Dyknow Remote Desktop Tools

Tod Karpinski

This project consists of extending the DyKnow Vision product to include Remote Desktop Tools. These tools would allow a teacher or administrator to remotely control another computer with DyKnow installed. It would use the pre-existing infrastructure from DyKnow's Demonstration mode, which collects the video output from a machine and transmits it to many other machines. The features included in the Remote Control would include: mouse and keyboard interaction, interactive chat, and remote file installation and execution. This will allow the teacher to use DyKnow in the class room as both an administrative tool and a corrective tool, for example a teacher can demonstrate to a student on their own computer what needs to be done within the class.
