Al Noor Training Centre announces full WiFi access
Huawei and Enterprise Systems in partnership with Higher Colleges of Technology create connection for teachers and students.
The Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs has announced the deployment of a new campus-wide WiFi network which will connect teachers and students with the centre's digital learning platforms.
The network, which was rolled out by Huawei and Enterprise Systems will mean that teachers and students can access more advanced learning tools and platforms including a range of multimedia applications available on smart phones and tablet devices.
"We are thrilled with this new development at our training centre. It was long overdue. This is to allow our Assistive Technology Programme to be taken to the next level. It will make a huge difference to what we can offer our students." Said Isphara Al Khatib, director of al Noor Training Centre.
A group of final year students from the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) helped to implement the WiFi network as part of a wider initiative to provide more hands-on experiences for the university students.
"It is imperative that our students learn how things work in the real world and the ‘learning by doing' project gave them that opportunity. Crucially, it was also an important service to the community." commented Dr. Saoud al Mulla, director of HCT Dubai College.
HCT students attended a training workshop that allowed them to successfully install 42 WiFi access points that covered both indoor and outdoor areas.
