UCS@school extends the scope of functions of Univention Corporate Server (UCS) by an identity and access management that is optimized for the educational sector including import interfaces for teacher and pupil accounts from the school administration. UCS@school offers schools and educational institutions a platform for the central and efficient provision of IT and its inherent service and support processes to any number of schools.
In addition, UCS@school delivers educational steering functions for IT-supported lessons. The graphical user interface is very intuitive so that teachers can easily manage and control the use of IT in their classes. They can, for example, distribute study materials to pupils and collect them later, organize save class exams in computer rooms and restrict, if they need to, the access to PCs and the Internet. The access to printers can also be administrated and passwords of the pupils can be reset easily if necessary.
UCS@school can be adjusted to individual application scenarios via a large number of extensions from the App Center.
