Controlling multiple students at once

Problem: Can I remote control multiple computers at once?

Cause: N/A

Prerequisite(s):
  • LanSchool Teacher and Student

Solution(s):

If all of the computers in the lab are the same basic image or configuration (for example. all Windows XP machines with the same application you want to access) you can remote control them all at the same time, though you will only see the input device and screen of the first machine selected.

To perform the remote control press Ctrl+A (this will select all of the computers) and select Control at the top of your toolbar. You will then be prompted to select Yes or No to control multiple computers at the same time.

This is a great time saving feature if you need to do the same thing to all of the computers at once.
