remote Desktop Software is truly unthinkable. Students are preparing today for a future professional life that will require them to be familiar with all forms of technology. Because of its intuitive design, quick start up, and boundless features, AnyDesk is the ideal solution for all users, at any technical level.

Despite the numerous possibilities AnyDesk provides to make distance learning easier and more efficient, the software still remains affordable for educational institutions, with licences starting at €9.99 per month. Contact our sales team if you have questions or if you need guidance finding the best licence to fit your school’s unique needs.

We at AnyDesk wish to thank the dedicated educators across the world. We are proud to support your work in shaping the leaders of a brighter tomorrow.
