GenED for Victorian Schools: NEC Education Platform for 21st Century Learning


From the beginning of 2014, NEC will launch GenED v4.0. It will retain the core Ultranet functions that support 21st century learning whilst introducing improvements to take GenED to the next level.

GenED is the result of a multi-year partnership between the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and NEC. NEC has created a robust platform which teachers, students and parents are using to achieve increased engagement and improved educational outcomes.

Some of the recent wins experienced by schools that are using the platform include:

  • Removal of paper-based report cards and stressful end-of-semester teacher administration, through the introduction of real-time reporting
  • Improved parental & student engagement through real-time observation and immediate three-way feedback
  • A contemporary, user-centric interface with significant improvements in the system’s speed and reliability
  • Safe and secure environments for school communities to collaborate and share information and content.

And there are more enhancements planned. From the start of the 2014 school year, we will also introduce the following improvements:

  • Student and timetable data uploading directly into GenED removing the reliance on CASES21
  • A simpler admin portal that will allow schools to easily add students missing from a class or teachers to reset passwords in the classroom
  • A mobile app for parents that pushes notifications about their child’s learning and other school information to their mobile device
  • Ability to generate real time reporting and hassle free production of end of semester report cards for F-12.

The improvements won’t stop there. NEC will continue to invest in GenED and develop further releases during 2014 and beyond. Enhancements will be prioritised based on user feedback and include more mobile apps for teachers and students. We also have a team of experienced educators who can help your school with the professional development necessary to get the most out of your ICT investment.

Watch the difference the platform is making in these Victorian schools.
