Overview: Everyone at Communication Square pulled back sleeves to help FAST NUCES, a prestigious university with five campuses across Pakistan establish digital learning solution to reduce the impact of COVID-19 interruption and ensure a smooth transition from traditional to online classrooms..
Solution: Microsoft Teams for Education
Communication Square is driven by its need to bridge technological gaps and helping companies adopt the Microsoft cloud without hassle. With COVID having forced schools to close their doors across the globe, the prospect of academic disruption in Pakistan motivated us to make a difference at this difficult time. The overnight dive into digital learning was an uphill task considering the traditional education mechanism being used in Pakistan. FAST NUCES, a prestigious university with five campuses across Pakistan, needed to establish digital learning solution urgently to reduce the impact of COVID-19 interruption. Due to the partial lockdowns, we resorted to remote demo of Microsoft Teams for over 45 participants of faculty and department heads of prospective clients. We submitted Scope of Work documenting the support services, core and advanced features of the proposed Microsoft Teams for Education solution.
There were several challenges that needed to be addressed professionally for a smooth transition to ensure educators could effectively adapt to online classrooms.
Communication Square iss dedicated to serving humanity, in our quest to conquer the bridge between technology and students, we were determined to provide the best solution to FAST as a model for others to follow. It was critical to get the all the pieces right for online learning to fight against the ongoing campaigns otherwise our students would be at a huge loss. We were determined to leave no stone unturned as it was crucial to get it right for others to be inspired to deploy Microsoft Teams. We had to communicate instructions to all stakeholders (management, faculty, parents, students). To address all of the challenges effectively, our proposed solution had to encompass all elements for a win-win situation that would cater to students and faculty.
Our solution offered the following key components:
