Award-winning Classroom Monitoring and Management Software Now Provides Trainers with Cost-saving Capabilities, Real-time Support and More Focused Lessons

July 7, 2008 - Alpharetta, GA - With the release of NetSupport School 10 from NetSupport, trainers can now lead a computer-based class with even tighter control over what appears on student screens, how much is sent to class printers and on what content leaves the classroom.

Building on their 13 years experience as the leading classroom instruction and monitoring solution, NetSupport have included features that reduce operational costs, improve IT support and most importantly, enhance student comprehension.

Based on extensive customer research, NetSupport have updated many of the features in NetSupport School and added additional modules designed for improved interaction, collaboration and support among teachers, students and technology staff.

The latest version now features a dedicated Technician's Console, a Student Journal, improved Print Management and Keyboard Monitoring capabilities as well as further Internet Security and Content Management.

"A recent joint study by the nation's two largest teacher unions revealed that teachers aren't getting the technical assistance they need to fully impact student achievement", stated Al Kingsley, Managing Director of NetSupport. "This finding resonates with our own customer feedback, namely the need for more access to technical assistance from within the classroom. Never before has a classroom management solution offered a single tool designed for both teachers and technology professionals, each being provided with their own dedicated solution, yet allowing for seamless interaction. If there is an issue, a single click of the "Teacher Assist" button connects a teacher instantly with any of their available technicians, no matter where they are on campus."

The new Tech Console delivers a range of tools specifically designed for Technology Professionals to both effectively manage their IT infrastructure and provide assistance. Featured tools include: desktop remote control, remote management of services, processes and applications running on any classroom PC, the generation of real-time hardware and software inventory reports as well as file distribution capabilities. A technician can also remotely power on/off all computers in a selected classroom and remotely log them in prior to a class beginning.

NetSupport School now also delivers clearly presented lesson details and objectives to each and every student, visual rewards in the Student Information Bar and a new "Student Journal" which creates a digital record of all activity and content provided by the teacher and student during a class. All of this is automatically prepared as a PDF for each student at the end of class. NetSupport School also features enhanced support for Interactive Whiteboards as well as the Intel Classmate PC.

All of the new features in NetSupport School 10 are included as standard and at no additional cost.

In 2007, NetSupport School received the Technology & Learning Legacy Award for Excellence, recognizing best-of-breed products demonstrating clear superiority over similar products in the market, and in 2008 received a BESSIE award for Best Educational Software from ComputED.
