SoftLINK - Classroom Computer Control Software

SoftLINK is a software classroom management solution designed specifically for individuals who teach in computer based training environments. Furthermore, SoftLINK is an essential instructional resource and can enhance the training capabilities of ANY computer classroom. SoftLINK empowers instructors with the ability to remotely control or monitor student computers, no matter where they are located. Remote access to each student's monitor, keyboard, and mouse is just a small sampling of SoftLINK's many features. SoftLINK also provides instructors the necessary tools to encourage classroom collaboration, engage students with progressive learning, and test student comprehension. Instructors will find that SoftLINK's exceptional delivery methods, broadcasting content directly to each student's monitor or blanking their screens, will help to keep students on task. Using either technique helps to keep each student focused and will lead to an immediate improvement in student retention rates and test scores.

Whether you are a K-12 teacher, a college instructor, a corporate trainer, or a military training instructor, you will benefit by having SoftLINK in your computer training room. SoftLINK will allow you to deliver more content to your students, efficiently and effectively. If you want to lecture your class, select Blank All; all of the trainee's computer screens are instantly disabled and you now have everyone's undivided attention. If you have a slideshow to present, select Show; the slideshow will be displayed directly on the trainees' monitors. Do your trainees access social media websites during class; manage which websites they can and cannot visit. Even gain a better picture of your classes' comprehension by polling the trainees using the Survey feature. As technology budgets are continually under increasing pressure, SoftLINK enables schools, colleges, and corporations to harness the full potential of their training rooms by utilizing the IT infrastructure already in place.

Testimonials

  • "Thank you for keeping me in on the link as well. We hosted our first session for 2014 last week and everything went smoothly. Our students are all adults working in laboratories around the world, they just loved having the ability to see the instructors screen on their desk next to the one they were working with. Huge benefit over having a projected instructors screen in the front of the room."
    Mr. Hindbaugh
  • "Thank you for doing such a great job for us. The entire process, from the initial specs to the final installation was a breeze for us. And learning how to use the system was easy with just a few minutes with Todd. Our instructors love the new system."
    -Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
  • "The Link systems are still going strong, and if asked, can highly recommend them. However, with our ever decreasing budgets, I doubt we'll be able to upgrade any time in the near future. The big problem with making a good product: They last too darn long!"
    -San Mateo Adult School
  • The system works as advertised. It is perfect for our new classrooms.
    -Mr. Sparks, South Plains College
  • "Instructor loves the program and it works great from my end. I gave your name to our middle school tech coordinator as they are thinking about buying the program."
    -Mr. Garvin, Piedmont High School
  • "HSU continues to be quite pleased with SoftLINK. For what it is worth, it is one four most cost efficient and low-maintenance pieces of software. It works as advertised and comes at a very competitive price. For those things, we are thankful.
    -Hardin Simmons University
  • "ACS has great tech support and quick turn-around time. I'm always able to get a hold of Monica and she gets our product to us quickly. The professors really enjoy the "show" and "share" features in the classes. They also like the private chat for students who don't want to ask a question in front of the class. Testing screen is a winner too. I use the Tech console almost exclusively to update our labs either from my office or by going into a closed lab and running Tech console from a laptop. It makes my job go a lot quicker. I love the mass login feature and the remote commands feature. The inventory feature is invaluable. We have also used the Tech Console to catch 1 hacker! In addition, it saves us power. I can pull up the thumbnail of a lab in the late afternoon, see what machines are idle, and just quickly shut them down. I use the "mass copy" feature all the time. I also like the "screen lock" feature when I'm updating from remote and need to keep people off the machines. I couldn't imagine us getting all of our work orders done without Tech Console. We love SoftLINK. I just deployed 3 new labs, and it was the first piece of software that I told my boss "I must have to get these labs knocked out quickly."
    -Cameron University
  • "Our experience with SoftLINK has been excellent. Thank you for providing us with outstanding service through the years. I will definitely keep SoftLINK in mind should I come across future lab projects."
    -Mr. Koo, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
