Citrix Education solutions address strategic campus priorities
 

Managing complex, multi-campus environments under unified IT

Education IT is constantly being asked to do more with less—less budget, less people, less resources. Today, every education IT leader is being pulled in multiple directions trying to balance the needs of students, faculty and staff while leading business changing initiatives. As education IT leaders, you are no longer just the team keeping the lights on. You are guiding innovation, impacting business results and improving the learning experience for students and educators.

Citrix helps educators and schools reach students wherever they may be learning, on whatever device they use, including bring-your-own device (BYOD), to improve performance, satisfaction and graduation rates. Teachers get the solutions they need to build a more relevant and applied curriculum, and measurably improve the quality of learning and completion for students of all backgrounds. Students gain 24 x 7 access to apps like AutoCAD, SPSS and Photoshop and other resources, including online tools to collaborate and engage with their peers.

Attract and retain top students, educators and researchers at a time when application rates are low and tuitions are high

As business leaders, you know new technologies can transform educational institutions and empower students, teachers and staff to reach new levels of success. By providing the latest cloud, mobile and social tools, your institution becomes an innovation hub that students, researchers and educators want to be a part of. When students have access to resources and can learn anywhere, at any time and on any device without the constraints of campus location, library and lab hours, you enable an environment centered on student needs and foster collaboration among instructors, colleagues and parents.

Protect the privacy of students and secure research data while maintaining compliance and continuity

Citrix education IT solutions offer powerful opportunities for every member of the educational community—if you know how to make it work. That includes ensuring a consistent experience for students, teachers, researchers and staff wherever and however they work, whether they’re using aging technology or the latest tools. While you want accessible, always on resources for your department, full security is essential to protect student privacy, research data, and even financial information and health records.

Education institutions rely on Citrix to deliver a secure, accessible Mobile Workspace that empowers next generation learning.

What is a Mobile Workspace?
