The Digital Workplace Platform for Higher Education

Dan O’Farrell, Workspot VP of Product Marketing


Universities and colleges, as well as professional training firms, have trusted VDI technology for over a decade to enable and enhance learning experiences for students and trainees while helping to ensure endpoint device security, enable efficient control of physical classroom, lecture halls, lab environments, and training facilities, and to help protect student and staff private information. In higher education, VDI is proven to be very effective across the following use cases:

  • student and staff security and compliance
  • immersive yet highly controlled in-class and remote learning
  • staff and employee access to operational and curriculum materials
  • administration staff and recruiting personnel access to student data
  • temporary and contract workers, both on-campus and remote
  • digital signage in student unions, dining halls, and throughout campus
  • point of service (POS) in on-campus bookstores and e-commerce sites
  • training staff planning and curriculum development, on-campus or remote

With traditional VDI solution providers now straining to meet the needs of higher education and professional training firms due to costly and cumbersome technology developed over two decades ago, Workspot offers instant relief with a modern, cloud-native digital workplace platform that delivers the best of VDI without the glaring drawbacks that currently hinder traditional VDI which is showing signs of collapsing under its own weight. Great for virtual apps and desktops located either within on-prem data centers or in the higher education cloud(s) of choice, the Workspot enterprise digital workplace platform is surprisingly easy to manage and operate while offering consistently great digital experiences (DEX) for employees and students, up to “4 nines” availability, and 1-click recovery from any form of either natural or man-made disruption, including ransomware/malware attacks that threaten learning and operations every day.

In higher education and training, great “always on” end-user digital experiences (DEX) are key to maintaining immersive, fulfilling learning (including GPU apps in labs), happy students and staff, and strong optimal learning experiences both on-campus and remote. At Workspot, we’re proud to help universities, colleges, and professional training firms offer their best possible training with uncompromised security, compliance, and control.
