Luleå University of Technology Transforms Delivery of Education with Citrix®

citrix | August 17, 2022

Just like work, education today can happen anywhere. And students want the freedom and flexibility to choose where and how they learn best. Luleå University of Technology (LTU) understands this, and is using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) to tear down the walls of the traditional classroom and deliver a modern experience that empowers its student to learn from anywhere and perform at their best. “Teaching has become space independent. “We are a university of technology and we are expected to be at the forefront in using IT to provide a superior educational experience in the classroom, the dorm room and anywhere in between.” Daniel Ström CIO, LTU When the pandemic hit, LTU did just this, leveraging Citrix DaaS to create cloud-based workplaces through which teachers and students could access everything they needed to stay connected and continue learning. LTU’s students use 300 different applications, some of which require significant computing power traditionally provided by powerful workstations available in on-campus computer labs. And for students to continue learning remote - often using low-powered, personal laptops and other devices - LTU needed to provide access to these applications. It was a tall order. But LTU was able to fill it using Citrix DaaS to provide students with secure access to their desktops and applications from anywhere and Microsoft Azure to allocate the processing power and computing resources required to support them. “With Citrix, it was very easy for us to step up and make this available for all the students through their own computers,” said Lennart Isaksson, Head of Student Computer Lab Administration, LTU. And it was able to do it quickly, enabling full remote availability for 19,000 students in a matter of days. “When it comes to remote desktop use cases, nothing comes close to Citrix,” Ström said. Simplified Management One of the biggest advantages of Citrix, according to Isaksson, is the time saved in application management. “With the traditional PC model, it would take several hours to install all the necessary applications on each PC. And we have over 800 student computer lab PCs,” he said. “With Citrix, it’s much better. We have a single, base image with all the applications and we just replicate it to all the virtual machines that we are spinning up.” Enhanced Security Another key benefit of Citrix DaaS is the enhanced security it provides. “It’s a much safer approach than the traditional PC model,” Isaksson said. “All the apps are up to date and always available from any endpoint device.” Modern Education And of importance to Ström, Citrix makes it easy for LTU to keep pace with technology as it evolves and deliver the IT performance and experience that its students expect. “Young people today are raising the bar,” he said. “When you build a new computer lab under the traditional model, you get only 12 to 24 months when it is modern. After that, the students get less and less satisfied. With the Citrix model, we can add new machines in the background as the technology evolves, so the computer labs are always new and fresh.” LTU joins hundreds of educational institutions around the world who are using Citrix to transform learning.

ViewSonic to Build World’s First Citywide Education Metaverse in New Tapei

ViewSonic | June 30, 2022

The New Taipei City Government in Taiwan and ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, have partnered to promote UNIVERSE by ViewSonic, an immersive 3D virtual environment designed for education, to schools at all levels in the city. This initiative will benefit about 400,000 K–12 students. The two organizations inked an agreement of collaboration to help schools become digital learning environments following a successful pilot program at Long Pu Elementary School in New Taipei City. Additionally, this week, ViewSonic showcased UNIVERSE in New Orleans, USA, at the ISTE Live 22 Conference & Expo. "New Taipei City has been devoted to digital learning for years. We have observed that current online learning faces numerous challenges, such as a lack of interaction and sense of participation. UNIVERSE by ViewSonic simulates real-world interactions. Teachers and students can create personalized avatars to further engage with each other in this 3D space. Moreover, UNIVERSE can also be applied to cross-school teaching, thereby bridging the resource gap between schools. We look forward to having New Taipei City as the world's first city to adopt Metaverse for all levels of education, leading the way for schools all over the world in transforming how we teach and learn digitally." - Chang Ming-Wen, New Taipei City Education Department Commissioner "Current online education platforms still focus on unidirectional communication. It not only limits the development of interactive courses for educators but also makes it difficult to evaluate studentengagement during classes. Students cannot easily interact with peers and are prone to feel isolated. UNIVERSE by ViewSonic is the strongest solution to resolve these issues by making online learning feel as if it were in-person. Through the cooperation with New Taipei City, all teachers and students will benefit from the most innovative learning pedagogies. - James Chu, Chairman and CEO of ViewSonic Immersive virtual learning environments, including classrooms, lecture halls, and collaborative areas, are offered by UNIVERSE by ViewSonic. Emojis, chat messages, and realistic spatialized audio are just a few of the simple and user-friendly alternatives available to participants for various forms of communication. Teachers can project content, design pop quizzes, and separate students into breakout rooms for group discussions thanks to digital teaching aids. Teachers can also connect to ViewSonic's myViewBoard platform and use its cutting-edge teaching capabilities through the built-in browser.
