Original Press Release:
As Computer Usage in Classrooms Rises to All-time High, New Computer Lab Software from NetSupport Offers Teachers A Multi-function, Easy-to-use, Cost-effective Instructional Tool
ALPHARETTA, GA, April 5, 2004 - According to Market Data Retrieval, in 2003 the national ratio of students to instructional computers in public schools had reached 4 to 1, an all-time high. As the use of computers and the Internet in schools grows, so does the need for managing the learning process in networked classrooms. With the release of NetSupport School 7.5 software, teachers and trainers are able to better instruct, monitor and support students in networked classrooms.
"The need for teachers to efficiently manage their networked classrooms is growing exponentially," says Dave Auwarter, CEO of NetSupport. "With NetSupport School, teachers and trainers can improve the efficiency of classroom instruction by centrally instructing students on their computer, keep students on task by monitoring application and web usage, improve support through online help and chat requests, and save time by quickly polling the class and showing instant results."
NetSupport School is a software-only classroom instruction, monitoring and polling tool that enables teachers to train students in the computer lab, simply and effectively. Teachers and trainers can easily demonstrate, monitor, quiz and interact with their students. New features in NetSupport School 7.5 include a monitor mode that allows an instructor to display a thumbnail view of student workstations, student testing enhancements, a record and replay feature and enhanced application and Internet control modules.
With NetSupport School 7.5, teachers and trainers can make sure that those in the computer lab are making progress on their assigned tasks, using only approved applications and visiting only approved websites. Teachers and trainers can also record all screen, keyboard and mouse activity on a student workstation to review later or replay to the class. From the standpoint of increasingly strapped school technology budgets, the software enables teachers to make the most of the computer lab equipment they already have.
