October 13


After two years of remote learning, educational institutions see the many benefits remote access technology has brought to their students, faculty members and IT teams. Even as they return to the classroom, colleges and universities plan to carry those benefits forward and take hybrid learning to the next level.

As higher education institutions look to mature their approach to hybrid learning, they need a remote desktop solution that ensures a seamless education experience for students and faculty, no matter where they are or what device they’re using.

The result? True technology equity, providing universal access to classroom instruction materials, computer labs, apps and much more.

Join us on October 13th for this comprehensive webinar on the latest in remote desktop solutions.

Our panel of higher education leaders and national experts will cover a range of hot-button issues, including:
• How to incorporate today’s most innovative technologies for a more enriched higher education experience
• What specific capabilities to look for in a cutting-edge remote desktop platform
• How to create a secure, consolidated and flexible IT ecosystem that can support your university’s evolving needs
