itopia Labs delivers learning experiences from the most popular creative applications - specifically, Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC).
What applications are included in Adobe CC?
Adobe CC includes 20+ Creative Cloud apps plus tutorials and lots of updates.
Since Labs is a fully managed service, itopia is responsible for all applications and associated updates.
If your school district doesn't already have Adobe educational licenses, be sure to take advantage of Adobe Creative Cloud pricing for students and teachers.
itopia Labs Pricing
Since itopia Labs provides school districts with predictable costs via a 'compute credit' model, credits are only consumed when students (and instructors) launch Labs with Adobe CC. Since Adobe is resource intensive, Labs requires a Tier 3 configuration for graphics acceleration (or GPU in GCP terminology). The Tier 3 configuration uses 8 'compute credits' for each hour of student or teacher usage.
