Symantec Education Services is proud to announce that our training courses will now be available on tablets.
This new wave of technology removes printed training material from the classroom and provides that same material electronically to students via a tablet, which Symantec will provide for the duration of the class. PDF versions of the textbooks are transferred to the classroom tablets. The students can annotate their documents and transfer the files to their home office at the end of class. No need to lug around a textbook anymore! Another fantastic part is we are cutting back on paper which in turn made the course much more environmentally friendly and cost effective.
We have received positive feedback during our pre-launch of this new project.
The mix of Symantec staff and customers who attended the course gave very positive feedback, even though none of them had used a tablet before.
Abhijeet Kakade, the Symantec Senior Instructor who taught an initial class, said, “Speaking as an educator, the tablets made a world of difference. The students really enjoyed the benefits the tablets made to the overall learning experience.”
The decision to bring tablets into the classroom was carefully planned and researched over the last year. Most of our classes globally will have this new technology available.
This paperless class demonstrated that we aren’t just talking about how the strategic IT trends are changing the world, but how Symantec is at the forefront of what is going on today and in the future.
