  • Windows® MultiPoint™ technologiesMicrosoft® MultiPoint™ Mouseallows up to 50 mice to be connected to a single computer and the applications can handle mouse clicks from different users. Each cursor has a different colour or shape, making it easy for students to recognize and control their own mouse.This technology enables you to give each student an opportunity to actively participate in class computing and develop skills while learning in innovative and enjoyable ways. There are already many excellent Microsoft® MultiPoint™ applications available for schools,Windows® MultiPoint™ Server 2010 enables you to connect multiple monitors, mice and keyboards to a single PC to create independent student stations.Students using the stations enjoy a personalised computing experience through the familiar, intuitive Windows® 7 interface. They can work independently using educational software, browsers, the Microsoft® Office suite and applications – just like a lab of computers.Microsoft® MultiPoint™ Mouse Software Development Kit enables developers to create software, such as Mouse Mischief, that students can use with multiple miceWindows Virtual Desktop InfrastructureRemote Desktop Connection allows you and your students to sit at your computer and connect to a remote (terminal) computer in a different location. For example, you can connect to your school computer from your home computer and have access to all of your programs, files, and network resources as though you were in front of your computer at school. You can leave programs running at school, then when you get home you can see your school computer's desktop displayed on your home computer, with the same programs running. Only the user interface of an application is presented on your or your students’ computers. Any input to it is redirected over the network to the terminal computer where all application execution takes place. The terminal computer automates regular desktop management activities like installing software, patches and software packs to school computers, standardises the desktops by applying uniform configurations such as wallpapers, shortcuts, printer, etc., secures the school computers by restricting USB, applying security policies, etc., and enables auditing the network systems with complete hardware/software inventories license compliance details, detecting prohibited usage in network systems, etc. In essence, it helps administrators to automate, standardise, secure, and audit their windows network.
