i. confirm with Yes and restart the tablet.
2. Log in with local administrator account, which it was established at the
time of installation stations / tablets.
3. Cheking (for tablets) that SSID is in a Block-WIFi.txt type file. If not exists, the
tablet will not be able to access Wi-Fi network.
4. It will make the network settings on „Control Panel -> Network and Internet -
> Network and Sharing Center”, click on „Local Area Connection ->
Properties”, select „Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)”, press
„Properties”, enter and accept network setings. We use DNS ******** server.
5. Connectivity with servers will check by command ping ********. Press
Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt and type ping
command.
6. It will establish the station name after the pattern: XXYYYWS01, XXY-
YWS02.
For WS tablet will replace, for example, with TAB (XXYYTAB01).
7. It will be Join at name_domain.domain with user admin.xx and password
****** , where xx is domain administrator code. With right-click on
63
Computer - > Properties click on “Change settings” press “Change…”, type the
name domain name_domain.domain and applies the settings.
8. Press OK task, a notification will appear that will keep domain name
name_domain.domain, and the computer will restart automatically.
9. After the computer restart, we make log-in with domain administrator
account.
10. To move stations / tablets of Computers in an Organizational Unit (O.U.) is
accessed one Domain Controller server.
11. We type the IP of Domain Controler server. We press “Connect” and enter the
password of domain administrator. If the primary server has occupied all active
connections will be connecting to the secondary server. Disconnecting from the
server is done with Sign out.
12. It will be waiting until the connection is remote server. Will appear a security
message, place check mark on "do not show ..." and click
Yes
, then returns to
desktop.
13. Click on windows logo and search “user and computers”. Is accesed
Active Directory Users and Computers”.
14. Work stations and introduced new tablets will be found in the "Computers" and
they will move in Organizational Unit, created properly. Work Stations will be
introduced in O.U. “Stations”, and tablets in O.U. “Tablets” in proper
domain. Task OK and close the “Active Directory…” window.
15. We leave the server with “Sign out”.
64
16. On work station choose option Start -> All programs -> Accessories ->
Command Prompt and type “gpupdate /force” command, an than press
Enter. When the update is complete, will require restarting the workstation.
This is necessary for policy implementation work within the domain created for
workstations, tablets and servers.
17. We log-in on a computer workstation with an administrator code domain and
change DNS with follows new IP’s: *******, respectively *****.
18. In “cmd”, with “run as administrator” option, type “ipconfig /flushdns”
command and Enter task, to save the new IP’s proper of DNS servers.
19. Following the implementation of policies, on desktop will find two powershell
scripts: one for stations and one for tablets. Is right-click on the appropriate
script (or tablet station) and choose the option “run with powershell…”. After
running the script, the computer will automatically restart. After the restart, it
will continue running the same script until no longer restart the computer
(running script is still 5 times - 6 runs 5 resets). The process will be considered
finished when, after running the script, the computer no longer restarts
automatically.
20. Team Viewer configuration:
- After we log-in on a computer workstation with an administrator account
domain, we can start the TeamViewer software.
- From Extras menu we select Options
- In General tab we select Network settings
- We select PROXY SETTINGS -> CONFIGURE… -> NO PROXY
- And finally INCOMING LAN CONECTION – ACCEPT
If we omitting this step, we loose the remotely managed by assigning to
device on Team Viewer application.
65
- We press OK and close the application.
- If the windows No connection to TeamViewer server, appears, we
click on Don’t show this dialog again and press Cancel.
21. Domain administrators will log on PC or tablets with newly created user
account xx.zzz and password *******, respectively user xx.bbb with
****** password, where xx is a subdomain code (for example company
name, institution, etc.) and check for the desktop icons Google Chrome,
TeamViewer.

4. Conclusions
To achieve a broad internal network data transmission is necessary to
configure all P.C.’s, tablets, and other devices that are part of the network
according to the methodology presented in the paper. This is necessary and to
take remote control of any device (PC, workstation, etc.) of the internal network.
It is very important introduction stations in the field. This is the first step in
creating a very extensive network of data transmission.

The shift towards remote access and control of equipment has become more prominent, especially due to COVID-19 lockdowns. Access to physical/real equipment for practical learning remains important for engineering studies. Thus, this paper presents an approach for remotely accessing and controlling automation equipment for engineering practical activities. Specifically, it addresses the issue of accessing and controlling machines for programmable logic controller (PLC) programming tasks. The combination of a scheduler, remote desktop access, graphical user interface, and a micro-controller allows students to work remotely on practical equipment. The lab computer can be accessed via a remote computer to select one of multiple equipment for practical activities. A prototype system was constructed as proof of concept. The prototype system functions as required.
... The purpose of the screen sharing software is to enable the remote access and control of the computer placed inside the lab which is connected to the hardware. Three options were considered: TeamViewer [10], ISL Online [11], and Web Server [12]. TeamViewer has been selected for use because a functional free version is available that suits the requirements of the application. ...
... It requires at least 6Mbit/s and 1Mbit/s for download and upload connections, respectively. TeamViewer is built on end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption and two-factor authentication among other security features (Drugarin, Draghici, and Raduca 2016). ...

The Corona Virus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has negatively impacted teaching and learning globally, imposing widespread closure of schools from the elementary to tertiary levels. As of 14 April 2020, teaching activities of over 1.75 billion students globally were disrupted in about 200 countries that have implemented full or partial lockdown across the world. At the time of writing, the duration of the current pandemic cannot be ascertained. Therefore, the teaching and learning process should also adapt to the new normal, which includes suitable social distancing, self-isolation and other disruptive guidelines outlined by the World Health Organization. Thus, more than ever, COVID-19 has now emphasized the necessity to embrace different and flexible methods of teaching and, by extension, learning. Therefore, e-teaching and e-learning have emerged as complementary solutions that reduce disruption to educational activities. Despite having a solution in online teaching to reduce the effect of COVID-19 on education, it’s noteworthy that the solution is not available to every educator, learner and school, especially in developing countries. In developing countries, especially across Africa, lack of awareness of the existing online teaching resources and their suitability for remote attendance teaching and lack of skill sets required for using the resources are the issues impeding online teaching. This paper reviews and evaluates twenty-two (22) remote attendance teaching resources, their special features and system requirements. The technical requirements, suitability, and limitations of each application are considered. The implementation challenges of using the resources are discussed, and some solutions are recommended.

COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted teaching and learning globally imposing widespread closure in schools from elementary to tertiary levels. As of April 14th 2020, learning activities of over 1.75 billion students have been disrupted in about 193 countries that have implemented full or partial lockdown. No one is sure how long the pandemic will last, but it is foreseen to have far reaching consequences than 2009 swine flu outbreak in the UK, flu pandemic in 1968; influenza pandemic of 1958; and 1918-1919; Ebola Disease of 2005; or any other infectious diseases previously experienced. COVID_19 pandemics has placed urgent global needs for skilled workers with abilities to work under abnormal conditions with little or no personal contact to deliver health care, manufacture special medications, produce goods and deliver services required for our survival. So this is not the time to stop education process just by school closure as it is only education that can produce man power and professionals needed to match the demand of COVID-19 pandemic time. Rather, this is the time to embrace different and flexible methods of teaching, and by extension learning, as we comply with social distancing and self-isolation. E-teaching and learning has emerged as a solution to minimizing disruption to education until life returns to normalcy. Despite having a solution in online teaching to minimize the effect of COVID-19’s on education, its note worthy that the solution is not available to every educator, learner and school. Lack of online access and the lack of skill-set to utilize online resources for teaching are the two important factors impeding online teaching in African Continent despite the availability of the resources, free of charge, on the internet. Because offer always precede acceptance, e-teaching is first before e-learning. This paper addresses the lack of skills sets required to to use the e-teaching resources, aiming to bring teacher and educators to speed for the use of the resources during and after COVID-19 pandemic. Online teaching resources considered in this study include Zoom, Goggle Hangout, WhatsApp, Goggle Classroom, Meet, and Facebook.
