Chird Team made up of several individuals who are passionate about Technology. Chird is a young start-up specializing in embedded technology training and embedded products R&D ，located in Hangzhou-China.
Chird Team compared with numerous board solutions by careful assessments, CubieTruck works more available and conforms to icloud-education.
Chird is a famous embedded training institution, firstly introduces ARM @ i-cloud service in education field by CubieTruck. Chird Team actively promotes teaching mode reform. It is the first step towards a combined education system with local colleges and universities. As a practice teaching platform, CubieTruck provides an effective way to train up advanced technologies in embedded system development by all dimensions.
Why choose Cubietruck as embedded i-cloud education platform?
Most of the traditional embedded training institutions usually adopt PC + ARM target board solution. By installing virtual machine in PC for students using, the utilization rate of PC resources and development efficiency of students is very low. In either case, there is no help for students to absorb the knowledge of Linux system , and to understand hardware peripherals in this way.
The Cubietruck installed Debian Linux, provides i-cloud service for students and helps them deepen understanding of linux system throughout runtime environment. Every student gets a user account from Windows server, and connects to it by RDP protocol. The students can study and practice in the Cubietruck terminal. It can promote utilization of sever resources.
Some Technical Features
- Cubietruck works in the combination of one server and multiple cloud terminal by Giga byte network transmission, sharing with the same PC sever resources.
- Every student gets a user account in PC sever center installed Windows system, which is convenient for students to write or reviews documents.
- The cubietruck installed Debian Linux, provides i-cloud service for students and help them deepen understanding of linux system throughout runtime environment. Students also can freely log into windows system by RDP applications such as rdesktop、freerdp. Chird classroom offers data transfer by Giga bybe cables and switcher to guarantee
a smooth network.
- With Linux virtual machine installed under the Windows OS of PC sever center, students can connect to the PC sever center to compile and develop. It can save precious time and improve work efficiently , further more reduce Cubietruck heavy burden.
The advantages of Cubietruck cloud classroom
- Saving cost in hardware, Cubietruck is much cheaper than a PC computer
- Very convenient to manage and maintain.
- Small size (less than palm size), low power consumption, high integration and high performance
- Easier to help students understanding Linux system
- Provided Mulit-interfaces and experiment cases for students, to activate their creative idea
Desire of Chird
Set embedded training , embedded teaching plan and embedded product development into a whole. Help train embedded talents and build a bridge for students and company personnel. To form an embedded engineer social circle, facilitating everybody to make like-minded friends, to understand industry dynamic,and to enrich lives…
Below is the Chinses initial verion:
- 云教室采用cubietruck开发板作为云终端，安装debian linux系统让学生从始至终都在linux系统上学习，加深对linux系统的了解。服务器为每一位同学开一个用户，云终端通过RDP协议同时连接到windows服务器，大家可以在服务器学习和开发，合理利用服务器资源，减少资源的浪费。
- Cubietruck云终端作为每个同学的mini PC机，安装debian linux系统，学生在linux系统中进行学习和开发，如果需要用到windows系统可以通过rdesktop、freerdp等RDP应用软件登陆服务器中。教室全使用千兆交换机和网线进行数据传输，确保网络的通畅性。
