By enabling on-demand access to academic software anywhere and anytime, Imperial have been able to repurpose dedicated computer lab space into open-access learning areas. This has meant that students can use any managed campus device, and their own BYO devices, to access software anywhere on and off campus.
Thanks to this flexible approach to delivering academic software, Imperial College London have also been able to reduce and repurpose dedicated computer lab space in the heart of the UK's capital; one of the most expensive real estate markets on the planet!
This session will cover:
- The steps to, and challenges faced in, enabling BYOD
- Why their previous approaches couldn't achieve BYOD
- The benefits and reasons behind reducing lab square footage
- Using AppsAnywhere to deliver software on-demand
- Putting students first in your End User Computing strategy
