Classwand is a tool for educators, trainers, or organizations desiring real time interaction with Mac users. It is a tool for crafting media intensive lessons using files of your choice. Whether it be iWork documents, video podcasts, Web pages, photographs, musical compositions, or other files, all of them come to life as you perform magical tasks to users' Macs. Take your lessons to the next level by distributing your files and seeing them open on one or a hundred Macs in the room with one click.

You can then collect them back if you desire (say, for an exam or questionnaire). If you choose, project your screen as a slideshow on your students' Macs so that everyone sees you as you instruct without them having to do any login or other action. Find a specific computer quickly and control it if they need your help. Imagine giving a talk with colleagues, distributing a file and then later once they save their work being able to collect it, as if by magic, into a portfolio without them having to use a file share, or e-mail. Each file can be marked up or graded and sent back to the student.
