Streamlined training & support
Three years after their rollout, Andreas’ technology team is happy to spend their time focused on facilitating technology-rich lessons rather than constantly updating and patching desktop software. As a result, Kenston’s technology team has been able to specialize in training and supporting one tool as opposed to many different tools.
For younger students lacking experience in design, the templates in Marq allow them to create professional-looking work in a short amount of time. Comparatively to feature-heavy software like InDesign, the simple drag-and-drop interface of Marq allows students to spend less time navigating complex menus and more time creating content.
In many Kenston classrooms, Marq has helped redefine old projects. Instead of the standard tri-fold poster common in science fairs, students are using Marq to make digital posters and displaying interactive presentations. “We don’t design for print anymore,” he said. “We just design for digital and publish straight from Marq.”
