Netop Debuts Volume Purchase Program for MyVision Basic, Making Economically Priced Classroom Management Software Even More Affordable
Chicago – April 6, 2010 – Netop™, the world’s largest provider of classroom management software, today announced an update to MyVision, the essential tool for teaching with technology. Now both MyVision Basic and MyVision Free will support mixed platform environments, allowing teachers to manage students working on both Macs and PCs simultaneously. In addition, the company debuted a new volume purchasing program for MyVision Basic, making the economically priced classroom management software even more affordable for teachers and schools around the country.
Launched late last year, MyVision is the new entry-level classroom management software offering from Netop designed for teachers who need simple, basic controls over classroom computers. MyVision Basic provides four essential tools for teaching with computers, so any teacher can supervise student computer work, share engaging on-screen demonstrations, instantly capture the attention of the class and control student Internet access. Available via low-cost online subscriptions, MyVision Basic is ideal for teachers who have never been able to afford standard classroom management software.
MyVision Free, offering the most fundamental tools for teaching with technology, is available to all schools as a free download. With MyVision Free, teachers can supervise student computer use, monitor Web browsing, assess student progress, identify students who need extra help and improve classroom time on task. MyVision Free provides a subset of the features in MyVision Basic and may be upgraded seamlessly at any time.
“In less than four months since MyVision Basic and MyVision Free were launched, thousands of teachers at schools around the world have turned to Netop for these tools for managing classroom computer use,” said Kurt Bager, CEO, Netop. “We know that school budgets are particularly tight right now, so we developed this update and new pricing program for MyVision to make it available to even more teachers who use technology as an integral part of teaching and learning.”
Andrew Williams, School-Site Secretary for Crossroads Charter Academy, a California school with a virtual curriculum, was among the early adopters of MyVision Basic. Williams said, “MyVision has helped us a great deal. In our lab of 28 PCs, we were not always able to supervise all of the students who were working on different assignments. MyVision helps us to keep all of our students on task and working toward their learning goals.”
With Netop’s new volume discounts for MyVision Basic, even more schools will be able to afford to offer their teachers access to the classroom management software. The regular annual subscription price of $199 is discounted by $25 each when two or more teachers purchase MyVision Basic together, and even deeper discounts are available for subscriptions of 10 or more, and 25 or more.
