Windows 10 Education

New features used by Windows 10 Education

This version, like all of Windows 10, includes a large number of new features. The focus here is on simpler control and operation on PCs, laptops and portable devices with touch functions. An intelligent start menu allows sorting and displaying all sorts of apps according to your own preferences. Thanks to the principle of virtual desktops, working with Windows 10 no longer takes place on a single interface. This helps teach staff to concisely delimit information materials and their own content in a meaningful way and access them in a clear arrangement with a few hand movements. As with other versions of Windows 10, it is also possible to call up functions and information via the Cortana voice service. Software licensing is available for entire schools and individual teachers. In this case, the operating system can be used on teachers’ devices intended for teaching purposes. Full remote desktop support is available for extensive and comprehensive use regardless of the device. As far as security is concerned, the Windows 10 version with Device Guard offers a comprehensive data security package. The BranchCache application optimizes network data traffic, which is particularly worthwhile in larger schools with many devices for teaching use. Windows To Go support makes carrying the operating system possible via a stick or other storage medium.

Difference to other versions of Windows 10

Essentially, the Education version is comparable with the Enterprise version with the Windows 10 Pro operating system. It is designed for small companies that want to set up a functional network with fast and secure data exchange. These demands also arise in schools, universities, and other educational institutions. Without special apps for the education sector, the system requirements of Education and Enterprise are identical. It differs from the Pro version mainly by the following features:

  • BranchCache
  • Start screen control for groups
  • AppLocker to prevent unwanted background programs
  • Direct Access
    Direct Access ensures that off-location employees have secure and functional access to the company's own network via smartphones and other devices. This is also useful for schools and universities when teachers want to access the school network from home. As an additional security aspect, Windows 10 Education offers the Bitlocker function also available in the Pro version, enabling the encryption of hard disks.

Benefit from comprehensive support with "Windows as a Service"

The "Windows as a Service" concept is generally new to the Windows 10 family. Microsoft developers provide new features at regular intervals to prevent major updates or conversion to new versions. Features cover a broad spectrum of functions, areas of computer technology and are partly offered as an option. This allows teachers and other users of Windows 10 Education to freely decide which applications are the most suitable to organize or conduct teaching sessions.

Special apps improve the teaching experience

Users of Windows 10 Education can build individual extensions through apps, independent of features from Microsoft. In addition to the current app stores, Microsoft offers several special applications aimed at educational institutions. First and foremost should be a special version of the Minecraft game, which encourages students of all ages in their creativity, organization, and communication. Another concept is the use of Microsoft MakeCode, which as a simple version provides an opportunity for practical programming even for young age groups. Besides pure line programming with source code, MakeCode is also ideal for mechanics, technology, and mechanical engineering developments. The education version is specially designed for this purpose, as many suitable apps are of a non-commercial nature.
