Virtual Labs

ITSS is working to implement a solution whereby the software applications currently available in our campus labs and classrooms will be made available to staff, faculty and students from any off-campus location. The product that has been chosen to achieve this is Software2’s “Apps Anywhere” product. To learn more about this solution please visit their website.

The goal is to have the following software applications available through a Saint Mary’s App Store in time for the Fall Academic Term.
