RELEASE: Intelligent educational solution "Cinco Unos" for a digital educational community (2)

SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 18, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- By Huang Yu, Education Solutions Expert at Huawei Enterprise Business

Education is getting smarter. Teaching, scientific research, campus management and school services are undergoing profound changes:

In the face of such profound changes in concept and form, the industry is actively exploring the deep integration of ICT and education. Technologies like knowledge graphs and big data make learning more personalized, while 5G and the cloud make hybrid learning more accessible. Scientific research demands on computing power and storage are increasing. These successful practices have stimulated the sector's interest in the application of ICT. However, new problems such as scattered construction, repeated construction, data silos and outdated ICT infrastructure are also emerging, severely restricting reform. How to best use ICT to update and innovate educational models is an urgent challenge for all industry players.

Renewing Smart Education with ICT

As a world-leading ICT solutions provider, Huawei believes in people-oriented education. We are committed to integrating ICT such as cloud computing, big data and artificial intelligence throughout the educational process to promote innovation in teaching, scientific research, management and services. Specifically, Huawei's Smart Education Solution uses advanced ICT to deliver intelligent interactions, connections, platforms and applications to support customers in their digital transformation.

During the digital transformation process, educational administrators must develop centralized plans and high-level guidelines and then implement them step by step. At the national level of China, policies such as the Medium and Long-Term Development Plan for Education Informatization (2021-2035) and the 14th Five-Year Plan for Education Informatization set differentiated informatization goals for higher, vocational, and , basic, preschool and adult education. These policies coordinate the configuration of the computerization environment, including the network, cloud platform, content, and computerization standards for education, as well as corresponding policies and regulations. Universities and vocational schools need to invest manpower, financing and much more to plan informatization roadmaps according to their long-term plans. When it comes to basic education, primary and secondary schools typically lack strong ICT capabilities. Therefore, educational management departments should take the lead in providing more platform and application support so that schools can focus on building common ICT infrastructure.

Based on our ICT capabilities and industry knowledge, Huawei proposes the concept of "digital educational community." We seek to use this to create connection and aggregation of educational resources in all settings, as well as openness and collaboration in all dimensions. The concept will help consolidate full-cycle operation and maintenance and continuous evolution with advanced cloud, network, edge and device technologies.

Huawei has built the "Five Ones" intelligent educational technical architecture: one screen, one network, one cloud, one platform and one portal.

A display is the terminal interface for human-machine interaction represented by various display terminals, including PCs, tablets, digital conference terminals, smart boards, and large LED screens. In different scenarios, there are matching intelligent interaction terminals to collect and display information based on the requirements of each educational subject. "A screen" is as important to smart education as a key is to a lock; opens the entire system to the user.

A network supported by new technologies and applications is needed to better drive the transformation of teaching, school management and services. Today networks are not only connected to mobile phones and computers, but also to IoT terminals and smart devices. Building on technologies such as 5G, optical networking and Wi-Fi 7, Huawei integrates wired, wireless, office and IoT networks to connect campus networks, education MAN, education and research networks and the Internet. This builds a secure, stable and intelligent network, improving the service system support capacity and user experience.

Huawei builds a smart education cloud with centralized standards and services to integrate learning, teaching, scientific research, assessment, management and smart campuses for a smart educational environment where everyone can learn anytime, anywhere. In this way, the quality of teaching and learning can be greatly improved and we can provide everyone with equal access to quality educational resources.

A platform is a public education digital platform that supports intelligent applications for teaching, scientific research, management and services. Share data across clouds, networks, devices and systems, breaking down data silos. This platform enables agile innovation of educational services and optimizes the synergy between cloud and devices to connect physical and digital spaces for smarter educational data governance and services.

The campus intelligent operations center (IOC) and super application are integrated into a single portal for centralized operation and management. It functions as a one-stop shop for teaching, scientific research, management and services. Through IOC, school leaders can stay abreast of campus status and conduct refined management, while logistics, security, information and other departments can enjoy more centralized, automated and intelligent operation. The super app creates a unified smart educational portal to connect people, events and things so that users can access multiple cloud applications conveniently through a single app. Universities can build a mobile campus portal based on the super application to provide mobile terminal services that can cover work, learning and life, meeting the goal that anyone can learn anytime, anywhere.

Working with industry and advancing smart education

To date, Huawei has served more than 2,800 ministries of education, universities and research institutes in more than 120 countries and regions. More than 30 of the top 100 universities in the QS World University Rankings have chosen Huawei as their partner for digital transformation.

Looking ahead, Huawei will continue to deeply interact with the education industry and flexibly integrate big data, artificial intelligence and cloud with educational scenarios to develop scenario-based solutions with partners and drive high-quality educational development through digital transformation.
