The main utility of ControlAula comes from its use and experience in Extremadura classrooms. Many of its features come from the teachers' and sysadmins' feedback. ControlAula's first version was released in 2004 and was based on some bash scripts made by a teacher called Juan Sanguino.ControlAulaHe did some programming tasks at Calamonte Secondary school where he was teaching and called them "Gran Hermano" (Big Brother). Since then, many ideas, documentation and code have been contributed to the growing feature set of the application. The most recent version of ControlAula has been built from scratch, adding some new features and using more robust code, and it is now easier to maintain the software and accept new patches from other people.

You have been warned...
