BYOD and college-licensed software inquiry
We’re currently seeking options for a BYOD initiative to allow students to access college-license software. We investigated this a few years back and ran into a budgetary hurdle with the cost of licensing (specifically Windows and Office). We’re approaching our our budgetary planning months and the question has come up again, so I was wondering if some other institutions might be willing to share their experiences with me.
Do you have a BYOD initiative for students?
If you do, what solutions do you have in place? (We initially envisioned using VMware View to make virtual desktops available to students, but we’re open to alternatives)
Other than software licensing, are there any major hurdles that you encountered?
Are you satisfied with how your solution performs?
Is it getting the level of utilization that you expected?
Thank you for your time,
