Quick Assist is a built-in tool for Windows 10 that allows Faculty, Teaching Assistants, or Students to share screen and if needed, take control of each other computer and help solve a problem (Rhino, AutoCad, etc.)

To get started, you need to launch the Quick Assist app, get a 6-digit code, and share that with your student.
