NetSupport has released NetSupport Assist, which helps teachers to manage and engage with their students in a Mac and Linux environment. Student thumbnails enable teachers to monitor the entire class in a single real-time view, each thumbnail displaying visual indicators to show when applications and websites are in use. To ensure the resources being accessed by each student are appropriate, switch to a view that details which files and websites are open and if needed, take remedial action to block the internet.
Teachers can discreetly view an individual desktop to confirm the student is on task and, for example, conduct a two-way chat session without disrupting the rest of the room.
