Is it possible to containerize traditional Windows gui-type desktop applications with Docker?

We are looking for a solution to offer applications to students in our instructional labs remotely. I am focused on Windows applications and would like to know if the Docker for Windows Server 2016 & later allow me to accomplish that objective. The applications are traditional gui-type desktop applications that you would normally install on a Windows OS. Can they be containerized using Docker, deployed, and accessed by users via a web browser?

I have seen a similar situation offered on the Docker for Linux version where the gui application was deployed to users and accessed using a standard web browser, which is what we are ultimately trying to accomplish.

Hello. I have the same question.
