Aruba Networks, Inc., provider of network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, and ArubaEdge partner, Stoneware, a manufacturer of cloud computing and classroom management software, today announced that they have teamed to offer Wi-Fi with new levels of classroom control and student interaction with LanSchool Lite Plus, exclusively to Aruba customers.

Features include:

  • Cost-effective controller-less Wi-Fi for high density classrooms
  • Helps teachers remove distractions, providing them with a full view of student desktops from their own computer, so they can launch websites, block applications and keep students on task
  • With Aruba ClearPass BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) support, schools can create a mix of district-issued and student/staff-owned, personal mobile devices

LanSchool Lite Plus is a new version of Stoneware’s LanSchool classroom management and monitoring tool that has been designed for Aruba and is available immediately, free of charge, to Aruba WLAN customers. The program gives teachers a dashboard to monitor up to 3,000 students in one view. In addition to the existing capabilities of the LanSchool Lite software which includes real-time computer thumbnail monitoring, full-screen view of students’ monitors and viewing of students’ active applications and last-visited websites, the new LanSchool Lite Plus for Aruba customers enables Internet co-browsing and the ability to turn web access on or off.

Aruba customers can now register to receive a free copy of LanSchool Lite Plus and learn more about the combined Aruba and LanSchool solution, at the following link: http://cloud.arubanetworks.com/products/lanschool.
