Develop a project and product plan in small teams that can withstand first contact with the enemy.
In this workshop, certified project manager Craig Kilgo will help participants understand the principles of project management through discovery and practice by examining the problems during construction of the Death Star 2 and how those problems were mitigated.
Is comprehensive single-tool zero-touch computer lab imaging and management a pipe dream? Many of us utilize several disparate tools to provide and control endpoint imaging, non-persistence, facility and application utilization reporting, and real-time remote monitoring, management and control of endpoints. All of those tools can be quite expensive to purchase and maintain. They don't integrate with each other, lack needed functionality, and sometimes actually reduce efficiency and productivity. What if there was one tool that could do everything?
The IT Lab Services department of James Madison University (Virginia) has developed a full featured integrated lab management system that has allowed the department to reduce student lab monitor staffing by 80% and become a near zero-touch shop managing over 1,200 endpoints throughout 60 buildings across the entire campus. The LabDash system integrates endpoint commissioning & decommissioning, imaging, non-persistence (freezing/thawing), real-time monitoring of multiple pulse indicators, live screenshots, remote control (including remote power cycling and hardware reset via AMT), equipment inventory, application usage statistics, digital signage integrated with room schedules, software request management, and image application inventories, all operated through a convenient easy-to-use browser-based interface. The system has been under in-house development since 2015 and is being considered for release to the public as an Open Source project. In this session, the software author will demonstrate the LabDash Dashboard and LabDashPE Windows Installer.
In part 1, Eddie will demonstrate the LabDash Dashboard features, and in part 2 the LabDashPE Imaging System.
Apple has moved away from thick imaging, so how do you wipe and re-image Macs?
In this presentation, Chris will discuss how Butler University worked with Apple and Jamf on the process developed to wipe and re-image lab machines, how this process was put in place, and the steps it took to make it happen. This presentations establishes how to follow best practices and how they've as Apple has made changes to its own processes.
Software package management isn't easy, that much has been known for some time. But it doesn't have to be painful. In this presentation, members of the VCU Labs and Classrooms Computing team will debut a brand new package management technique that provides seamless, unified syntax for installing application software on both Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS from the command-line.
Utilizing existing package management utilities as the basis for command-line driven software deployment, Packless is designed to offer something EDU's desire but can't always get with traditional enterprise or with open-source (and crowd-sourced) software package management solutions, without spending hours to get started. With Packless, all you need is a web server and a Google Sheet. You can build a library of software packages that are deployable on Windows and macOS devices in minutes and keep them updated as easily as updating a field in your Google Sheet, all while maintaining reporting capabilities through functions in Google Sheets. Follow along on your own device as we demonstrate Packless.
Is your school considering moving to an Adobe Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA) to save on licensing costs? In this presentation, the project team from VCU will be explaining their process to migrate over 70+ VIP (Value Incentive Plan) agreements to a single ETLA with Adobe.
Topics within the presentation include: Account migration for named-user accounts, transitioning from serialized device licensing to shared device licensing, deployment and activation challenges, license request processes, cost recovery solutions, and providing student licensing using Kivuto's OnTheHub webstore for easy subscription management. In addition to these topics, a demonstration showing the Kivuto webstore will be conducted with a Q&A session afterwards.
Puppet Introduction Hands-On workshop will allow you to get started with Puppet! We will work through the Puppet Learning-VM interactive tutorial and learning environment together. This self-paced workshop will allow participants time to start working through the Puppet Learning-VM. The speaker will wander around answering questions that may arise.
This workshop will be a self-paced and self-guided workshop that will allow you to work through the Puppet Learning-VM. The speaker will wander around answering any questions that you may have. Workshop Requirements: Laptop with up-to-date VirtualBox or VMWare Desktop virtualization software. Puppet Learning-VM downloaded from https://puppet.com/try-puppet/puppet-learning-vm/
How to manage a Linux lab using DevOps! This talk with go over how Calvin University is managing their Computer Science labs using the Puppet open-source tool with the Foreman open-source front-end.
This technical talk will cover the basics of what Puppet is, what Foreman is, and how they work together. Demonstrations of utilizing Foreman and Puppet to provision a bare-metal machine, and stage it hands-free to a fully working Desktop will be shown. This is a redux (revive) of a LabMan 2016 presentation so will also cover lessons learned since then and the evolution of the solution.
Explore the world of lecture capture with the VCU Academic Technologies team! In the Fall of 2019, VCU began deploying the Kaltura Classroom Lecture Capture software solution to all centrally-managed classrooms. Come learn about the journey VCU went through and see how a solution like Kaltura can help bring lecture capture to more classrooms, more efficiently.
In this presentation, Eric Harvey (Senior Manager, Learning Systems) and Tomas Balciulis (Kaltura Administrator) will review the history of lecture capture at VCU covering capture appliances, centralized storage services and media processing, and of course the transition to Kaltura. Houston Griffith (Senior Manager, Labs and Classrooms Computing) will review the deployment process for Kaltura Classroom to all centrally-managed classrooms providing a look inside some of the challenges faced and how they were addressed.
Powershell is a free tool that can be used to gather data and perform actions across campus in minutes.
We want to show you how we use PowerShell to streamline classroom AV systems deployment, configuration, and updates. We will also talk about Custom AV framework based on data stored in .csv file, which dramatically increases deployment efficiency.
LabFind and LabStats product updates. Come see what's new in LabFind and LabStats.
A higher level view of how data from LabStats can be used to provide value to many departments on campus. How can Lab Management, DevOps and IT Administrators provide value to other departments on campus? We'll explore that in this session.
How can you best utilize all the resources available from the LabStats team? LabStats is in the business of helping our customers succeed: at their universities and in their careers. How can you utilize LabStats resources to help you and your organization win? We'll explore that in this session.
This session is focused on gathering input, feedback and ideas from attendees that are freshly exposed to LabMan's conference content. What did we learn at the conference that we can apply to LabStats? What would help attendees' do their jobs better? How can we make a tool that will work better for the attendees? We're seeking attendee input for the future of LabStats in this session.
