Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a cloud computing service that enables users to access virtual desktops and applications from anywhere and on any device with an internet connection. With DaaS, users don’t need to have high-end hardware or local software installations to run resource-intensive applications because all the computing power is provided by the cloud.

Virtual desktops are created on servers in the cloud and users can access these desktops remotely via a secure internet connection. This enables users to have a consistent and centralized computing environment regardless of the device they are using. DaaS providers typically offer a range of pricing plans based on the number of users and the amount of computing power required.

The East Central Ohio ESC utilizes AWS AppStream 2.0 to provide schools access to a variety of software packages.  Software can include Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor and more!

Project Lead The Way

In April 2021, PLTW released official images for use with AWS AppStream 2.0.  This allows PLTW schools access to the required software for PLTW curriculum without the expense of lab computers or with the flexibility of providing access to these applications to students in the evenings and weekends! Read more.

Fully Managed Desktop Experience

The ECOESC will setup and manage all end-user desktops provide a completely hands-off experience for the school district.  With Google or Microsoft SSO, we can provide students a streamlined, branded experience for access to applications they may normally require a powerful PC to run!

Online Learning

The East Central Ohio ESC assists our districts in a number of ways to support online education.  Our video support team assists teachers and provides training and best practices in Zoom and Google Hangouts.  Our online education team supports districts in multiple counties with the acquisition and management of several online learning software packages. Lastly, we assist our consortium of districts in the registration and daily management of online learners across our learning platforms which include live instruction over video conferencing and asynchronous learning using one of a couple of platforms and curricula we have access to.

In addition to training on products such as Google G Suite for Education, Microsoft 365, Viewsonic, and SMART Notebook, we can provide customized training on any number of other products. Workshops can also be offered for graduate credit through Muskingum College, Ashland University, and Franciscan University.
