CARY, N.C. (PRWEB) September 30, 2020
As schools put systems in place to better enable distance learning, 34 school districts have deployed Cameyo’s Digital Workspace solution in the past 30 days to enable hundreds of thousands of students to access all of their critical learning applications from home, regardless of what type of device they’re using.
“In these unprecedented times, students still need access to critical Windows applications - everything from AutoCAD to Adobe Creative Suite to Microsoft Office - even when distance learning. But many students don’t have a Windows PC at home,” said Andrew Miller,Co-Founder & CEO at Cameyo. “Cameyo enables school districts to give all of their students simple, secure access to all of the software they need to learn, no matter what device they’re using. Cameyo’s ability to be deployed in hours instead of weeks combined with our dramatic cost savings compared to virtual desktops has led to a staggering number of school districts selecting our platform in the past 30 days. We’re proud to play a role in helping so many districts continue to deliver an effective learning environment during these challenging times.”
Here’s what a few of these school districts had to say about their experiences with Cameyo’s Digital Workspace platform:
Providing a Cost-Effective Alternative to DaaS
“We had been using VMware, but the cost was prohibitive, especially for widespread remote learning. We needed a cost-effective alternative that would enable us to provide all of our students with access to all of the apps they need - including legacy Windows apps - from their Chromebooks. Cameyo not only saved us a ton of money compared to VMware, but it is incredibly easy to manage, and is more secure. This works better than anything we’ve ever had, and Cameyo is now going to play a key role in our long-term plans for moving everything to the cloud,” said John Cerio, Network Administrator at Baldwinsville Central School District.
Eliminating the Learning Curve for Distance Learning
“COVID-19 has forced school districts to deliver instruction differently. For Staunton City Schools, this meant we needed a realistic plan to deliver Windows applications to students using Chromebooks at home. Cameyo has delivered every step of the way, and our students are now successfully accessing all of their applications from home - simply and securely - with Cameyo! The setup and deployment of Cameyo was quick, and the user experience for students is excellent. Students still get access to the full desktop version of the software they’re used to, just running in a browser, so there’s no learning curve. Also, Cameyo’s support team was great throughout the process - they have continued to follow through for us and didn’t abandon us after the deployment went live,” said Tom Lundquist, Director of Technology at Staunton City Schools.
Extending the Value of 1:1 Programs with Access to All Apps
“As the San Diego Unified School District entered into plans for online learning to begin the 2020-2021 school year, the College, Career and Technical Education department was committed to finding a solution to continue to provide students with access to the industry-standard software they need for their courses. The district moved to a 1:1 device strategy to provide all students with a device for online learning, which included Chromebooks. Cameyo provided the solution we needed to make the critical software available to students on any device through the browser, and Cameyo’s ease of use and cost-effectiveness have been critical to our ability to enable these distance-learning efforts,” said Sarah Vielma, Director of College, Career, and Technical Education at San Diego Unified School District.
