Computer training tool
LinkNet-II is an interactive instruction and monitoring system that allows instructors to demonstrate computer tasks directly on students' monitors, and to scan students' progress from a single console. It also displays the instructor's screen on each student's monitor, so his mouse will move in real time on all screens. And an instructor can take control of a student's screen to give help, then return control to the student.
