Why choose virtual computer labs for education

If you are wondering whether a virtual computer lab is the right choice for your college, here is some useful information for you.

There are several reasons why an educational institution might choose to use virtual computer labs for education:

1. Convenience: Virtual computer labs can be accessed from any device with an internet connection, making it convenient for students to complete coursework from anywhere, at any time. This is especially helpful for students who may not have access to a physical computer lab on campus, or who may need to work outside of regular lab hours.

2. Compliance: The virtual computer lab platform that eduLAB provides comes with progress monitoring functionality for learners to take evidence of their work, which allows lecturers to see the progress of learning. Furthermore, lecturers can monitor the attendance of the lab activities and help students in real-time by accessing the student’s lab environment.

3. Access to selected/specialised software: Virtual computer labs can provide students with access to selected/specialised software or operating systems that may not be available on their personal devices. This is especially important for courses that require the use of specific software or operating systems in order to complete coursework.

4. Supplement to physical labs: Virtual computer labs can be used to supplement physical computer labs by providing additional capacity for students to access resources. This can be helpful when physical labs are full or when students need to complete coursework outside of regular lab hours.

5. Cost savings: Using virtual computer labs can save educational institutions money on the cost of purchasing and maintaining physical computers and software licenses. Also, eduLAB offers a pay-as-you-grow payment model where you only pay for the number of users you need.

6. Increased flexibility: Virtual computer labs can be easily scaled up or down to meet the changing needs of an educational institution, making them a flexible option for providing students with access to computer resources.
