Description

This research approach will measure the overall effectiveness of implementing the Edubuntu Linux based
Operating System (OS) for educational purposes in grades 6th - 8th middle schools through desktop
virtualization. Grades 6th - 8th middle schools are faced with the challenges of outdated technologies, and limited
resources, as there is a disproportionate amount of hardware, software and printer devices for the students.
The possibilities of using virtualization for online and on ground environments could change the face of education
in not just K-12 but higher education as well.
