Abstract

At this moment, the importance of computers in all the areas of knowledge is undeniable. Students must acquire competencies in computer use during their primary and secondary studies. Later on, during college education they must learn to use basic computer science tools used in their respective disciplines. On many occasions the professor is the person who designs the lab set-up, and also sets the configuration, installs and maintains all the computers. These tasks, especially the maintenance of the software and hardware environment, are not simple because, among other reasons, the design of a laboratory determines who uses it and how. Besides, those tasks are very important, as shown by all the research in the literature. In this paper we present a tool that simplifies this work in a very noteworthy way. That tool centralizes the installation, configuration and maintenance of the applications in a remote single server. Ill. 4, bibl. 15 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
