If you are a teacher, you should definitely look at ATutor. It is
online software that allows you to manage courses and that gives
students a way of keeping track of coursework.
"With ATutor, you can post assignments, tests, grades and more.
Students can create accounts and keep track of their particular
classes and assignments. Students and teachers can also keep in
touch with one another via email and messaging.
iTalc is a powerful didactical tool that allows you to watch and
control computers for educational purposes. You can show demos and
even lock computers to get the attention of your students.
"iTalc will also allow you to reboot or shut down machines
remotely. And unlike other more costly tools, iTalc is free and
released under the GPL. iTalc also supports Linux and Windows XP
and will soon support Windows Vista."
