The heartbeat of the portal
The heart of the Portal are the private, secure 'rooms' that are created on behalf of teams working together. They deliver a raft of tools and apps to enable educators to collaborate efficiently. Tools can include, but are not limited to, shared document storage, private videoconferencing, instant messaging, notice-boards, shared calendars, task-management applications and so on.
Technology that doesn't get in the way
All rooms are accessed in your web-browser. Part of their power is that they are technology and systems neutral: Tablet or PC, Windows, Mac or Google - it doesn't matter. This means that collaboration can take place across different organisations without technology getting in the way.
Powerful video-conferencing software comes as standard in every room. No passwords. No complicated logins. Just click the link. Includes screencast, text comments and an audio only option.
A simple solution. No problem.
Delivering a training programme or event? Coordinating groups of Headteachers or Subject Specialists? Governors working together on a project? Finance manager and bursars synchronising their purchasing to drive down prices? PE teachers co-ordinating a programme of sporting events? Children collaborating with another school in a safe, secure environment? The Independent Schools Portal has you covered.
We have a number of go-to apps and tools that you can use, but our platform is completely flexible. You choose the tools you want to use and we will work with the developers to ensure that they work effectively and simply in your room. As educators first and foremost, we can guide and advise you to get the most from your collaborative space.
