Founded in 1910, Minnesota's Saint Paul College is a two-year technical college that offers 40 associate degree programs, 69 occupational and certificate programs, and various transfer programs to four-year universities. It needed to offer a secure, consistent teaching platform for students, to provide students access to computer resources anytime, anywhere, to help students achieve Java certification and learn about open-source computing, to deploy and maintain affordable computing solutions and to reduce education costs by creating textbook-free curriculum. Saint Paul College's computer science department deployed a secure, open-source, distributed computing solution that uses Sun Ray thin clients with the Sun Secure Global Desktop Software. The department is also using Sun's Project Wonderland as part of an innovative immersive virtual reality teaching project.
