As mentioned Telnet, SSH when in GUI any of the terminal windows, ie, Gnome Terminal, Kconsole, Linux Terminal, X-Term, etc. Then telnet or ssh within the terminal sessions.
Ask your instructors and sysadmins for instructions on how to remotely connect to your class Cisco routers.
You might need to configure either dial-up, VPN or other Internet connection for telnet/ssh access and they will give you the correct connection information, like dialup numbers, url, IPv4 address, passwords, etc.

They use telnet? How daring of them. Then use telnet in linux.
And for rs232 you can use minicom.
