How about having it flick through the different clients like a slide

you see each desktop for a few seconds before switching to the next.
Just an idea, don't know if anyone would know how. I imagine it could be
done with a script but not sure.

Also I use K12LTSP but I don't use the LTSP bit to connect terminals. I
have to use nx at the moment and would love a way to have the Teacher
Tool work for these users. Any ideas?

This is not something I can do easily, since you have the NX client
running on a seperate machine. With ltsp it's easy because I don't
need any authentication to take over the remote client machine (I am
already root on the ltsp server or sudo). So with NX I would need to
make a new version that employs ssh keys and that opens up a whole new
bag of worms.

Does anyone know if NX even has a provision for multiple viewers on the same frame buffer? You could, of course run a vnc server at the machine/OS level wherever the users are running NX which would probably work with the existing teachertool.
