Nexus Integration with Apporto

Apporto is a cloud based virtual computer lab available to all Union College faculty, staff, and students. Apporto supports an Integration to Nexus that will allow students to sign in directly into Apporto from Nexus, and automatically assigns any class resources to them. If you're using Apporto for your class, this integration is the best way to have your students sign in.
