Computing Courses and Configuration
Up until recently Computing courses have pretty much been small scale for us with a total block on .exe's for staff and students in their My Docs / USB drives and shared areas to lock everything down using group policies and FSRM. We now have to consider changes to allow programs such as Small / Visual Basic and Panther for a computing roll out for all students from June onwards requiring the running of .exe's. I was wondering for those that have already gone down Small / Visual Basic route what is the best way to configure the system to keep the network secure. Possibly thought of virtual machines running on a student desktop with no internet or network access but this is expensive with VM Workstation at £80 a licence and could very well be overkill. Ant thoughts would be welcome.
