NetSupport School 7.5
As the use of computers and the Internet in schools continues to grow, so d'es the need for managing the learning process in networked classrooms. NetSupport School is a classroom instruction, monitoring and polling tool that lets teachers train students in the computer lab, simply and effectively. Teachers and trainers can use the software to easily demonstrate, monitor, quiz and interact with their students. New features in NetSupport School 7.5 include a monitor mode that allows an instructor to display a thumbnail view of student workstations, student testing enhancements, a record and replay feature, as well as enhanced application and Internet control modules.
With NetSupport School 7.5, teachers and trainers can make sure that students in the computer lab are making progress on their assigned tasks by using only approved applications and visiting only approved Web sites. Teachers and trainers can also record all screen, keyboard and mouse activities on a student workstation to review later or replay to the class. From the standpoint of increasingly strapped school technology budgets, the software enables teachers to make the most of the computer lab equipment they already have.
Available fully localized in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Arabic, NetSupport School is the ideal application for computer-based training, group work, monitoring, examinations and one-to-one instruction.
