Using Classroom View (beta)
Classroom View enables faculty to monitor and assist students. Using screen-sharing technology, Classroom View provides a real-time view of the desktops of all students who are online – all from a single screen.
Students are notified when their screen is being viewed, and faculty must request access for full control of the student’s desktop.
This short guide will show you step-by-step how to:
