World premiere at "Vrije Universiteit" of Amsterdam

On the 17th of  January 2013, the first 180 M2Desk-Flex units of total of 400 units are installed at "Vrije Universiteit" of Amsterdam. All together these M2Desk-Flex units are world's largest digital exam center. Even more unique is perhaps that the M2Desk-Flex units are powered by the 'Semi permanent Cabling' system (M2Desk-SPC is a retractable network). This high quality network provides the M2Desk-Flex units with power as well as network at the same time. The computers will be eventually installed under Windows 7 and have an average power consumption of 11 watts, which is equivalent to a total consumption (as all 385 units are in use) of 4,235 watts. Just over two vacuum cleaners. The units are equipped with the latest hardware, are completely silent (0dB) and produce negligible little heat. Read more about the M2Desk-SpC Concept

National university of Groningen purchased 300 M2Desk Flex units to make the first step to ‘digital examination’. The examination room will be used to let students made their digital exams up to 300 students at one time.The desire was to create one single room where paper and digital exams can be taken. Another requirement was that this room has to be multifunctional, besides the digital examinations, it has to be setup for lectures, computer classes and also for evening school. The university has done several studies without an appropriate solution. When M2Desk was presented it was obvious that it meets all requirements. After all departments have agreed, on 28th July the Executive Board of the university placed an order for 300 units through Bossers & Cnosser, a dealer of M2Desk. M2Desk Flex Model RUG.pdf

Every student with a his own multimedia student desk (IPON Congress)

  1. Location: IPON Jaarbeurs Utrecht Gele Theater

  2. Date: March 10, 2010

  3. Time: 16:00-16:45

In recent years, the so-called student-computer ratio remained stable at 1:6. This means that at a school, for every 6 students there is 1 computer available. The problem of increasing the number of computers has been, up to this date, the lack of space in a classroom. M2Desk is the solution that will bring the student-computer ratio to 1:1. M2Desk is a multimedia student desk with a computer integrated in the table top. With this solution every student will have, at every moment, access to a personal computer integrated in the own table top.

March 10 & 11, 2010
