Education software company NetSupport  announces the immediate availability of NetSupport School version 11.20, the latest update to its classroom management solution. 

Teachers and technicians now have the capability to interact with and control student machines that are running the Windows 8 start screen (Metro) – including the ability to manage and control the use of applications on the desktop and apps on the Windows 8 start screen.

Internet monitoring and control is also extended to include managing students using the Internet Explorer “app” on the Windows start screen, forcing search engine safe seach modes on as well as extending approved and blocked URL lists. 
Centrally, the NetSupport School Technician’s Console has been extended to allow application use policies to include Windows 8 apps and internet restrictions.  

Version 11.20 extends NetSupport School’s support for Google Chrome OS Chromebooks.
Tteachers can now interact directly with the students' desktops with real-time remote control, deliver quick surveys, send messages, create a student attendance register and show their screen in real time to all selected student Chromebooks.
