+LON-CAPA also offers a \textbf{Remote Control} menu. The Remote Control is a separate pop-up browser window, and is automatically

To enable and experiment with the Remote Control menu, navigate to: Main Menu>My Space>Set my user preferences>Content Display Settings>Launch Remote Control. To exit from the remote, either close the window, or look for the inline menu command to exit on the upper right of the parent browser window.
