NetSupport Ltd., a supplier of education management solutions, announced the upgrade of its School product, NetSupport School 8.5 (NSS 8.5). NetSupport School 8.5 is a software-only classroom instruction, monitoring, and testing tool that enables teachers to train students in the computer lab simply and effectively, according to the company. With NSS 8.5, 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 web sites, the company said. Teachers and trainers also can record all screen, keyboard, and mouse activity on student workstations to review later or replay to the entire 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, the company said.
