Windows Virtual Desktop

Deliver software through next-gen and hosted virtualization solutions

AppsAnywhere helps students access their apps through Windows Virtual Desktop, giving Higher Ed a single platform for university apps, regardless of operating system, device type, or user context. Take advantage of the benefits of hosted and SaaS solutions rather than legacy VDI to slash costs, boost scalability, access pay-as-you-go usage models, and absorb peripheral costs.

Canvas compatibility

Use AppsAnywhere seamlessly with your existing digital learning resources.

AppsAnywhere is Canvas-ready, allowing you to use complementary features out of the box. Share App Lists in course folders and distribute course-specific apps from the same places students are used to going for other resources. A consistent experience when it comes to accessing software and a familiarity with the process makes working easier and more productive.

App Lists API

Automated syndication of app lists to VLEs and other digital resources.

AppsAnywhere’s all-new API, designed for the sharing and distribution of App Lists, makes providing software access more quick and simple and helps to ensure students know what they can access, and where. Current App Lists API functions are as follows:

  • Retrieve a list of apps in a particular app list
  • Retrieve a list of apps in a particular app list, based on the LMS/VLE course it is linked to
  • Retrieve the information required to launch any of the referenced apps

The Canvas compatibility and App Lists API features were developed in collaboration with The University of Bergen to help Bergen solve all their required use cases. We keep an open line of communication with our customers in our forum and regularly engage with our customers for input, feedback, and feature suggestions.
