Key takeaways include;

  • Use of fixed machines (labs) decreased
  • Number of first year students using labs decreased most dramatically
  • Students favor external (off campus) access to software apps
  • Access to software increases when labs would normally be closed
  • Students provide more positive survey results
  • Repurposing of real estate worth $10m

The use of cloud storage, Office 365 and Application Jukebox [AppsAnywhere] to facilitate a move to laptops has freed up space, improved student feedback, and changed and improved teaching. We now spend our time supporting students and not PCs.
