Net Support

  • when networked computers in the class are too much of a good thing...
  • gives you options over
    • limiting net access 
    • locking out certain applications
    • share your screen with the whole or part of the class
    • being able power on/off the machines at the start/end of the day (though I am not sure this is working perfectly)
    • various other things that I haven't really looked at (messaging, sharing files, submitting work)
  • powerful just to use to lock screens when not paying attention
