In Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, by the part of the information strategy, we promote to abolish the conventional computer room, and make the user to bring the user's own computer (BYOD: Bring Your Own Device). The trend of this BYOD are expanding progressively in other universities in Japan. The type of user's device is wide variety , its usability is too. In this situation, it increases the cost of teacher due to the difference of the operation.

To reduce this cost, we propose our brand new designed computer environment, Virtual Computer Classroom (VCCr). Our VCCr is based on virtual desktop technology, and each user can use the VCCr by accessing to the remote desktop, which can be accessed from everywhere in our campus. VCCr can be used by HTML5-compliant web browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox), instead of the dedicated client in a conventional VDI or remote desktop environment. This enables the use from a variety of access device that are independent of the device type of the user (e.g. Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chrome). As a result of this, convenience for the user is significantly improved.

We present the detail of the design and structure of our VCCr architecture. We also provide a VCCr reservation system, which can adopt the class schedule, in order to manage the number of the virtual desktops for class and self-study use efficiently. We also present the detail of this reservation system.
