London, U.K (PRWEB) May 9, 2005
As the use of computers and the Internet in schools grows, so does the need for managing the learning process in networked classrooms.
With the release of NetSupport School 8.0, teachers and trainers are able to better instruct, monitor and support students in networked classrooms. The new version of NetSupport School, due for general release mid-May, includes an automated Lesson Planner Suite, a totally new User Interface, a 100% faster performance engine, extended Student Testing Modules and a range of additional key enhancements designed to maximise computer usersÂ productivity in the classroom.
ÂGiven the increasing investment into IT resources, implementing effective solutions to support the IT function and to ensure an optimum return is delivered from them, has become a primary objectiveÂ says Marcus Kingsley, Group Marketing Manager. ÂWith NetSupport School, teachers and trainers can improve the efficiency of classroom instruction by centrally instructing students on their computer, keep students on task by monitoring their application and web usage and improve the support provided through online help and chat requests.Â
New features in NetSupport School 8.0 include a new performance engine that is over 100% faster than the previous version, a new student attendance register feature, fully automated Lesson Plans, easy ÂClass WizardÂ, an interactive Lesson Timer, a new Interactive Whiteboard feature for greater collaboration, Student Auto-Reconnect, updates to both the Show and Monitor features and significant enhancements to both the Application and Internet Control modules.
With NetSupport School 8.0, teachers and trainers can ensure that those in the computer lab are making progress on their assigned tasks, using only approved applications and visiting only approved websites. Teachers and trainers can also record all screen, keyboard and mouse activity on a student workstation to review later or replay to the class.
