Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
The walls are coming down on computer labs everywhere, and the concept of the classroom is fast being expanded by the idea of wireless laptops, MacBooks and 1-to-1 laptop schemes. To support this transition, Netop today announced a new version of its affordable MyVision classroom management software that works across subnets.
Available in Free and Basic versions, MyVision is the classroom management software that provides essential tools for teaching with technology at a price any school can afford. Popular with schools who need support for mixed networks of Macs and PCs, MyVision provides tools like active directory integration that make one-to-one computing easier. With the release of version 3.3, MyVision adds the capability for students and teachers to connect in an online classroom anywhere within the local area network.
Schools frequently organize their physical wired or wireless networks into separate segments, called subnets, and often group students, teachers and administrators into different segments. When using the TCP/IP protocols these network segments are referred to as ‘subnets’. With the release of version 3.3, MyVision now enables online classrooms to be formed that work across subnets, connecting disparate groups of students with any teacher. MyVision automatically configures the network settings so that classrooms can start across subnets without any user intervention, providing easy connectivity anywhere within the school's network.
"Netop, the world's largest provider of classroom management software, has long been a leader in supporting connected anywhere computing at schools," said Kurt Bager, CEO of Netop. "With this announcement, all of Netop's classroom management software solutions, including Vision Pro, Vision and MyVision, provide support for communication across subnets, giving schools flexible options to form online classrooms that promote student achievement."
Version 3.3 of MyVision is a free upgrade to all MyVision Basic and Free users, who will be automatically updated upon their next login. New users can access a free trial of MyVision Basic, or download MyVision Free at no charge at http://www.netop.com/trymyvision.
Launched in 2009, MyVision is the entry-level classroom management software offering from Netop designed for teachers who need simple, basic controls over classroom computers. MyVision Basic provides essential tools for teaching with computers, so any teacher can supervise student computer work, chat with students, remote control student computers, share engaging on-screen demonstrations, instantly capture the attention of the class and control student Internet access. Available via low-cost online subscriptions priced at $199 per teacher per year, MyVision Basic is ideal for teachers who have never been able to afford standard classroom management software.
For teachers lacking any budget for software, MyVision Free offers the most fundamental tools for teaching with technology at no charge. With MyVision Free, teachers can supervise student computer use, monitor web browsing, assess student progress, identify students who need extra help and improve classroom time on task. MyVision Free provides a subset of the features in MyVision Basic and may be upgraded seamlessly at any time.
