    Language Lab

    Hello!

    Wasn't sure where to post this but here seems as good a place as any!

    We are in the process of turning one of our IT Suites into a Language Lab, and I was wondering what systems / software others are using. We are after a solution that does the following:

    -Remote control (view and control of student's machines)
    -Audio chat - within groups and listening from the teacher via headphones
    -Facility to record voice
    -Streaming media from a variety of means (CD, DVD, VHS etc)
    -Teacher Demonstrations to the desktop
    -Built in assessment
    -Record to CD

    Is there anything people are using that facilitates all of the above in one package?? We used to have a Tandberg Divace setup that has long since decayed and we are in need of a replacement.

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    We use something called Divace, I think it has changed hands a few times, but seems like a good product. here's the link:

    a good remote control package might be something like
    http://www.netop.com

    or go for some sort of VNC thing. Dameware do quite a good little tool... http://www.dameware.com

    For streaming, you might want to investigate the Windows Media Streaming Server.

    Teacher demos to the desktop... I spotted this recently:

    Record to CD... just use a normal CD burning tool like Nero or Roxio (there are other free ones around, http://www.cdburnerxp.se/ for example)

    We're using Divace and I use Ranger Remote to help keep them on-task. Investigating ClickView for video storage and streaming.

    In what way has your Divace decayed? Would it be worth fixing it, or have you had hardware damaged?
