From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Windows MultiPoint is a technology that enables the use of multiple pointing devices on the same computer.[1] This technology is particularly useful in schools, where a small group of students can use the same computer simultaneously.[2] It was developed for the needs of developing countries where there may only be a limited number of computers available. The technology was conceived in the summer of 2005 and it was launched in December 2006.[3][4]

Microsoft has made available a MultiPoint SDK for applications. Today various education ISVs and publishers around the world such as Scholastic and SIVECO Romania are developing and piloting applications built using the SDK. Microsoft has also introduced Windows MultiPoint Server, a Windows-based SKU that uses MultiPoint technology in conjunction with Remote Desktop Services to provide multiple users the ability to access a single computer from a separate monitor with only an additional USB 2.0 mouse and keyboard required.[5]
