computer lab management software
« on: March 24, 2009, 08:35:32 AM »
Since there are a few here who work in educatioin I thought this piece of software might be useful.  It allows for classroom management of computers.  I have not installed it yet but am looking to try it out before deploying it in our labs next fall.  Perhaps someone here has already tried it or knows of another one.

A quote from their site

iTALC has been designed for usage in school. Therefore it offers a lot of possibilities to teachers, such as

    * see what's going on in computer-labs by using overview mode and make snapshots
    * remote-control computers to support and help other people
    * show a demo (either in fullscreen or in a window) - the teacher's screen is shown on all student's computers in realtime
    * lock workstations for moving undivided attention to teacher
    * send text-messages to students
    * powering on/off and rebooting computers per remote
    * remote logon and logoff and remote execution of arbitrary commands/scripts
    * home-schooling - iTALC's network-technology is not restricted to a subnet and therefore students at home can join lessons via VPN-connections just by installing iTALC client
