NRG - Offer a new way of learning


Firm offers new way of learning

A Rochdale Company is leading a virtual revolution in schools across the country.

NRG TELECOM Ltd has created new online software which offers schools an innovative way of learning.

The new technology offers pupils and staff a complete VIRTUAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT (VLE), where pupils can complete and email work to teachers from home.

They can chat to friends safely through a series of password-protection online rooms and read book or film reviews posted by other students.

Jonathan Brierley, from NRG Telecom, said that the software, which is being used by schools nationwide, "encourages homework and innovation from pupils".

He added " The VLE is intended as an aid to learning and a way to lighten the load for pupils and teachers"

The concept is not only fun for pupils but also environmentally friendly because it reduces the amount of paper used in schools each day.

A display at the recent BETT show in London, the world's largest educational technology event, created enormous interest and the company is keen for local schools to take up the software and enter a virtual age.

Savings For Plymouth High School

NRG have been involved with PHSG and the development of a unique version of a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), 
however, the school thought they would also take advantage of their key business in telecommunications.

Pete Neve the deputy head of PHSG asked if NRG could give them advice on making any potential savings that 
could be made for the school on their mobile and landline costs.

We analysed their last 3 months bills and have made them a significant saving of £2800 per year. 

The deputy head - Pete Neve said " it was a simple process. We provided the bills and NRG managed the rest. 
PHSG have seen the benefits already of the savings and thanks to NRG we have now been able to allocate these
savings to other areas of purchasing for the school."
