Often when working at school you wish you had a USB stick to take work home. With Remote Access you can access your work remotely from home using the internet. Not only can you access you work and transfer files but if you haven’t got a spreadsheet program at home for example then using Remote Access you can access the program through the school to use on your computer at home. You will need to download some files and follow some simple instructions. Read on below to find out how you could benefit from Anytime, Anywhere as well as solve connection problems.
