The Onshape Education plans are the educational versions of PTC’s Software as a Service product, designed to enable computer-aided design (CAD) activities in a remote learning environment. The Education Standard plan has been free to educational institutions since 2016 and is available to students and educators who want to use professional-grade CAD that is completely online. The newly released Education Enterprise plan builds upon the Standard plan with features designed to enable universities and K-12 schools to launch, manage, and scale CAD activities across entire institutions.
“With online education being a necessity right now, I am making the full switch to Onshape so that my students don't lose any instructional time due to software constraints if they have to learn remotely from home,” said David Vinopal, Technology Education Teacher and Department Chair, Derry Area School District, Pennsylvania.
He added, “Using the Onshape Education Enterprise plan will help me manage all of the students whether they are physically in the school building or working from home. Since there is no major installation or download required, I am pleased to know that my students will be able to log into the software and begin learning on day one.”
The Onshape Education Enterprise Plan is easily scaled across large classes, departments, and institutions, and as a cloud-based platform, it requires no downloads, installs, or upgrades. Platform analytics provide visibility into student usage and activity, and administrative features allow educators to easily manage and share permissions within the institution's private domain.
“As a parent of two school-aged children myself, it is clear this school year will be unlike any other,” said Kathleen Mitford, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, PTC. “By providing large-scale educational institutions with access to the Onshape Education Enterprise plan free-of-charge, we hope to enable teachers to continue their STEM-based, CAD lesson plans, whenever and wherever needed.”
