Cloud-based technology learning platform Cloudswyft will start rolling out its virtual lab solutions at STI Education Services Group, Inc. (STI ESG) schools. The partnership was launched on Oct. 18 with the initial deployment of 11,000 virtual lab environments that will enable students to access multiple applications.
Applications such as Autodesk Inc.’s AutoCAD, Microsoft 365, and Adobe Systems will be accessible on any device or gadget regardless of the computer systems. It is aimed at augmenting the online learning experience and collaboration for both students and teachers through “virtual labs” amid the now normal of remote learning and working.
“STI has been looking for a solution that can solve this problem since last year,” said Dann Angelo De Guzman, founder and CEO, Cloudswyft. “They found out about us because of the philanthropic and social impact efforts that we have done with Microsoft Global Schools Initiative.”
Founded in 2015, CloudSwyft provides a custom virtual labs platform to align with existing laboratory subjects and course curricula across several disciplines including Computer Science, Information Technology, Engineering, Architecture, Multimedia Design, Hospitality Management, and Business Statistics, among others.
Virtual desk spaces
CloudSwyft uses its virtual lab technology to provide off-the-shelf and customizable virtual lab templates that are automated, highly accessible, and available on-demand to foster hands-on digital learning for thousands of STI students nationwide.
CloudSwyft will also start offering CloudSwyft’s Future-Ready Skills, which will give students access to webinars concentrating on career path discussion, data science courses, and lab assessments.
De Guzman explained that these virtual desk spaces are built for telecommuting workers and designed similar to virtual labs for schools.
“This is targeted for enterprise and corporate where we will be the more cost-efficient and the more scalable, easier, simpler alternative compared to the traditional expensive virtual desktop infrastructure solutions that many companies or many enterprise organizations are using nowadays,” De Guzman said.
