Today’s higher ed IT managers must solve a number of unique challenges to support the needs of the modern classroom – whether students are learning 3D graphic design in a computer lab, or checking the latest exam results on their mobile devices. Faculty members are faced with a different set of challenges in delivering courses, depending on the complexity of applications required, especially for advanced computer science and engineering courses.

This webinar illustrates how VMware’s cloud based desktop solution will help you meet these challenges efficiently and cost-effectively.
