Education software provider NetSupport, has released NetSupport School v10.5.
With many subject areas now dependent on the use of PCs, teachers need the appropriate management tools to ensure students are using the technology for the intended purpose. Traditional ICT and language learning are areas where students can be easily distracted from the task in hand.
Classroom Management solution NetSupport School offers a range of PC Monitoring and Control tools, including the new Audio Monitoring. In a computer-led language lesson, can you be sure that students are furthering their French skills rather than listening to the latest download music chart?
Student thumbnails display indicators to show which PCs have live audio and/or microphone feeds. The teacher can then discreetly listen to individual students to confirm that they are on task (or otherwise) and, if needed, conduct a two-way chat session with the student without disrupting the rest of the room.
An innovative record and playback feature enables key learning points to be saved and replayed to the student or the whole class.
Version 10.5 also adds improved connectivity performance across networks, introduces a new ‘connect to room’ option and enhances support for Terminal Server and Thin Client environments.
