The infographic below shows how Imperial College London moved STEM apps to cloud.
Key takeaways include;
- Use of fixed machines (labs) decreased
- Number of first year students using labs decreased most dramatically
- Students favor external (off campus) access to software apps
- Access to software increases when labs would normally be closed
- Students provide more positive survey results
- Repurposing of real estate worth $10m
The use of cloud storage, Office 365 and Application Jukebox [AppsAnywhere] to facilitate a move to laptops has freed up space, improved student feedback, and changed and improved teaching. We now spend our time supporting students and not PCs.
