Mouselight y Mouseposé: ensalzando partes de la pantalla

MouselIght para windows y MousePose para mac hacen exactamente lo que se ve en la imagen:

screen. Whether its for a product demo, presentation, screencast or a
lecture, this problem still exists. MouseLight tries to eliminate this

"MouseLight puts a "spotlight" around your cursor and
dims the surrounding area which enables your audience to effortlessly
follow your path of movement on the screen."

iTALC: Control remoto de los ordenadores de los alumnos

iTALC. Esta aplicación de uso libre permite controlar los ordenadores de los alumnos en linux y windows. Aquí dejo un listado de funcionalidades

What is iTALC?

iTALC is a use- and powerful didactical tool for teachers. It lets you view and control other computers in your network in several ways. It supports Linux and Windows 2000/XP/Vista and it even can be used transparently in mixed environments!


iTALC has been designed for usage in school. Therefore it offers a lot of possibilities to teachers, such as
  • see what's going on in computer-labs by using overview mode and make snapshots
  • remote-control computers to support and help other people
  • show a demo (either in fullscreen or in a window) - the teacher's screen is shown on all student's computers in realtime
  • lock workstations for moving undivided attention to teacher
  • send text-messages to students
  • powering on/off and rebooting computers per remote
  • remote logon and logoff and remote execution of arbitrary commands/scripts
  • home-schooling - iTALC's network-technology is not restricted to a subnet and therefore students at home can join lessons via VPN-connections just by installing iTALC client
Furthermore iTALC is optimized for usage on multi-core systems (by making heavy use of threads). No matter how many cores you have, iTALC can make use of all of them.
