Student collaboration up and IT issues down at Lake Superior College
Airtame’s simple-to-use interface and reliable performance made a huge impact on the IT department’s workload. “Before discovering Airtame, we tried all different kinds of wireless solutions. They all had their quirks and problems,” explained Ryan Schaefer, Network Administrator at Lake Superior College. “Before using Airtame we saw about 300 tickets per semester. After installing Airtame we’re dropped that by 75% to 80%. It was the solution we had been looking for all those years.”
In addition to being very cost effective, implementing and maintaining Airtame is easier and less time consuming. “Products like Airtame are essential to our goals for Active Learning,” said Steven Fudally, Chief Information Officer. “Students learn better when technology is easy to use and can accommodate their existing devices. We are thrilled that Airtame meets all of those criteria and is affordable.
Going wireless also had a significant impact on teaching. “It has changed my way of teaching because we no longer have the cables,” said Sarah Bustrom of the Mathematics Facility. “I can spend more time teaching and work with the students.”
