Configurations we've setup on the Scheme devices

One major factor which is included in the Scheme is the Imaging System.  This allows the School's Network Services team to create a pre-installed image that will be sent to BT/Freedom Tech to setup the Netbooks.  That image will also be used for any future wipes of Student Netbooks purchased through the Scheme.  This system cuts down the need to spend an entire day preparing just one Student Netbook when the Scheme could potentially have around 250 Netbooks.  The image is usually updated every 6 months but unfortunately there is no remote way to deploy these to the  Netbooks for updating.  The Students though are able to request the Netbook purchased through the Scheme to be re-imaged.  If Students do wish for a Netbook wipe simply ask them to pop up to Network Services, we recommend between 8am and 9am if they wish to use a loan.  This is also based upon how much time the Team have available.

  • Desktop Short cuts to popular sites/programs for ease of use.
  • Windows Updates turned on but will not download to prevent downtime and updating upon shutdown.
  • Favourites added to the profile for ease of use.
  • Administrator account automatically setup - Student/Parent can use to install or update software.
  • Standard Student account automatically setup - Allows protection for the Student and helps prevent Malware.
  • Outlook (Email/Exchange) automatically setup so Students don't need to logon to Web Mail.
  • Internet Filtering for Home on the Netbook, allowing same filtering level matching the School system.  September/October research period

IT Support

If a Student has any issues regarding a Scheme device, we are here to support it.

Typical issues we deal with:

  • Confirming failures for Warranty (Freedom Tech)
  • Confirming Insurance claims (Freedom Tech)
  • Rebuild (resetting back to factory settings)
  • Office not working correctly
  • Using correct accounts
  • Wireless not connecting
  • Touchpad not working
  • Software not updating
  • Random crashes

Please be aware that IT Support is extremely limited on Non Scheme purchases.  Any issues will need to be taken to an external IT Support company/repair store.

We highly recommend covering the device with Insurance and Extended Warranty.  The Insurance will need to cover day to day travel and usage in a School (please check exactly what it covers).
