In our September edition of LTS News we described both our Mobile Computing Initiatives and our Windows Lab Virtualization. In this fast moving environment, we've seen rapid deployment and continuous improvements in both of these areas. A few updates for you:
Our UWEC Mobile has received several upgrades as more features are added, and these upgrades will continue. Check our webpage at http://www.uwec.edu/mobile.htm for descriptions of what is available and links to the app for various devices. Check back often as upgrades occur frequently!
Lab Anywhere is the name of our virtual windows lab which can be accessed from Windows, Mac, iPad, and Android devices. We've been told it has a much "snappier" response time compared to other virtual environments people have used. If you've tried (and rejected) a virtual environment in the past you should try this new environment as it uses different technologies compared with prior pilots. Over 800 individuals have tried this new tool, and it is gaining popularity. Check out the Lab Anywhere web page at http://www.uwec.edu/LTS/services/labanywhere.htm to see a complete list of available software, link to Online Help for various software platforms, and a brief instructional video. New applications are being added when requested and available.
