Funamo, a leader in parental control software for mobile devices, is pleased to announce the start of the Beta program for its Tablet Management System School Edition. Schools and districts interested in participating in the Beta program please contact Funamo to sign up.
“Schools are adopting mobile technologies in the classrooms, integrating tablets into their curriculum.” said Howard Li, Funamo’s founder and CEO. “Funamo Tablet Management System is designed to empower teachers and schools with all the tools that they need to effectively deploy, manage, update and administer these tablets in a controlled environment.”
Funamo Tablet Management System School Edition is a comprehensive cloud-based solution. It consists of three main components – Funamo Android application, Funamo Control Panel and Funamo Tablet Configurator.
The Funamo application runs on all versions of Android devices including the popular Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire Tablets. It offers highly robust internet filtering technology and application control capability to keep students safe and on-task. Funamo blocks pornography web sites and enforces SafeSearch for major search engines, making the tablets CIPA (Child Internet Protection Act) compliant. Teachers can customize internet access with their own blacklist and whitelist, or they can use the whitelist-only mode to block all websites except for the ones pre-selected in the whitelist. The application control feature allows teachers to pick specific applications for their classes and prohibit access to others.
The cloud-based Funamo Control Panel is a web service that enables school IT administrators to easily manage all tablets from any web browser. Teachers can also use it to make changes to the control settings for their class and the changes are synchronized with all student devices in real time. The web interface is easy to use and requires minimal training.
Funamo Tablet Configurator is a cross-platform tool for school IT administrators to create and maintain device profiles which can be replicated onto all student devices in the same class. It automates all the manual and repetitive work, significantly reducing the provision time for deploying hundreds or thousands of tablets.
Schools participating in the Beta program will receive Funamo Tablet Management System free of charge during the Beta period and additional discount in final deployment. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request more information or a live demo of the total solution.
