ATLANTA (PRWEB) August 25, 2020
To support schools with the ongoing challenge of providing remote and blended learning (a lasting impact from coronavirus), NetSupport has launched its new, easy-to-use, cloud-based, teaching and classroom management platform, classroom.cloud.
Whether in a school classroom, at home, or a hybrid of both, classroom.cloud enables teachers to lead learning in any location with ease, and most importantly, deliver a sense of continuity. This not only helps to minimize disruption for students (which can have a negative impact on learning outcomes) but also supports teachers' wellbeing by removing the extra stress in having to switch platforms.
Using a simple dashboard, teachers can select the class they wish to teach and are automatically connected to the relevant student devices. Within minutes, teachers can run ‘live’ lessons that are engaging, interactive, and will keep students immersed and on target for success. Combined with its classroom management tools, such as screen monitoring and website and application metering, teachers can also manage student behavior online, ensuring they are safe and on task.
As schools prepare for the new school year, from today NetSupport is offering the chance to try classroom.cloud free for 30 days, to help schools ensure it’s the right fit for them.
Marcus Kingsley, CEO of NetSupport Inc, explains:
“During such unsettling times, educators now have the added challenge of facilitating learning environments that produce positive student outcomes, while keeping all stakeholders safe and healthy. Meeting these needs will inevitably impact on instructional delivery models, leading to the adoption of new technologies. Drawing on the experience of teachers around the world, as well as our own 30-year tenure as a leading educational solution provider, we have built a platform to specifically support instructional staff in delivering quality learning experiences, no matter where they or their students are located. Having one platform to seamlessly switch between in-person and online learning provides valuable continuity without disruption, while offering tools that capture feedback, monitor and manage online behavior, and ensure students remain on-task and engaged.”
Features of classroom.cloud include:
- Connect to students’ devices quickly and easily by a range of methods
- Interact with students in real time via chat, messages and help requests
- Assess progress and topic understanding with class surveys
- Monitor students’ screens, web and app use to ensure they’re on task
- Stay safe with ‘allowed’ and ‘restricted’ website and application lists
- Gain attention by locking or blanking students’ screens
- Designed for use with Microsoft SDS or Google Classroom platforms for maximum flexibility when creating your classes
- Multi-platform support for use with a mix of devices
Easy to set up, configure, manage, and use, classroom.cloud integrates directly with a school’s existing infrastructure, with the ability to easily manage teacher and student devices centrally.
Kingsley concludes, “To address common barriers to IT adoption and for technicians dealing with the technical challenges of remote learning models, classroom.cloud is extremely easy to integrate and can be deployed in minutes. With clear, central configuration and management, its scalability is ideal for individual schools to the largest districts. Once set up, the IT team’s involvement is minimal – plus, for teachers, using its intuitive interface is a breeze. As schools embark on a new academic year, we are keen to support teachers and IT teams to embrace technology that enables great teacher-led learning, without the burden of onerous admin.”
