Chicago ?April 10, 2007 — When a middle school student in Steve West´s computer lab at Asheville Middle School in Asheville, N.C. found a way to get out on the Internet during class, the veteran teacher called the young woman up to his desk. She was appalled to see that he had a recording of every site she had visited on the Internet. After that, he never had a problem with that student wandering off task again.

The NetOp School software West uses in his classroom allows him to view and record each student´s monitor from his own screen. If a student wanders off task, the teacher knows immediately and can send a private text message to the student to bring them back on track. The software also allows teachers to share any screen with the rest of the class, freeze a student´s mouse, or turn controls over to a student for a demonstration.

Ease of use makes NetOp School perfect for classroom use, according to West.

"I have been using this software in my classroom lab for two years and managing it in 10 additional classroom labs in three buildings," he said. "If all software was this easy, tech people would be out of work."

The latest version of NetOp School, version 5.0, has an improved test center, allowing teachers to customize tests so that they match the curriculum being taught. It also allows for offline preparation so that teachers can work on curriculum at home without installing NetOp on their home computer.

NetOp School was developed by Danish IT company, Danware A/S, and is sold in the United States by the company´s subsidiary NetOp Tech Inc.

"NetOp School is extremely popular software with schools and teachers," said Jason Vargovchik, country manager for NetOp Tech Inc. "The teaching features, reliability and ease of use are very attractive for educators."
