Desktop Virtualization for K-12 & Higher Education
Integrating technology into the classroom is an exciting endeavour which holds massive amounts of potential for students and teachers alike. Supporting BYOD and blended learning, incorporating in-person lessons with online lessons, providing chat and Web-enhanced lectures, and simply extending learning beyond the classroom into the Internet environment enables schools with the ability to deliver on their responsibility of giving students the confidence and skills to use and succeed with technology.
Achieving More with Less
Virtualization, a shared computing strategy that maximizes efficiency by harnessing the computing power of underutilized PCs is an excellent way to bring classrooms and labs into the 21st century, in a simple and cost effective manner. Simply stated, virtualization allows you to achieve more with less by simplifying management, allowing for blended learning and collaborative technology use and by facilitating incremental rollouts.
