Cluster Teaching Facilities

Larger clusters used for teaching have AV and a designated tutor console (similar to those in common user rooms).  Software and presentations on the tutor PC can be projected and displayed on AV screens in the cluster.

Teaching staff can also make use of a software tool NetSupport School on this tutor console to broadcast content to all cluster PC screens, or to groups of PCs in the cluster.
