McLean, VA — January 9, 2024: Propeller, a leading provider of cloud-hosted virtual desktops and
application delivery solutions for education, will hold a free webinar on February 21, 2024, titled “Access Granted: Practical Examples of Virtual Desktop Solutions in Higher Education” as part of Educause’s Industry Insights series.

David Yaskin, a well-known education technology innovator and founder of Starfish Retention Solutions, moderates this event which will explore real-world use cases, deployment, and outcomes.

David will be joined by panelists Natalie Montañez, Instruction Technology Supervisor for Research, Teaching, and Learning at UC Berkeley, and Tim Rager, IT Director for the College of Agricultural Sciences at Oregon State University. During the webinar, panelists will discuss their experiences implementing Propeller’s virtual desktop solutions in their institutions.

Montañez and Rager will share important considerations and best practices for topics
such as:

  • Navigating the challenges of encouraging faculty buy-in for a successful
    deployment
  • Identifying key benefits of virtual desktop implementation for students and faculty
  • Addressing the specific needs of your institution’s hardware, software, and staff
  • Uncovering insights into budgetary constraints and ways virtual desktop solutions
    can minimize costs

“We’re excited to team up with Educause as well as our partners at Amazon Web Services,” said Greg Smith, CEO of Propeller. “We know David will lead a lively and informative discussion. And Natalie and Tim are looking forward to sharing their experiences with virtual desktop solutions—what worked, what didn’t and what they learned. It’s a great format for anyone at any higher ed institution looking for tips and examples for their own deployment.”

Attendees will have the chance to ask the panelists questions during the live event, and
a recording will be available afterward.
