Moulton College’s success is driven by growth and student outcomes. The Senior Leadership Team saw that increasing student numbers and course diversity would facilitate this growth and improve the student outcome.
Course content and feedback has historically been completed manually via paper based processes, so a more automated, accessible and intuitive IT platform was sought as a replacement.
Google Apps was the natural choice in terms of feature, function and minimal investment.
Adoption of the Google platform was seen as an opportunity to improve both student experience, and administrative and teaching efficiency whilst also increasing course availability. Moulton approached us to help ascertain what the school could achieve using G Suite for Education and where it could take them in the future.
They saw Google Classroom as a great way to reach more pupils and give lecturers more power over content delivery. They also saw the G Suite environment vastly reducing the time lecturers spent managing students whilst breaking down potential barriers for learning such as distance and language.
Haptic provided an excellent service from initial engagement, through discovery of our requirements, solution proposal, technical implementation, project coordination and user adoption workshops to ongoing support following go live"
Following a meeting to understand the Moulton College’s needs, we agreed to an ambitious timescale in which we’d have G Suite completely available for use to all users within a month.
A professional development plan was created for lecturers and tutors prior to launch to bring them up to speed and establish relevant links between existing MIS systems and Google services such as Classroom.
After establishing that the school had a very capable WiFi Solution in place, we then provided a set of G Suite Training sessions for a group of teachers who were to become the digital leaders at the school.
During the sessions teachers harnessed the abilities of Google Classroom to distribute resources quickly to students and keep them on task during lessons. They loved being able to take their existing content and quickly into lessons. In one instance a Teacher bought herself a Chromebook for use within her home environment.
A G Suite Domain was then set up for them to explore.
Working closely with the College, we then helped to replicate their current domain structure in the G Suite domain, making signing into G Suite simple and straightforward for everyone.
The Future For Moulton College
Moulton want to be a Google Reference Site and bring other school leaders in to show them how they flourish with G Suite.
Their ‘moonshot’ is to be a 1:1 school and give every child access to a Chromebook and the fantastic learning content that their teachers are delivering everyday. As their G Suite For Education Partner, Haptic are very excited to be part of this and support them in this vision and beyond.
