Our "Series C" change password tool, allows a member of staff with console access to change the password of an active directory user. A common scenario in a school is that a student will forget their password and then leave the classroom to get it changed by a network manager, with this tool a teacher would be able to alter a students password from their console, saving valuable learning time.
