Netop™ announced a new version of MyVision. MyVision Basic now includes a new comprehensive chat feature that allows for individual or whole-class chat.  A trial of the new version is available  at www.netop.com/trymyvision.
With the release of version 3.1, educators can now chat directly with individual students, or facilitate a whole-class discussion. Instructors always see all student names, but can allow for anonymity among students to encourage participation. The teacher can also turn on or off the ability for students to initiate chats. The chat window is hidden when not in use and chat history is automatically stored for reference.
MyVision Free is available to all schools as a free download. Teachers can supervise student computer use, monitor Web browsing, assess student progress, identify students who need extra help and improve classroom time on task.
