Designed for Education
Education Host’s Student Web Host Manager has been designed specifically for the education sector to provide full management of student web hosting accounts. Providing each student with a URL to access their work on the web. Full student management for lecturers and administrators and supporting key concepts, such as modules, courses, teaching locations and Azure Active Directory sign on.
Industry-leading control panel
At the core of the student web host manager, we leverage the industry-leading control panel – cPanel. Each user has their own cPanel account.
Allow students to register on their own, or bulk upload users. Our user onboarding routes provide the flexibility to fit in with the process that works for you.
The student web host manager interfaces with Azure Active Directory, meaning your students can use the same password that they log into their computers with.
Log into any student’s cPanel account through the management dashboard. Giving staff easy access to a student’s work.
Auto setup of folders for the modules that the student is taking. Ensuring lecturers know where the student’s work is when the module deadline hits.
Support for courses, which is a collection of modules. Each student is part of a course, which contains the modules associated with it.
Support for one or many locations to support teaching across locations. Offer different courses at different locations or at all locations.
Full module management capabilities. Includes module deadlines, providing the power to prevent students from changing files for the marking period when a module hits the deadline.
Teaching blocks are collections of modules that all finish at the same time. When the block ends, students are unable to access their cPanel account for the marking period.
Each user gets a free subdomain, which is associated with their cPanel account and is accessible through a web browser.
Module or teaching block agents run with the associated functionality to provide automated actions when a module or teaching block hits the deadline.
Onboarding users couldn’t be simpler, users cans either sign up through a registration route or be bulk uploaded by an administrator.
cPanel Control Panel at its core
cPanel is the leading control panel in the web hosting industry, which is why we’ve built our core around it. All students and lecturers on your white-labelled service will receive a cPanel account. The Student Web Host Manager then allows for full automation and actions for students and lecturers.
Agents that control automation
Our module and teaching block agents run in the background to provide automated actions on student web hosting accounts – when the module or block hits a deadline. Preventing students from continuing to work after the deadline. Accounts are then reopened after a defined marking duration. Providing time for markers to mark student work.
360° Student Account Management
Core concepts such as modules, courses and teaching locations provide 360° student account management. Students upload work to the modules they are taking (folders created on signup), lecturers assess the work via the student URL and markers mark the work within the marking period. Courses can be taught at one or many locations and modules can be pinned, core or elective.
Azure Active Directory Ready
Our simple sign-on routes leverage the power of Azure Active Directory to allow students to sign in with a password that is controlled by your policies. This supports MFA through Azure Active Directory in line with your policies.
