COPENHAGEN (PRWEB) April 29, 2005
Danware, provider of the worldÂs most comprehensive computer-based teaching software, announced today the new NetOp School 4.0 with a scheduled mid May release.
NetOp School is a powerful tool enabling teachers to monitor and control student PCs in a computer equipped classroom environment. Teachers can simultaneously view multiple studentsÂ screens as thumbnail images on a single screen. They can also monitor and control students individually in real-time. And most importantly, it puts the teacher in control of the computer-based classroom, providing a number of tools that help the teacher conduct effective teaching sessions.
Ole Haag, Product Manager for NetOp School explains: ÂNetOp School gives all students first-hand instruction and in effect, a front-row seat in the classroom. Teachers can choose to allow students to work independently while monitoring their individual progress. WhatÂs more, using the Lock feature, teachers can be confident that they are always in control because they can obtain the immediate attention of the whole class at the click of a button, locking the mouse, screen, and keyboard of every student in order to present new information or keep students on track. They can even control the studentsÂ use of applications and Internet.Â
NetOp SchoolÂs new integrated Test Center facility provides teachers with an effective tool for producing and administering tests and surveys over a network connection. Now teachers can generate tests from a variety of question types, including multiple-choice, match text, match image, drop-down list, label image, ordering, essay, and even text completion dictation. Additional configurations enable teachers to set time limits on questions, get real-time reporting, and even administer auto-scoring for immediate test results. Questions may also include information resources such as external Web links and files.
This dynamic educational tool is easy to set up and easy to learn, even for people who are less confident in front of a PC. Easy to use 1-2-3 Wizards provide simple instructions for walking users through the applicationÂs many features.
NetOp School now has video streaming capabilities to enable teachers and students to see each other during audio or chat sessions. Now, with the use of a webcam, networked classroom attendees can engage in video conferencing for remote training and distance learning implementations. Additionally, teachers now have the ability to take snapshots of their studentsÂ screens for later discussion or for reprimanding students for the improper use of their computers.
