Many teachers and parents today are turning to remote learning in an effort to reduce the academic disruption, especially in subject areas such as science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). With the new offering from PTC, teachers and students can access this computer-aided design (CAD) Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology over the Internet to collaborate on design and other engineering projects.

“This is an unprecedented time, and we hope to do our part in helping the many teachers and parents looking for resources to continue STEM learning during this crisis,” said Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC. “Similar to using programs like Google Docs for their English classes, students at home will be able to collaborate as they simultaneously create and edit designs. With this Onshape offering, students can discover or continue their interest in STEM with a solution that can be used to create cars, furniture, laptops, and more.”

Onshape is a SaaS product development platform that is used worldwide by thousands of professional and aspiring designers and engineers, and is accessible from a wide range of devices, including Chromebooks, MacBooks, smartphones, and tablets. As a pure SaaS platform, there is no software installation required and no IT infrastructure to administer and maintain, allowing students to get started easily and quickly in order to collaborate, innovate, and have fun.
