Product Update Released

We have recently released a significant update to our product.

Here’s the media release….

 

Heropa’s Virtual Labs platform provides TAFEs and Universities with a fast, easy and secure method to create full-featured IT practice labs in the cloud. With the Heropa platform, organisations can increase student engagement and completion rates, while reducing the total cost of ownership. By using Heropa, students gain unparalleled hands-on access to virtual environments from anywhere.

“This latest release of Virtual Labs has a very strong focus on analytics.” said Jason Kinsella, Director at Heropa “One of the key messages we received from visitors to our stand at the EduTech conference this year, was that they all struggled to get access to accurate and detailed student activity information.”

He continued to say, “As education moves from classrooms to online environments, student engagement and completion rates significantly decrease. These dropout rates can be as high as 80%. Our latest release of Virtual Labs captures all student activity in real time and provides both online dashboard reporting and scheduled engagement triggers that are completely customisable. By exposing these granular student metrics to course administrators we have already seen significant increases in student engagement and retention rates by our customers. Heropa has always been very strong in providing students with an excellent experience, and now with the introduction of analytics on the platform, the course administrator experience is also greatly enhanced.”

Benefits of the Heropa Virtual Labs include:

  •     All aspects of the platform are fully managed to ensure each student has a secure and predictable experience. This allows educators to focus on teaching, and not the management of the underlying technology.
  •     Virtual Labs can be scaled to match teaching needs and student numbers. Learning organisations need never be restricted by physical lab environments again. Everything is done on-demand, in the cloud.
  •     Security risks are eliminated by removing the need to grant access to an organisations internal infrastructure from untrusted traffic sources. Every student environment is fully isolated and secure.
  •     Significant cost savings can be realised compared to physical infrastructure deployments by only paying for consumed resources.
