Virtual apps allows UWF students, faculty, and staff to access computer applications via the Internet regardless of their location. When using virtual apps, it appears as though you are sitting in front of a workstation in a campus computer lab. Virtual Apps include ArgoApps and eDesktop.
ArgoApps are hosted applications & virtual desktops that allow UWF students, faculty, and staff to access specialized computer applications via the Internet. There are two ways to access ArgoApps. Some users may prefer the convenience of using their web browser while other users appreciate the additional functionality of the client-based application.
Many applications are available to all users such as Microsoft Office 2016 (windows version), SPSS, SAS, Solidworks, and Mathcad.
