Getting Ready for Back to School - Fall 2023

From a technology perspective, “back to school” means a surge on your infrastructure. If everything goes well, students and staff will be able to move seamlessly and successfully through their day. If not, it takes a tremendous toll on the teaching and learning process.

Students are logging into classes using new tools and technologies that are interfacing with SISs and LMSs. Identity and security processes are in constant motion. The focus on a smooth start to the school year is top of mind at every level of administration.

Central IT can’t just cross their fingers in hopes of a smooth start. Technical hiccups and delays can severely impact student engagement, after all. And with the heightened focus on student persistence and completion, there is no appetite for technology barriers.

Unicon has supported clients through the back-to-school process for more than 30 years. Through those experiences, we’ve created a  set of “best practice” recommendations and procedures to mitigate technology hiccups before they happen, and quickly rectify them when they do. This means a full account of people, processes, applications, and infrastructure.

Feel free to contact Unicon if you have any questions or want help evaluating your back-to-school readiness. 

Make it a great year!
