For the Branch Campus education desktop project, total 200 E-VDI licenses for 100 terminals in computer classrooms and 100 for teacher office. 

Some Branch Campus teachers have their teaching class in other district, so these 100 teacher’s virtual desktops must be accessed via internet; 

For the 100 terminals in computer classroom, teaching requires multiple desktops for different courses, multimedia software for screen and video broadcasting.

Software installed in virtual desktop:

Adobe Flash Player, Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, WinRAR, Microsoft Visual C ++ 6.0, Dreamweaver, VC/VB/VF6.0, video audio player, PDF reader, input method, network multimedia teaching system.

Benefit 

1. OS-Easy E-VDI console can easily create teaching desktops for different courses in minutes. Moreover, different teaching desktops can be switched as required according to curriculum plan.

2. In addition, restored "Teaching Desktop” for class, unrestored “personal desktop" for teachers to save data which can be accessed anywhere, anytime. It helps teacher to login for courseware preparation in office and access this courseware desktop in class for mobile teaching.

3. Desktop resources can be dynamically assigned to different classrooms, and achieve screen and video broadcasting among virtual desktops.

4. Remote manage server cluster through management console, monitor desktop and client terminals.
