With Amazon AppStream 2.0, students access the applications they need for class through any computer. It doesn't matter whether they're using Macs, Chromebooks, or PCs, or whether they're in the classroom, the library, a cafe, or at home. AppStream 2.0 streams your applications from AWS to any computer.
AppStream 2.0 makes it easy to manage applications for your class. Simply install your applications on AppStream 2.0 the same way you would on any Windows computer. Then, configure your application with a few clicks, and your students can start learning. You can use G Suite and other IT solutions to manage student access and provide individual storage. AppStream 2.0 is fully managed on AWS with simple pay-as-you-go pricing.
Provide students the applications they need
Your students simply open a web browser, choose the application they need, and start learning. You no longer need to worry about running Windows applications on Macs and Chromebooks, or troubleshooting installations with your students.
Let students learn anytime from anywhere
Applications are available for your students on demand. They can access them during class, close their laptops when class ends, and pick up where they left off at the library, a cafe, or at home.
Always have access to a computer lab
You don't need to reserve computer labs, and your students don't need to find a computer lab to do their work. AppStream 2.0 delivers what your students need at the computer lab directly to their computers, whether Mac, Chromebook, or PC.
Easily manage your class applications
Simply install your applications on AppStream 2.0 the same way you would on a Windows computer. Then, configure your application in a few clicks, and your students can start learning. You can use G Suite or your school's existing IT solutions to manage student access and provide individual storage.
Reduce your IT spending
Stop purchasing computers your students use for only a few hours a week. With AppStream 2.0, you pay only for the time your students are streaming applications, plus a reduced monthly fee per student. There are no long-term contracts, complex licensing, or termination fees.
Deliver distance learning
Your classes aren't limited by students' access to specific computers on campus or in the classroom. With AppStream 2.0 any student in the world can access the applications they need for class with a fluid and responsive experience.

By using Amazon AppStream 2.0, Fife Public School's students can now access applications from anywhere, anytime, on any device. Fife Public Schools in Washington aspires to be a top-tier learning organization in which all students are being prepared for college, career, and life. Fife School District provides a device for every kid in the district. While the kids automatically got access to some applications, there were certain programs they couldn’t access, especially those used in CTE (Careers in Technical Education) classes. In addition to providing equitable access with Amazon AppStream 2.0, the district turned labs back into learning spaces, which saved the district money it would have otherwise spent on building costs.
Radboud University is a comprehensive, international, student-oriented research university located in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Radboud uses Amazon AppStream 2.0 to administer course examinations to Computing Computer Science students using Chromebooks.
“We needed a way to allow more than 500 students to simultaneously access NetBeans as part of a final examination. AppStream 2.0 was able to scale to meet our needs. We installed our applications on AppStream 2.0 and populated the examination hall with Chromebooks. Students were able to simply open a Chromebook and start working.”
