Acer for Education has partnered with learning tools platform developer Skooler, to enrich its offer for the education market.
Thanks to this partnership, Acer for Education will enhance its portfolio dedicated to schools and education organisations with a complete solution that brings together Acer devices, Office 365 for Education suite and the fully integrated learning management tools provided by Skooler.
Acer for Education and its channel partners will be able to further support schools and educators across the EMEA region with an end-to-end solution designed to make learning more effective and engaging by helping teachers to save time and get better outcomes. Using Skooler’s tools such as Planning, Assignments, Assessments and Gradebook, teachers can improve their digital work flow, organise their materials online, define and share plans with other teachers, easily create assignments and have good assessment practice. With Skooler’s Parent/Guardian Portal and mobile app parents can stay in touch with the school and keep track of how their children are doing. It enables teachers to build stronger relationships with families in support of better education for their children.
Skooler Learning Management Tools for Microsoft Office 365 completes Acer’s offer for the Windows ecosystem. Being hosted in Microsoft Azure, Skooler ensures a seamless experience as users don’t have to jump back and forth between different logins and applications, school management functions and lesson planning, teaching or parental communication.
“Skooler’s mission is to make school life easier for students, parents, teachers and school leaders,” said Tor Ove Henriksen, CEO of Skooler. “Building a collaboration partnership with Acer and their key education Solution Centres will allow us to jointly expand our reach into many new countries and opportunities. Skooler’s unparalleled integration of learning tools in Microsoft Office 365 and its world-class Teams collaboration tool, allows us to support all learning workflows from kindergarten through high school, both inside and outside the traditional classroom setting. We welcome Acer to the Skooler Partner family.”
Massimiliano Rossi, Acer EMEA product business unit vice president, added: “Thanks to the partnership with Skooler, we will be able to offer a seamless all in one solution to our education customers. A solution that will contribute to better integrate technology into everyday school life by placing workflow, planning, assessment as well as school-home communication all in one place.
“Our mission is to bring innovative technologies to schools supporting educators to create the learning environments where students can develop the skills they need for their future. We believe that our collaboration with Skooler will provide educators with the right technology to make such learning environments real and will add another piece towards achieving our mission.”
