Amazon AppStream 2.0 – Learning environments
Provide students secure access to applications and low-cost virtual desktops
With Amazon AppStream 2.0, students access the applications and secure virtual desktops 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 applications or virtual desktops securely 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 a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application streaming and virtual desktop streaming service 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.
