itopia Labs solves the challenges schools face for delivering high-tech education without breaking the bank. With itopia Labs, educators can provide anytime, anywhere, any device access to software applications that students commonly use for Career Technical Education (CTE) and various certification programs. Software labs can be set up in minutes without expensive computers or IT support at a predictable cost that fits any district budget. And, itopia Labs is designed to deliver a great application user experience, even when students are accessing high-resolution video editing and 3D rendering apps remotely.
Democratizes student access Students can access their applications through itopia Labs using any device with a modern browser, including Chromebooks. Students can do their work on any device at school and at home. itopia Labs is designed to be simple to set up — no specialized IT expertise is required. And, itopia Labs is typically less expensive, with more predictable and scalable costs, than traditional onsite labs or VDI solutions.
Expands school curricula itopia Labs includes a catalog of pre-configured software that students commonly use for CTE and other courses. Teachers can easily add classes by selecting the applications they want to use. Because Labs runs on any device, schools are not limited to classes that can be supported by the computing power of onsite machines. Districts can offer courses both in-class and at home, including those requiring graphics-intensive apps, such as video editing and 3D rendering.
Simplifies use of education technology itopia Labs is fully-managed and hosted by itopia on Google Cloud. Labs integrates with tools educators are already using, including Google Classroom, Google Workspace for identity and access, and Google Drive for students’ work. Administrators can easily create a district view, school view, and class view of their Labs to monitor usage and make adjustments to virtual lab setups.
Any Device, Anywhere Access for Learning itopia Labs runs on any device and uses cloud computing to support scalable access to applications at any time. Because Labs works through a web browser, no software installation is required. Only 0.3 Mbps is needed for Internet bandwidth.
