iTALC – Free Software for Managing School Classroom Computers

iTALC(intelligently Teaching And Learning with Computer) is a free open source software for managing classroom computers in Linux and Windows, which is aimed at a school environment. iTALC enables teachers to remotely monitor and control students’ computers. This allows the teacher to perform demonstrations, to close windows and to shut down the computer. TheĀ  source-code is freely available and you’re free in changing the software to fit your needs as long as you respect the terms of iTALC’s license.[advt]
