Remote sharing of a distant computer

  281apple 17:11 27 Oct 2010

I give English lessons to people in France and Spain and I use Skype now. Someone told me that a Remote Sharing of a distant computer is more efficient. I am now on Windows 7 and am wondering which program could do the trick for me and especially one which is not too technical to understand. Any suggestions please?

Teamviewer is great if you want to help someone remotely, but I would have thought Skype to be better for teaching. With TeamV you can see the other persons desktop and manipulate it as if it were your own.

With TeamViewer not only can you manipulate and deomonstate on the remote computer but you can also use audio and video to communicate with recipient.

You all recommend TeamViewer and I'm going to check it out. Thanks a lot.

Just checked it out but looks kind of expensive for me because I give language training free of charge and Teamviewer is a bit more than I could invest. Thanks anyway.

The one I use is free!

I'll check it out again. I did not notice that it was free. I thought it was free only for a limited period (30 days?) like so many other programs. If it's free, could be good. You are right about Skype because I am now using Skype and it it is fairly good and I wanted to get something a bit better. Since TeamViewer is free, I'll download it and give it a try. Thanks again and I'll let you know one way or the other.
