We're looking for inexpensive/free remote control software as well. 
I wonder if anyone has any updates to this thread that they may have found.

We'd like something that works across mac, pc and Chromebooks that allows for remote keyboard/mouse control (Helpdesk style).
This would be across buildings so a web based solution would be best.

Join.me requires creating an account (something that might be cumbersome for the users that we are trying to help).
VNC Single Click looks to be .exe only.
I looked at Crankwheel but it is only screen viewing, not remote control. It's a google extension and easy to drive for what it does.

Any pointers?

Thanks,
Dennis

Hi all,

First post to this list:  What are other schools using for remote control solutions?  I used to use a product called ScreenConnect, which worked really well, but their price has gone up and is not subscription based.  Anyone have any thoughts, opinions?

Thanks!
