Class and subject site

Class and Subject Site Automation

Increase pupil engagement by taking advantage of Office 365 collaboration tools such as Class Notebook, shared and individual document areas, discussions, assignments and much more.

Replace pupil shared drives with free SharePoint storage. Files in SharePoint can be accessed on any device using a range of mobile apps.

Using our trusted partners, we can create class collaboration sites and teams using the school's MIS system (such as SIMS, CMIS, iSAMS, etc.). Our subject and class site templates are fully bespoke to meet the needs of your classroom. This includes class membership access in Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook and groups for use with Microsoft Teams for Education.

Our templates look great and are responsive to work on mobile, tablet and desktop devices. Each design is unique for each school.

Our solutions are unique for each school and can even include employee onboarding (inductions), internal helpdesks, employee KPI/appraisal tracking and much more! We don't speak technical jargon and we make the process easy to understand.
