Indiana University Takes Education to Higher Level with Citrix

Institution leverages virtual applications and desktops to create
flexible, inclusive environment in which faculty and students can
thrive, wins 2019 Citrix Innovation Award

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Learning isn’t confined to classrooms. It can happen anywhere, anytime.
And to ensure that it does, Indiana University (IU) has turned to Citrix
Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ:CTXS). Using the company’s digital
workspace solutions
, the university has created an always-on,
inclusive environment in which its faculty and students can access the
tools they need to share and consume knowledge when, where and how they
want. In doing so, it is changing the game for education. And for its
efforts
, it was awarded the 2019
Citrix Innovation Award
today at Citrix
Synergy
, the premier digital work conference taking place in Atlanta
this week.

“Universities are particularly important places where societies evolve,
where we want to include everyone,” said Brad Wheeler, Chief Information
Officer and Vice President for Information Technology, IU.

To deliver on this vision, Wheeler and his team knew they would need to
rethink the way technology was delivered. “We serve almost 100,000
students and 20,000 faculty and staff on our seven campuses and have
people all over the world online taking courses,” Wheeler said. “And
they all need a simple and reliable way to connect to our network.”

Enter Citrix. Using Citrix®
Workspace™
and Citrix
Virtual Apps and Desktops
, IU has created IUanyWare,
an award-winning cloud software service that makes it easy for students,
faculty, and staff to access and run IU-licensed software applications
on their computer or mobile device in a unified and secure way.

Leveling the Playing Field

“With IUanyWare, we have the ability to create custom desktops for any
school, any department,” said Matt Link, Associate Vice President of
Research Technologies, Office of the Vice President for IT, Indiana
University.

IU has put this to use to build an Accessible Technology Desktop that
has helped level the playing field for individuals with disabilities who
physically or virtually attend IU.

“The AT Desktop is designed to promote independence, giving students
with visual impairments the same access to information as their peers
and is a prime example of the way IU is constantly striving to educate
all learners,” Wheeler said.

Changing the Game

And it is transforming education. “When you think about the
possibilities of greatness that are opened when you include everyone,
it’s almost overwhelming,” said Stephanie Cox, Manager, Application and
Desktop Virtualization, IU.
