NetSupport Assist : Mac and Linux Classroom Management
NetSupport Assist delivers the features you would expect from a focused classroom management solution, from monitoring student screens to delivering real-time screen presentations. With NetSupport Assist, teachers can improve the efficiency of classroom teaching by centrally instructing students from their computer. From registering attendance at the start, monitoring activity during and logging off machines at the end of the lesson, NetSupport Assist allows teachers to focus their time and attention on their students, rather than on managing the software.
