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:

Control License Access
AppsAnywhere allows the IT department to easily manage platform access and ensure compliance. Software title access can be controlled based on AD user groups, number of available licenses, device ownership, end-user location, or even operating system. This ensures that your students and staff only have the software they need when they need it.
