In most cases, opening a web browser will direct to a blank page or the previously closed pages. Now this is useful for personal use or for work. However, when it comes to school internet connections, a student startup page is more ideal.
Students need a lot of resources. From researching to ways to keep track with their requirements for each subject. From communicating with their professors to communicating with their peers. All of these can be done online but with everything that they already need to memorize, they will not be able to remember all of these online tools.
A student startup page aims to resolve this problem.
The concept is quite simple. When a student is connected to the institution’s network and opens up any browser, it will open a page specifically designed to provide students with most, if not all, the links to the resources that they need. This can include:
The sky's the limit when it comes to the startup page. Facilitators can include anything and everything the student may need. Specific subjects may have their own online tools which can be uploaded here. Communication tools, logins, and everything a student may need can be found here.
It is essentially a quick access page. A menu of all apps and programs of the institution. This can be very helpful as it helps in organizing everything a student will need.
Quick access and organization are the main key points of using a custom startup page designed for students. But there are other benefits as well.
On top of that, since this is the first thing students will open when they use their laptops, a student startup page is also the ideal place for announcements, news, and other important reminders. This is to ensure that all students are up to date with the right information that they may need for their studies.
It also helps keep students focused on their tasks at hand. It eliminates the distractions of having default startup pages that contain news and events unrelated to school activities such as international sports, gossip, and other things of that nature.
Safety and security are also helped by using a student startup page. By using the quick access links, students are ensured that they are visiting only the authorized and legitimate tools of the institution. This avoids accidentally visiting unsafe websites designed to infiltrate the personal information of students.
And when it comes to security, you can never go overboard with it. Using a startup page is a good start to ensure that the students visit only approved websites, but you can do a lot more in order to facilitate this.
In ensuring the safety and security of students, facilitators need granular control over the school environment. They need to have on and off-campus filtering of apps and websites. At the same time, they also need individual student settings for maximum flexibility and provide exactly what each student needs. This is what NuEDUSEC has to offer.
