This presentation will describe the efforts under way at a large research university to utilize application virtualization technology to greatly enhance student access to university-provided software applications. The University of South Florida has an enrollment of almost 50,000 students. Facing space and budget constraints, along with growing student use of mobile consumer technology such as laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones, institutions of higher education must look for ways to enhance student access to IT resources on a 24/7 basis. Assessments, feedback, and recommendations will be shared and discussed.
