E-VDI Successful Case in 35 K12 Schools

Apr. 18, 2017

35 schools, 1295 units, OS-easy cloud class(E-VDI)used in the county education bureau.

Challenge

• Due to earlier computer classroom construction, some schools still use fat PC for teaching.

• Classroom desktops are complex.

• Computer stake up much space which affected students’ activity and classroom space.

• Traditional PC often cause applications running slow.

• High components failure rate after some years of using.

• Time-consuming for software upgrade.

• Heavy maintenance work is headache for teachers.

Traditional PC cannot avoid longer boot time, and noisy, 

Hardware and software failure, which caused students’ behavior uncontrollable, leading poor students’ computer learning experience.

In order to fundamentally solve the problem, leaders of education bureau decided to use the latest cloud class solutions for 35 primary and secondary schools.

Solution

They built 37 cloud computer classrooms, 1295 terminals in the newly-built 35 schools in the county.

Each school has one cloud management console, each classroom with one cloud server.

The server used OS-easy customized education cloud host, use Intel E5 series third generation CPU, SSD with higher read and write speed. 

For the terminal, use thin all-in-one PCs, the classroom layout is simple. Teaching desktops used Windows 7, and combined with OS-easy multimedia teaching software for interactive teaching.

Software installed in virtual desktop:

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, WinRAR, PDF reader, video audio player, OS-easy multimedia network teaching system.
