Get to Know J2E

A 1/2 day on this exciting online software for pupils


As schools purchase an increasing number and variety of mobile devices, linking them to the school network could be impractical. Software that is available from any internet connected device is an option to be seriously considered.

J2E is designed specifically for primary schools to give pupils an easy to use, yet powerful, set of creative tools that that works on PCs, laptops and tablets and provides all the useful features of an Office Suite.

As J2E is web-based, one of its advantages is that it is accessible to pupils outside school.

This course will provide an overview of the software and participants will work through a range of the software's facilities to create a curriculum focused multimedia document.

Whether you're an existing user who just wants to become more familiar with the software's features or are considering a purchase and wish to explore in depth before you decide, this course will prove very useful to you.
