        Given the increasing diversity of devices and user types., establishing and maintaining a standardized technology learning platform in an educational institution can be difficult. Bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives are increasingly popular in institutions, because they can reduce the up-front cost of devices while allowing faculty and students to take advantage of technology for education. However, BYOD initiatives can create problems for IT pros who support the faculty and students. Learn how you can address these challenges by using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) powered by the Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 operating system. With VDI in Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows MultiPoint Server 2012, users can remotely run Windows 8.1 apps as though they were running on their local device, including video clips, movies, streaming video, and other graphically intensive applications. Users can also directly access USB devices connected to their device (such as smart card readers, USB flash drives, or scanners) from within VDI.
