By implementing a virtual computer lab many schools have found the benefit of saving space. Most schools traditionally have one or two computer labs on campus for the convenience of the students. Some schools even find they have no need for a physical lab if they’ve found success with a virtual one. Teaching methods are made easier on instructors because they are able to extend curriculum to online students across the board. Students can utilize programs available on the virtual labs to connect with other students and teachers.
Most virtual computer labs contain specific file sharing software that the student has to download on their computer. This allows them to access the virtual lab, share files and use other school programs the lab so long as they’re enrolled in that particular school. Files can also be shared between the student and teacher. Homework can be accessed from anywhere. Students don’t have to worry about their homework being elsewhere, or missing a deadline. They can pull their homework from the online lab and make use of it when necessary.
