In 2017, PRO ISP started a collaboration with computer studies at Haugaland high school. The collaboration means lower prices for hosting used for education.
The students can quickly start learning
Rune Karlsen, lecturer at Haugaland tells us: “Using the services PRO ISP provide ensure that our students can quickly start learning how to manage websites. It is important for us that the data is stored securely, services provided locally and that the server host complies to Norwegian laws and regulations. We train our students to run both local and external server. They should have knowledge of options available and what is more cost efficient, outsourcing or running the services in-house.
Relevant services for the students
PRO ISP focuses on automation of our services wherever we can. We also focus on standardization and quality control. It is important for the students that the services they are using is relevant and prepares them for the IT-community they will later be a part of.
“We have an ongoing dialog with the companies who provides apprenticeships for our students. They provide guidelines for what the students should learn before becoming apprentices. It is our responsibility as lecturers to interpret the benchmarks in order to create learning objectives” Karlsen tells us.
PRO ISP was recommended
“We were recommended PRO ISP by Hatteland Solutions who also collaborates with them”. Karlsen also tells us they want their students to visit Hattelands data halls so they can see with their own eyes where the data is stored, and how security is safeguarded.
“When using PRO ISP we know our students data is stored in Norway and complying by the laws and regulations here. PRO ISP also offered our students their services for a very resonable price. It was also a bonus that the students could easily take over the hosting/website after they finished school.”
A successful collaboration
Lecturer Karlsen is extremely please with the collaboration between his class and PRO ISP. The entire process of creating domains for the students, installation of other services was all done easily. He tells us the students said our services was intuitive and easy to use.
“I recommend this type of collaboration for all computer studies. Our students learned how domain, hosting, cPanel, integration of email with MX, etc is all connected. We would say it was easier for our students to learn about the connection of different technologies when using PRO ISP. We are very happy with our collaboration and will hopefully continue this for years to come.”
