Virtual computer labs allow students to use classroom software on their own devices.


Off-campus access to academic software running in on-campus computer labs has always posed a challenge. We have implemented the application virtualization platform called AppsAnywhere, which will allow students to securely access a variety of software from off-campus. 

We are unable to virtualize all software, due to technical and licensing constraints, but we will be working with the faculties to prioritize requests for what is possible

Virtual computer labs utilize AppsAnywhere to provide a library of software accessible on-demand anywhere on or off-campus.
