Education and the nbn® access network

Helping teachers and students choose how they teach and learn.

Choice really comes to the fore when the digital age reaches the classroom. Schools have the flexibility to implement the styles of learning that work best for their students. So it doesn't matter whether they work with devices in class, or they're connected to learning portals in the cloud and continue their studies at home, they’re supported with a service over the nbn™ broadband access network.*

Personalise the learning journey

Through one-to-one learning, not only could every student have access to a device of their own – but it’s possible to interact with students on a one-to-one level in real time, meaning their learning needs can be addressed continuously, rather than at assessment time.

Bring new knowledge into the classroom

Using video conferencing, expert resources on various topics are only a ‘phone call’ away, giving students access to a broader range of knowledge from around the globe.*

Expand the classroom into the cloud

Give students the ability to access their learning tools anywhere and anytime it suits them, by connecting these tools to the cloud. The same goes for teachers who can access the students’ personal work in the cloud - helping to answer questions and provide more personalised attention.

What the nbn™ access network can do for education

In a classroom-type setting, there could be hundreds of students trying to connect to your local Wi-Fi network – so you’ll want to consider what the strain on your network is likely to be. For real-time applications like video conferencing, a plan based on nbn’s wholesale Traffic Class 2 (TC2) products are recommended.

* Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ broadband access network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, signal quality, broadband plans and how your provider designs its network). nbn is a provider of wholesale speeds to service providers. nbn™ wholesale speed tiers available to your provider vary depending on the access technology in your area.
