I’m getting ready to start testing a classroom management software called Veyon and wanted to see if there were alternatives I should look at. The biggest factor is that it needs to be free. My budget has been clamped down to only the support contracts that are required.
The one big feature that Veyon is lacking is audio when running in demonstration mode. That one thing would let me offer spillover students to get the same lecture without having to use zoom/teams which is proving to be slightly problematic to install and awkward to run with other applications. Spillover students will be in a second classroom to maintain distancing rules.
Since Veyon works on VNC, it may never have audio with the demo mode.

If you have anything that works on Windows that I should look at, please let me know.
