About AppsAnywhere

Give your students a better experience by making university software available anywhere, anytime. The BCNET AppsAnywhere agreement offers competitive pricing on the app store-style platform that gives students access to all the software they need. The student-centric solution enables the distribution, installation and management license control of your institution’s licensed software titles for all users.  

What You Will Get

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 links  

  • Retrieve the information required to launch any of the referenced apps  

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.
