Virtual Computer Lab – Apporto




Welcome to UCI’s newest virtual computer lab service. We are excited to offer the ability to run specialized instructional/classroom software within an internet browser. Here are some of the improvements you will notice:

  • Apporto is operating system agnostic. All it requires is an HTML5 compliant web browser (e.g. Firefox, Edge, Chrome or Safari) and you can access the virtual lab from any computer right inside the browser.
  • Apporto opens virtualized instances of only the software you want to use. If you want to run SPSS for example, you just click on SPSS and it opens that software in a virtual container, directly in your browser.
  • Apporto enables you to save files or data in the VCL under your login credentials so you can use that data across applications or come back to it later.

Applications available on the new Virtual Computer Lab Desktop are:

  • Stata
  • SPSS
  • Cran R
  • R Studio
  • Matlab

Applications that will soon be available are:

  • ArcGIS
  • Eviews
