Remote learning is where the student and the instructor, or information source, are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment. Information is communicated via technological applications, such as discussion forums, video conferencing, and online assessments.
A serene, peaceful environment is ideal when working, instructing, or learning from home or another remote location. While it cannot be guaranteed that school-age children will be quiet and still for the duration of the lesson, CHERRY offers products which keep noise to a minimum.
The GENTIX SILENT, quiet, no-click designer mouse, has been specially designed to promote quiet work environments while maintaining quintessential CHERRY quality and ergonomics. Students can work efficiently and quietly while benefitting from perfect ergonomics ideally suited for hands, both small and large. Especially if one or both parents are #WFH, annoying mouse clicks needn't disturb their work.
Comfort is key
Featuring an ultra-flat ergonomic top design, the CHERRY STREAM allows users to work in proper typing form, alleviating strain on the wrists and fingers, especially when working long hours each day. The layout is ideal for hands, both big and small, meaning school-age children will benefit from learning how to type correctly on a device that is both durable yet comfortable.
It is exceptionally robust, with a key lifespan of over 20 million presses, and can be used immediately as its Plug & Play capability means that no software installation is required. The STREAM also has 10 additional keys that allow easy control over volume, multimedia functions, and frequently used Office applications.

The remote classroom is only as good as the equipment used. Instructors and students alike will benefit from this wireless mouse's ease-of-use, and the integrated high-precision LED laser sensor, which allows the mouse to be used on nearly every surface, including glass tables.
Unlike other conventional mice, the CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED can be connected either with the supplied 2.4 GHz wireless USB receiver or via Bluetooth®. The connection types can be changed quickly using a switch on the base of the mouse. This allows, for example, a laptop to be connected via Bluetooth® and a PC to be connected via a regular wireless connection and both to be operated with the same mouse - ideal for instructors working remotely across various devices and teaching platforms!Elegant and beautiful, yet rugged and durable, the CHERRY MW 8 ADVANCED stands out with its anodized aluminum surface and rubber side parts. The compact, symmetrical design means that it fits snugly in the user's hand, and is perfect for both left- and right-handed users.
Style and durability
With the CHERRY DW 9000 SLIM wireless desktop set, the connection types can be switched in an instant using a switch on the mouse or keyboard. This allows, e.g., a laptop to be operated using Bluetooth® and allows a PC to be operated using the same desktop by means of a wireless connection with AES encryption. The data are transferred using AES-128 encryption in both cases.
The CHERRY DW 9000 SLIM features rechargeable lithium batteries that last for weeks of work. The mouse and keyboard conveniently charge using the micro USB cable included with the set, even while in use. A simple switch can turn off the keyboard and mouse altogether, to ensure that the rechargeable batteries hold their charge.
Students and instructors alike will enjoy the robust durability of the DW 9000 SLIM. The keyboard contains an integrated metal plate, lending it an optimal sturdiness and stability. Should you prefer a steeper angle while typing, you can adjust the keyboard using the 4 rubber feet included with the set. An integrated metal plate ensures high stability and prevents bending and bounding when typing.
Supporting students in developing basic computer skills and improving tech literacy is critical as we move quickly into a tech-based future. CHERRY offers solutions to encourage interest in technology by providing computer input devices that are easy-to-use, comfortable, and offer years of reliable service. And with a vast range of comfortable, durable, and easy-to-use mice and keyboards, students can easily transition into a productive remote learning environment.
