New Education Cloud Solutions and Services

Dell launched today its Next Generation Learning Platform, which integrates core education applications, digital learning resources and learning data to help educators address specific learning styles. The new offerings provide educators, students, parents and administrators secure and integrated access to resources necessary to personalize teaching and learning and enable collaboration beyond the classroom.

The Dell Next Generation Learning Platform integrates core education applications and resources needed to address specific learning styles, collaboration and data-driven teaching in an intuitive and engaging interface. The platform brings together curriculum management, digital curriculum and ebooks, lecture capture and features tools for chat and collaboration. The platform accesses information from data management and student information systems to create a toolset for educators and their students. Interfaces are tailored for educators, students and parents with the features most important to each of them.

District and system, educator and publisher content can also be accessed within the platform through a Dell-provided content repository that allows educators, parents, administrators and students to search, find, share, assign and report across a series of open education resources.

Dell Education Data Management integrates student performance data with predictive analytics to make it easy for educators to monitor student progress and intervene as necessary to improve student outcomes. The data can be leveraged on its own and as part of Dell’s Next Generation Learning Platform.
