Introduction to NetSupport:
Computer Monitoring Software for Control of Student Lab Computers

 

NetSupport is a computer monitoring program that faculty can use to control the student interface experience in our computing lab facilities at Baruch College. The program allows for controlling the student-experience during instructor demonstrations and exams, quickly distributing a set of files to each student computer, interactive learning and more.

 

In particular, from the instructor station of a lab, faculty members can perform the following:

 

  • Watch, share or control each student?s screen, keyboard and mouse
  • Block student use, either temporarily or permanently, of applications, functions, websites, webpages, etc.
  • Transfer and manipulate files between workstations using the ?drag and drop? feature
  • View more than one student screen at a time as ?thumbnails? on the instructor screen
  • Launch an application, video, PowerPoint, etc. on one, many or all student workstations
  • Display a selected student?s screen to other students
  • ?Push out? the instructor screen to selected or all student screens
  • ?Blank out? all student screens temporarily so that the student focus is exclusively on the instructor

 

NetSupport is a powerful application, which is capable of performing many other functions than those listed above.
