Recently, Shanghai Huangpu Education Information Center purchased 350 units of LatitudeTM E6400 and 50 units of LatitudeTM E4300 laptops for the teachers in the district.
According to Xi Lihao, Director of the center, they think Dell’s Latitude E-family meets their demands in three aspects. The high performance of the notebooks makes it easy for teachers to adopt multi-media, i.e. video, audio and picture, in the classroom, which dramatically improves the teaching quality. The long battery life allows the laptops run for three courses continuously without charging. Last, the light weight and stylish design make these laptops much more welcomed by female teachers who take the majority of the teacher population.
Huangpu Education has been a long time customer of Dell. They start their relationship with Dell from Dell’s desktops. Now the journey has moved to server and storage. The center built its education resource network and information network on Dell’s server and storage. The education resource network has integrated all relevant teaching sources, which makes it easy to share among teachers. The information network is not only a portal to publish information like recruiting, teaching and research etc., but also serves as an interactive teaching and learning platform between the teachers and the students.
“We have been very pleased with the overall performance of Dell servers. Dell products have great performance, are reliable, easy to manage, and well support our network application needs. In addition, the high value of the Dell products help us mange our IT budget better.” said Xi Lihao.
Empowered by Dell’s technologies, teachers in Huangpu District are saying farewell to “blackboard + chalk”. The education level of Huangpu District is moving to a completely new stage, with more interactive and rich classroom, teaching resources easy to share and an optimized IT management.
