Encourage learning with digital processes
The RICOH Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE) Education Package simplifies processes for students and teachers. Across campuses, instructors and students are continually sharing information. Often, they use hardcopy formats — such as a handwritten brainstorming session, work for an algebra equation or a page from a reference book. Tedious workarounds make it difficult for instructors and students to include hardcopy information in their digital learning processes. The Education Package is designed to meet the unique needs of today’s digital- centric learning environments.
With the Education Package, you can:
- Convert hardcopy documents to editable digital formats
- Scan and send by email or directly into Canvas, Google Drive, Crowdmark and more from the ICE-enabled device
- Print your documents from tablets and smartphones
Benefit from information on paper
With the Education Package, instructors and students no longer have to choose between the hardcopy information they need and the digital convenience they want. Instead of re-typing documents one at a time, you can easily transform printed and handwritten pages into more usable digital information. Ricoh ICE converts scanned documents into multiple digital file formats — including Word®, Excel® and PDFs. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capabilities are built in, transforming hardcopy pages into practical documents that can be searched, edited and shared with those who need them.
Eliminate the workarounds
Traditional processes for uploading hardcopy material into cloud applications — such as DropboxTM and Google DriveTM or learning management systems like Canvas® — can be cumbersome and inefficient. With the Education Package, what was once a multi- step process of scanning, saving, emailing and uploading is replaced with one simple step. Just choose a location, file format and desired settings, and your documents will appear as digital files in your chosen cloud app account. When you can scan directly into the services your classroom uses daily, important information becomes instantly accessible and ready to use or share.
Scan directly to any of these cloud apps:
Simplify mobile printing & secure information
The majority of students on today’s campuses rely on smartphones. The Education Package makes campus mobile printing simple, enabling instructors and students to submit print jobs from their smartphones or tablets to any ICE-enabled Ricoh device. There’s no need to track down special print drivers. Just send an email to email@example.com with your files attached. Receive a security release code, visit any ICE-enabled Ricoh device and use the code to release your document for printing.
Say goodbye to having your information sitting around on the paper tray for anyone to glance at or even pick up by mistake. Because documents are only printed once the release code is entered, print jobs wait until you’re ready. Your print data is protected in transit to the selected device using 256-bit encryption, and each release code is valid for one week.
