Pros: First, it's really easy to understand, all menu are great placed, the installation is flawless, you can freeze the student computer , send your screen to student computer, in the test you can control and see what user do on the computer, professor like this feature, since we got that the cheating have dropped a lot, student cannot lie to the professor.

Cons: I dont find any cons, the only thing is one time we have got a problem with french keyboard character but Faronic have issue a update for that and since we not got any problem with the software.

Overall: Chaeting have dropped, Recommend this Software to all class in the world !

Pros: I do like that teachers can see their student's monitors and can have some control on what the students are doing on the device. This is a needed service for districts with 1:1 initiatives.

Cons: The software seems to have a lot of glitches. There are also a lot of loopholes students find to work around it. The restriction process isn't overly hard but for my teachers who are not tech savvy there was a sharper learning curve.

Overall: If you are a 1:1 districts with laptops or desktops, this is a good option for device management. It does work better on Desktops than Laptops.

Pros: This tool allows a professor to display or view any screen in a classroom. It is a clean interface. I have used it for collaborative learning, student presentations and for test proctoring.

Cons: I think it is pretty easy for a professor to learn to use and it is what they are asking for. But it does require a faculty member to change how they teach and I believe that is one reason for slow adoption.

Overall: I think it is a great tool for managing a lab full of students. I can see, manage and present to any computer.

Pros: This tool allows instructors to train, help, supervise and communicate with a whole class from a central computer. In this way you can achieve better educational performance

Cons: When the connection is slow a certain delay is generated, this would be the only negative. Of the rest, it is an excellent tool
