MyVLab is a service hosted by Information Technology Services providing students and faculty remote access to applications that are not widely available. Users log in to an application with their Western ID and password and are provided a Desktop environment to run the provided applications.
As of September 2013, MyVLab has had a facelift. In order to address issues brought on by the previous software that provided MyVLab, ITS has replaced Secure Global Desktop with VMWare Horizon View.
This change is to ensure MyVLab is available to highest population of Western Students and Faculty while providing additional features. See "MyVLab News" for more details on the changes.
