Windows 10 Learning Environment for School of Business Students with Macs
MacBook use in School of Business classes is now between 50% to 60% and there is a trend toward this percentage increasing. School of Business ITS created a Windows 10 Learning Environment which students will access by installing either VirtualBox or VMware Fusion on their Macs. This software will read and write to a virtual disk, saved locally on their Macs, containing the Windows Learning Environment. In roughly 20 minutes students using Macs will have a working Windows 10 Operating System with Office 2016 for Windows hosted on their Macs. Students will be able to install other Windows software required for classes as necessary which they cannot do on SkyBox or OPIM Virtual Desktop. Also because the virtual disk is stored locally it will work even if SkyBox were to go offline.
We encourage all students taking OPIM classes requiring Windows and Microsoft Office for Windows to attend one of the three workshops. At the workshop students will be guided through the process of installing VMware Fusion or Oracle VirtualBox and configure their Mac for use in Business classes. Workshops will be offered on Aug. 27th, Sept. 2nd and Sept 9th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM in BUSN 211.
