Management Information Systems (MIS), Information Technology (IT), and computer science students need a better way to replicate learning environments. This is important as technology changes at a fast pace. More importantly there has to be a method to quickly replicate environments that match industry standards, professors‘ research labs, and other
environments. Software applications such as Oracle Virtual Box, or VMware Player can provide the learning environment in a virtual sandbox. Professors can develop a Virtual Machine
(VM) with all the coding examples, system configurations, test scripts, and more for students to work from for the entire course. This VM can be stored in a number of places with the ability to use any VM player at work, home, or at the institution. Gone are the days of institutions needing multiple labs for specialized software or different Operating Systems (OS).
