Frequently Asked Questions
itopia is a streaming technology that enables educators to provide anytime, anywhere, any device access to pre-configured software apps that students commonly use for Career Technical Education (CTE) and for other purposes. These “CloudApps Classrooms” are particularly designed to deliver a great user experience for graphics-intensive applications, including video editing and 3D rendering.
Schools use itopia to deliver CloudApps Classrooms for Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk AutoCAD, Microsoft Office, and SOLIDWORKS, among many others.
itopia is built to solve common challenges with access to software used in CTE curricula.
itopia can be set up within hours, does not require specialized expertise to use, and is fully-managed by itopia. It integrates with tools educators are already using, including Google Classroom, Google Workspace for identity and access, and Google Drive for students’ work. Common CTE software is pre-configured and made available in itopia, so it only takes a few minutes for teachers to select what they need and set up a new lab.
itopia delivers better application performance – compared to VDI or other remote application access solutions (like AWS WorkSpaces) – and is purpose-built to provide a smoother, high-performance user experience for graphics-intensive apps, such as video editing and 3D rendering.
itopia is a less expensive and more predictable cost alternative – Because it works on any device – including Chromebooks – schools can use it to complement onsite labs so students can do homework or work remotely or replace existing onsite labs with less expensive devices. itopia also right-sizes the cloud environment for CloudApps Classrooms, so schools only pay for use within specified parameters for a predictable fee.
No. itopia does not require changes to typical class procedures. It 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 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 is fully-managed by itopia, so the solution does not require regular intervention and support from your IT team.
