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.
Provide anywhere, any device access to embrace next generation mobile learning
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.
A mobile workspace is an always available, always connected, personalized environment that students, faculty and staff can take with them as they learn, work and study across devices, locations and networks.
The Citrix Mobile Workspace delivers this experience by securely uniting learning and productivity applications, desktops, files, and services into a single workspace that can be tailored to a student’s major or faculty’s department.
Students, professors, administrative staff and executives each have a single, instant point of access into every resource they require to have the best learning experience and improve education outcomes.
Educational institutions can centralize the management and delivery of Windows apps as well as student and staff desktops, with a high-definition experience even for graphically intensive apps. Seamless roaming across locations, devices and networks ensures optimal convenience and productivity wherever students, teachers, researchers and administrators work—even off-campus. Apps and associated data remain in the datacenter, helping to support compliance, data protection and student privacy. IT can simplify operations while ensuring 24 x 7 access to resources, providing better service at a lower cost.
Students and staff can securely access mobile, web, SaaS and Windows apps and data on any mobile device through an app store with single sign-on. Educators, parents and IT can ensure that mobile devices in the classroom are being used appropriately. New students, visiting professors and substitute teachers can be provisioned and de-provisioned in moments.
Files can be shared easily and securely among students, educators and researchers wherever they may be—even large images and videos, presentations and other bulky items. Secure storage and sync for files across all devices provide a convenient, efficient and user-friendly experience.
IT can optimize, secure and control the delivery of education apps, cloud services, virtual desktops and mobile services through a single management platform with granular policy controls, auditing, and reporting that help IT manage compliance, information governance and data protection.
