"iTalc is one of those programs that, when you see it up and running, is a thing of brilliance. But what is it? iTALC is a didactical tool that allows a teacher to view and/or control a students' PC on the internal network in multiple ways. It supports Linux and Windows and can be used in transparently in mixed environments.

"iTALC has a clean interface, is not insanely difficult to set up, works beautifully, and is FREE (both in cost and in source). With iTALC you can see what is going on in your classroom in overview mode, remote-control a PC, show a demo, lock workstations, send messages to students, power on/off machines, login/logout students. In this tutorial I am going to show you how to get iTALC up and running on two Ubuntu 9.10 machines. From that you should be able to re-create the steps to have an entire classroom working."
