Course Tech 2013, Ron Carswell, Using Virtualization in the Classroom

313 views

Published on

Virtualization, an excellent solution for the classroom, balances the expanding hardware/software needs of
increasingly complex implementations that meet the expectations of the IT industry with budgetary constraints.
This session provides information on the methodologies implemented at San Antonio College in the Computer
Information Systems Department, and focuses on the virtualization products of Microsoft,Oracle, andVMware.
For beginning students, virtualization provides a stable environment to complete learning activities in the classroom/
laboratory. Intermediate students use virtualization to create “networks in a box”.Advanced studentsworkwith the
intimate details of virtualization to create “private clouds.”
