Classroom Management
Linux, Windows
Veyon (Virtual Eye On Networks, formerly iTALC) is a free and open source software for computer monitoring and classroom management supporting Linux and Windows. It's primarily targeted at the educational sector. Veyon enables teachers to remotely monitor and control students' computers. This allows teachers to perform demonstrations, to close windows and to shut down the computer. Veyon can be used transparently in heterogeneous environments. This means a teacher computer running Linux can easily access student computers running Windows and vice versa. The program has been developed as a free alternative to commercial classroom management solutions.

Features of Veyon include the following:
  • Overview mode (allow previewing screens for each pupil computer in a small preview window)
  • Remote view: Previewing (remote view)computers in predefined classroom segment
  • Remote control: Allows taking control of an individual computer for demonstration, assistance or other necessary action
  • Demonstration mode (either in a frame or window) - where the teacher's screen is broadcast to all of the pupil's computers in real-time
  • Locking student computers, in order to direct attention to other tasks,items of related interest,alert students to proper internet and classroom etiquette
  • Send text messages to students
  • Powering on, rebooting or shutting down individual, or all, computers off over network (Wake on LAN)
