So sorry we didn't catch up at Accessing Higher Ground!
For labs and tutoring sessions, we use either interpreters or TypeWell
transcription to ensure that communication is clear and concise. (You know
the problems of voice recognition and the trouble it can get a user into!)
While a tutor and student could use two computers to communicate, using
interpreters or transcription makes the process flow much better and more
can actually be accomplished during the limited time they have together.
As for the dual computers for communication, you may be thinking of UbiDuo.
But really just two netbooks with chat set up could serve the same purpose.
Hope you're doing well!
