Tech and IT Partner to Develop VDI for Courses

Laptop sitting open on a tableThe College of Technology will collaborate with Wilmington University’s IT professionals to set up Virtual Desktop Integration (VDI) for courses in which students, faculty, and staff can benefit from the convenience of having access to specific software and applications without having to install those resources on their personal computers.

VDI delivers desktop images over a network to endpoint devices, enabling users to access their desktops from anywhere. The system provides an advantage over traditional PCs, where users utilize a physical device from an on-premises location.

One of the courses that will integrate VDI is CTA 326, Integrating Excel into Business Problem Solving. VDI will enable students in the course to access MS Excel virtually and ensure that all students and instructors are using the same version of MS Excel.

 Peter Lutus, chief information officer at WilmU, is leading the initiative, in collaboration with Dr. Anthony Carcillo, dean, College of Technology, Dr. James Fraley, director of Cybersecurity Education, and Tasha Jackson, chair of the Applied Technology and Information Systems Management programs.
