Extending the Capabilities of VMware View to Support Virtual Labs with Assistive Software for Disabled Students
Thursday, July 12, 2012, 9:00 AM PDT


Many educational institutions are turning to desktop virtualization to streamline desktop management and improve student access to applications and data across devices and locations. Virtual computer labs further allow campuses to reduce software license costs and free up space as applications no longer are tied to devices sitting in a specific classroom.
The University of Toledo has demonstrated that the benefits of desktop virtualization can also be extended to disabled students with learning disabilities or visual/hearing impairments. The University created the first-ever statewide virtual lab with assistive software for disabled students leveraging VMware View™ with seven different assistive software packages.

Attend this webcast with The University of Toledo and VMware to learn:

·  How University of Toledo set up the virtual lab with assistive software and what software packages they used.

·  How students are leveraging this technology today.

Featured Speakers:
Courtney Burry, Group Product Manager, VMware
Richard Suttles, Project Manager, University of Toledo
Angela Paprocki, Assistant Provost for Student Success, University of Toledo
