What is AppsAnywhere and Cloudpaging?

Waubonsee students and employees can access Waubonsee’s classroom software applications remotely using AppsAnywhere, an app store-style platform.

The AppsAnywhere solution from Software2 will enable Waubonsee IT to efficiently deliver most Windows software applications to any computer platform on-demand. Waubonsee users can use the client to download/launch available software remotely.

The Cloudpaging Player is the unique piece of Windows software that “plays” the provisioned applications on the end users' virtual or physical devices. AppsAnywhere with Cloudpaging creates a virtual layer on the computer where the apps are delivered on-demand, but still run locally. Once downloaded, Waubonsee software may be accessed and launched again through the Cloudpaging Player.

Notes:

  • Software is assigned to users based on their role at the college and/or the classes for which they are registered.
  • Waubonsee computer users may also continue to access software through the ZENworks AppLauncher.
