Free registration required

Executive Summary

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is a proactive and dynamic local university with 18 years of history. HKUST also aims to create a more collaborative style of education. To achieve this, the university needs to create more channels of discussion. One option would be to increase the number of computer labs on campus - a costly approach. As most computers in HKUST are Windows-based, the university chose Windows Server 2008 R2 to deploy virtual desktops so that students, with Windows 7 installed in their notebook or netbook computers, can use a remote desktop function to access the resources stored in computer laboratories. To obtain a model of student remote-desktop usage and needs, HKUST launched a pilot project in December 2009.
