The Digital Media Revolution

Due to the increased usage of digital media within schools, there is now a plethora of EdTech companies offering apps, software packages and platforms to deliver digital signage, digital asset management, classroom capture, digital learning resources and more.

Having a choice is great; however, the feedback we get from many schools is that there are an increasing number of platforms to manage, which is time-consuming and onerous. This is because most solutions are only designed to complete one piece of the jigsaw, creating a lack of cohesion, poor workflow, increased training and staff support requirements, and meaning that schools pay more for multiple subscriptions.

School Groups & Multi-Academy Trusts

Manage Your Digital Media Technologies Centrally

The scalability and customisation tools of Planet eStream offer significant benefits to School Groups and Multi-Academy Trusts; as one platform can serve multiple schools, everything is managed at a group level, and content between schools can be shared.

A group can also choose to devolve responsibility and enable each school within the group to manage its content—for example, digital signage content, digital media assets or classroom recordings. Essentially every school feels like they have their own Planet eStream platform with their branding and content. However, the overarching control still lies at the group level.
