Virtual Labs: In these labs, real experiments are virtualized or simulated and students can access them online.

Remote Labs: These types of labs enable faculty and students to access equipment and/or computers via the internet to perform experiments and laboratory tasks without being in the physical lab space.

UCF Apps: These apps allow access to desktop software that is typically available only in campus computer labs or by purchasing and installing software on a student PC remotely.
