As a teacher, regularly preparing class material both at school and at home can be hard to manage. File transferring and saving various versions of the same document isn’t always easy and we end up with the wrong and unsaved versions.

Windows To Go, one of the many new features of Windows 8 Enterprise, provides educators with an easy solution - an imaged version of Windows 8 that reflects your school desktop. Windows To Go is a self-contained, portable operating system that runs solely on a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. It enables a consistent environment without the fuss of a laptop or briefcase.

Educators are now able to take their USB’s and put them into their home PC, whether it be running Windows XP, Windows 7, or even on a Mac. When turned on, the PC will boot from the USB device to a managed school desktop, which has the option of being password protected. Added to this, at their own discretion, teachers are given the freedom to choose which applications and security settings are set to that particular desktop.

Windows To Go allows teachers to fully benefit from bringing their own PC to school if a balance of their personal and professional lives is desired. It also enables the flexibility of file sharing with colleagues and students if a teacher is unable to attend a presentation or meeting.
