MojoPac is really enabling these students to succeed
Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
RingCube Technologies, Inc., the creator of truly portable personal computing solutions, announced today that San Jose State University students are using its MojoPac software to take all the resources of their classroom computer anywhere on their personal storage device. MojoPac, for the first time, enables students to turn any storage device, including iPods, USB flash or personal drives, or even cell phones, into their personal computing environment - which when plugged into the USB connection on any computer functions just as their own personal computer.
"MojoPac is a solution that greatly enhances our course delivery and the learning experience of our students with very little effort and no expense on our part," said Dr. Sigurd Meldal Chair, Computer Engineering Department, San Jose State University. "Our faculty prepackages course material including installed software applications. Students get an inexpensive environment that is personal and portable. And, the support staff members are happy as there is less lab maintenance work."
"MojoPac is really enabling these students to succeed," said Shan Appajodu, CEO and Co-Founder of RingCube. "By providing the flexibility of taking and using their classroom computers anywhere, any time and on any device, MojoPac is allowing students to stay a step ahead and be more productive."
With MojoPac, students can take all their academic and personal information, settings, and applications such as Microsoft Office, JDK, Eclipse, MSQL, iTunes, Adobe Photoshop, and top PC games such as World of Warcraft with them wherever they go, on any portable storage device, including ones many students carry with them every day. MojoPac transforms any storage device into a personal computer, instantly.
MojoPac is particularly suited to help students in colleges and universities where using computers is a day to day activity that takes place in many different locations using a wide variety of applications. Using the tools provided by RingCube, a San Jose State University College of Engineering course instructor packaged all the applications required into a MojoPac image. The students then copied the image on their favorite device (iPod or USB storage device), and activated their MojoPacs, a process which took them a few minutes and did not require any change to their PC - no installation, no configuration, and consequently no need to ask for help from the university IT administrators.
"MojoPac allows the College of Engineering to provide more services to students in our numerous labs while at the same time reducing our administrative complexity. A real win-win situation," said Scott Pham, System Administrator, Engineering Computing Services, San Jose State University.
Students now take their MojoPac enabled device and simply plug it into the USB hub of any computer to pick up their coursework where they left off, creating a highly customized and personal computing device. The MojoPac environment is isolated from the PC it connects to, so system administrators have the peace of mind they require, while offering the students the personal digital experience they need.
