EDUCATION IT SERVICES CASE STUDY
Waterloo Region District School Board is the public-school board for the Region of Waterloo in Ontario, serving more than 64,000 students.
The Board was challenged with the need to provide secondary school technology students with access to high performance applications supporting remote learning. The object of the project was to enable a secure and ubiquitous remote desktop experience allowing students to access course software from anywhere, anytime, from any device.
“Azure Virtual Desktops provided our secondary students and educators access to high performance computer resources without the need to physically be in one of our schools, this provided in-person and remote learning students access to the same resources. We now have over 250 classes with more than 5200 students actively using the virtual resources and we continue to receive requests from different educators to extend access for new courses. The project has been a success both financially and improving our students experience.”
