Digital learning is any instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student’s learning experience, and today, February 23, is Digital Learning Day.
We don’t know many organizations that are as dedicated to the practice of digital learning as VIF International Education. VIF builds global education programs that prepare teachers and students for success in an interconnected world. As a certified B Corp, they must meet specific standards for social and environmental performance.
Thanks to VIF, many of the folks who aren’t fortunate enough to travel around the globe – and that’s most of the population – can tap into technology to meet, interact with and learn about the world. In fact, VIF’s Online Learning Center, a professional development platform for K–12 educators, connects 10,000 teachers from 60 countries across the globe and enables them to see each other on screen and collaborate on projects together.
Cloud Services Deliver Worldwide Learning Opportunities
When user traffic on VIF’s Online Learning Center grew by more than 500 percent in one year, its on-premises IT infrastructure just couldn’t keep up. The service was running on a single server blade without power or network redundancy, leading to downtime, diminishing its reliability, and worse, frustrating teachers and students around the globe.
VMware is focused on helping organizations of all kinds succeed in their own unique digital transformation journey. The VIF team wanted a cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service platform to better address their ongoing growth needs. VMware vCloud® AirTM was the best fit based on the service’s proven performance, broad OS and application support, and not least of all, the VIF IT team’s familiarity and comfort with the VMware vSphere® environment.
Moving to vCloud Air delivered immediate operational benefits and helped VIF prepare for continued rapid growth.
