Collaboration and Remote Screen Control in the Classroom with teleport

In my efforts to try to find ways to transfer learnig scenarios out of Wallenberg Hall I came across an application (Mac only) that supports collaboration of several students on one a remote screen.
Teleport is a prefpane utility to let you use one single mouse and keyboard to control another Mac. Like the Pointright application which runs on top of the iRoom software in the Wallenberg HPLS simply moving the mouse to the edge of your local srceen passes it over to the remote screen. You can move files between machines that very same way – drag them out of the top of your local screen and onto the screen of the remote machine. Multiple connections are possible, and it is possible to control multiples screens remotely. It works smooth on WiFi. And did I mention it is (still) free?

For PC take a look at Synergy or win2vnc.
