    Looking to share my desktop, mouse, and keyboard inputs

    I'd like a website and server that allows me to share access to games that I've written for my students.
    I do not want to share the games themselves, rather I'd prefer to run it locally on my machine and run a server program that allows me to provide a single use url to my student.
    They would then have access to the desktop, keyboard, and mouse through a webpage.
    Join.me allows these features for the low low price of $19.99 per month which is too high for me.
    I imagine that I'd need to get a domain name and some additional services, but as this is only every a one on one service I can't imagine I'd need anything too expensive.

    Is there an existing product like this?
    If not what technologies and packages would I need to learn about to make this myself?

    Thanks a bunch

    No, it is not taking place in a classroom. I teach my students online through Skype.

    The games are computer games that I've written to demonstrate concepts that I am teaching. Usually simple in design and driven by keyboard and mouse inputs with audio and video outputs.
    I like the idea of hosting a game on a virtual machine and making it available online to a single student at a time, so I can watch them as they progress through the game.
    I do not want to distribute the games though, nor make them available on a regular website for everyone.
