With a mixed environment of Windows, PCs, Macs and an increasing number of iPads, Clifton College needed an easy-to-use system allowing pupils and staff to access and save network files from their iPad.
Senior IT Network Manager, Edd George, recognised the potential of the Foldr
access system as soon as he saw it demonstrated at a Western Computer Educational Day.
“I’ve now recommended it to schools nationally. It’s very easy to install and the pupils don’t even need to ask the IT department to set it up. It’s very useful for the iPads and having a web-based option gets round the problem of remote access for teaching staff. Previously files had to be emailed backwards and forwards.”
As an independent school with 40% of pupils boarding, access to work files in all areas of the school is very important to the college. Other benefits of Foldr
have been the ease and speed at which videos and images can be uploaded, multiple file uploads and the ability to preview files before downloading.
