Software Helps Create Virtual Classrooms is now using NetOp School software to provide software training live via the Internet. NetOp School enables an instructor to increase student productivity by being able to monitor their PC activity while they work. Teachers can also enhance classroom interactivity with the program by broadcasting live demo screens to participants, marking up the featured screen to highlight a lesson, creating monitored chat rooms, or allowing students to send private questions via an instant-message button on their PC.
