World Leader in Classroom Management Software’s Premium Solution Features High-Speed Screen Sharing, Other Capabilities to Accelerate Learning
LONDON– Jan. 11, 2012 – Today at the BETT show, the world’s leading event for education technology, Netop introduced the next generation of classroom management software with the launch of Netop Vision™ Pro. A new powerful classroom management solution that combines ease of use with enhanced features for best- in-class performance, Vision Pro gives educators unsurpassed flexibility and control over student computer use, which ultimately results in improved student achievement.
An extension of the company’s Vision family of products, the most popular classroom management software in the world, Netop Vision Pro is the next generation of Netop School. Netop is the only classroom management company to offer a complete family of compatible software that meets the varying needs and budgets of teachers in schools and districts around the world.
Tom Fish, a teacher in the math department at Hutchington Tech High School in New York’s Buffalo City School District has long used classroom management software to support his courses, such as C++ Programming, and Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus. After participating in a pilot of Netop Vision Pro, Fish was amazed at the difference in performance. “I have long been a fan of the way that classroom management software helps support my teaching with technology,” he said. “But Netop Vision Pro takes it to the next level. What a huge difference in speed!”
Developed to support the myriad of multimedia resources used in instruction today, Vision Pro features new high-speed screen sharing functionality that allows teachers to share videos and graphic-intensive applications quickly and efficiently. The high-speed screen sharing functionality in Vision Pro allows screen sharing of applications such as AutoCAD, QuickTime and 3-D Studio Max, while not degrading computer performance.
With the classroom management software’s new Ultimate Web Control, teachers can quickly and efficiently manage web resources in advance of and during class. A website that might be distracting students can be blocked on the fly while teaching, remaining unavailable until the teacher unblocks it. In addition, Vision Pro allows teachers and IT administrators to remotely login all computers as a specific user simultaneously, saving time in single-user environments such as media centers, computer labs and classrooms.
“Schools have computers to support their most important goal: improving student achievement,” said Kurt Bager, CEO, Netop. “Every investment that Netop makes in the development of our classroom management tools is with a keen focus on helping teachers use technology to support student learning and accelerate achievement. Netop Vision Pro provides educators with unsurpassed flexibility for using computers as teaching tools, particularly when it comes to integrating today’s robust multimedia resources into instruction.”
Netop Vision Pro is offered as a free upgrade to Netop School users with current Netop Advantage agreements. In addition to the new capabilities in Netop Vision Pro, Netop School users will also benefit from a more intuitive user face that puts the most used features at teacher’s fingertips, improved wireless performance and extended support for 64-bit operating systems.
In 2012, as part of its introduction of Netop Vision Pro, the company is offering a variety of grants and promotions for new customers, existing Netop School users and for Vision customers interested in upgrading to this premium classroom management solution. In addition, to support new users, a complete web-based training program is available online at no charge.
