As we head into the semester break, we want to remind all UVM students, faculty and staff that they are now able to remotely access a number of software packages anytime and anywhere and on any device by visiting the newly unveiled software portal (https://software.uvm.edu).
Powered by AppsAnywhere, this is new service is a replacement of the UVM software download site and improves upon the previous delivery method in several key ways:
- By logging into the site with your UVM NetID, the service will determine which software should be accessible to you based on your role at UVM (whether you should receive the instructor or student versions of software, for example).
- It takes your device, operating system and location into consideration when determining which software to make available to you and how to deliver it so that it runs effectively.
- Software that was typically only provided in campus computer labs can be made accessible to you remotely (even if it’s Windows software and you’re using a Mac). The list of available options will grow as the semester continues.
One of the greatest benefits of this new software portal is that it allows the user to launch or download software simply by clicking on the software title. Additionally, the features of the portal are easy to use and we encourage all members of the UVM community to visit the software portal at software.uvm.edu. Log in with your UVM NetID and password, and then browse the list of software in the "Available" tab.
Wondering why some software is showing up as “Unavailable” to you? Need software you don’t see on your list? Read this AppsAnywhere Knowledge Base article for more information about this service, for help troubleshooting any issues, and to submit a software request form.
