Remote lessons through Microsoft Teams
After the global confinement and state of emergency was declared in Spain due to the propagation of COVID-19, Plain Concepts set out to help the public schools in the Autonomous Community of Madrid, by enabling teachers and students to continue their education through remote classes via Microsoft Teams. To use Microsoft’s collaborative solutions to conduct classes and tutorials almost immediately, an environment for 670,000 students and 40,000 teachers was needed.
We have developed numerous scripts that have enabled the entire infrastructure to be deployed 400% faster than the usual tools. The environment brings together more than 700,000 users of Microsoft 365 divided into classes (groups of Teams according to each class) in which users can communicate and perform collaborative tasks.
The implementation of this platform has increased the use of the Microsoft Cloud 365 by more than 700,000 users. In total, we have enabled collaboration between teachers and students in more than 2,400 schools in an unprecedented short time.
``I want to thank Plain Concepts for the great work done with the education of the Community of Madrid. The effort has been worth it, and I am convinced that not only it will help us in this time of crisis we are living, but it will also give us a much more digital education and country.`` - Pilar López, Country General Manager at Microsoft
