Remote Computer Access for K12 Schools
August 11, 2020 | Remote Access
The Remote Access Dashboard is a simple way for K12 students and teachers to connect to school computers.
With many K12 districts planning on remote learning for the fall, it’s more important than ever to ensure students have access to the resources they need. Whether you’re providing laptops or giving students remote access to school computers, LabStats can help.
Remote Access for K12 Students
Students can use the LabStats Remote Access Dashboard to remote into school computers from home.
The dashboard shows a list of computers in each computer lab or classroom. Only available computers show up in the dashboard, so there’s no need to reserve or assign machines. Students simply select a computer to remote in to by clicking a “connect” button on your dashboard.
You can have one dashboard that shows every computer on campus, or create separate dashboards for each classroom.
The Remote Access Dashboard works with both Windows and Mac operating systems, and you can track usage even if students are logging in remotely. Students who are using Chromebooks can remote into school computers and run powerful software programs like Adobe.
