Use Cases for TeamViewer’s Mac Remote Control Functionality
Using TeamViewer’s Mac remote desktop connection allows for interactive classroom management, for instance, by letting instructors supervise project work among students. This involves everything from screen sharing, to making sure pupils are using the right tools, to locking all screens simultaneously so that you regain the undivided attention of the class.
With TeamViewer, administrators can perform maintenance work on a group of computers and schedule network shutdown for holidays. Moreover, the Mac clients’ start-up disks can be changed for diagnostic and troubleshooting purposes, while software can be deployed to the entire network.
Support teams can respond to questions from colleagues or customers by logging into computers in their network using TeamViewer, observing directly what they are dealing with, and either fix the problem or give advice on how to proceed. The host computer can share their screen, send messages or engage through a chat function.
