London, UK (PRWEB) March 9, 2006
As the use of computers and the Internet in schools grows, so does the need for managing the learning process in networked classrooms. With NetSupport School 8.02 software, teachers and trainers are able to better instruct, monitor, quiz and support students in networked classrooms. The latest update of NSS includes optimization for wireless networks, 33% faster network performance, extended web browser support and a portable tutor feature. The free upgrade for NetSupport School 8.0 customers and evaluators is currently available for immediate download.
Having set the standard for classroom IT training for well over a decade, NetSupport School now embraces the evolution of the wireless networked classroom, where school and college environments offer "wireless access points" situated around their buildings, allowing access for all devices to a single network. NetSupport School can now be optimized to set a data rate to match the wireless network. By optimizing data rates, NetSupport School avoids overloading a wireless network and minimizes data sent.
“IT within the education sector is now evolving at a similar rate to the corporate environment. Networks grow in capability and complexity, creating a continuous challenge for those responsible for the IT infrastructure, of implementing effective solutions to maximize these new complexities.” says Marcus Kingsley, Group Sales and Marketing Director. “With NetSupport School v8.02, attention has been placed on embracing the new technology, specifically wireless networks, which are fast becoming the standard environments in which our educational solutions operate.”
NetSupport School v8.02 also builds on offering the best performance within traditional LAN / WAN environments. This new version represents a 3x improvement in performance in comparison to NetSupport School v8.0. Additional improved functionality includes extended web browser support to complement the existing unique internet control and restrictions feature where active and background URLs running on student PCs can be identified and their usage restricted. NSS v8.02 extends support to allow for Internet control of all browsers that provide IE rendering.
With unbeatable performance, unique mobility through its portable “Tutor” delivering greater accessibility by allowing the Tutor module to be run directly from a USB memory device; innovative feature set including customized tests & surveys, interactive whiteboard, file transfer & distribution plus much more, NSS v.802 rises to the challenge of today’s modern classroom.
