Apps on Demand

Apps on Demand is Cornell's academic virtual endpoint service.  It utilizes Amazon AppStream 2.0 or Azure Virtual Desktop, to provide students and faculty access to desktop applications through their HTML5-capable web browsers. This service's main goal is to provide specialized software necessary for each course without requiring each student to purchase the application.

To continue to support Cornell University’s academic mission, Apps on Demand is an evolution toward cloud-based computer labs that can complement or, in some cases, replace full reliance on traditional physical computer labs for course work. Apps on Demand allows the flexibility of using course required software from a person’s own computer, at a time and location of their choosing, using cloud processing power.
