itopia Labs enables educators to provide anytime, anywhere, any device access – including Chromebooks – to pre-configured software applications that students commonly use for Career Technical Education (CTE) and for other purposes. These “virtual labs” are particularly designed to deliver a great user experience for graphics-intensive applications, including video editing and 3D rendering. itopia Labs is securely hosted and managed by itopia on Google Cloud.
Schools frequently use itopia Labs to deliver virtual labs for Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk AutoCAD, Microsoft Office, and SOLIDWORKS. itopia Labs supports other applications, too. Please inquire with an itopia representative about specific applications.
itopia Labs is specifically built to solve common challenges with providing access to software used in CTE curricula.
No. itopia Labs does not require changes to typical class procedures. Labs enables students to access, work with, and save files using the applications they normally use. The difference is that students can now access these applications anytime, anywhere, from any device – securely.
itopia Labs was built to be easy to manage. Teachers can set up virtual classes on their own and assign students with a direct sync to Google Classroom. itopia Labs is fully-managed by itopia, so the solution does not require regular intervention and support from your IT team.
