PCS will be officially
launching their new version of NetSupport School 4.50 at this years
Networks Telecom Show. You can see the new version in action by visiting
us on stand 20A48, 27th - 29th June, NEC Birmingham.
Having the privilege of
teaching a class of 15-20 pupils can be quite a task if all the students
are shouting for help at once. Since the arrival of NetSupport School this
job has been a lot more efficient and now the teacher can work from the
comfort of his/her chair.
We have already seen some
amazing features from our award winning remote control software but now
new with version 4.50 teachers can:
Multi-Scan - monitor up to
16 student screens simultaneously.
Multi-Media Support - If you have
multimedia PCs, full audio and video support is now available.
Management - Power On/Power Off - Logoff and shutdown Student PCs to
minimise power consumption.
The main highlights of
NetSupport School without mentioning hand in/hand out work feature,
classroom layout, student sign in, annotate the screen, full Windows 2000

School being superseded by another change. This improves performance.
NetSupport already has
thousands of installations worldwide with millions of clients installed
ranging from schools, universities, training companies and other types of
classroom based training organisations.
Tim Pipes from Southampton
City College said - "We chose NetSupport School because you could
download a demo, so we knew what it was like before we bought it, it was
ridiculously easy to install and set-up, and it works efficiently and is
very robust. It is really useful in the Open Access IT centre as an
on-line back up to the proxy server and for eliminating hacking as we can
keep an eye on the students. It is also great in helping provide remote
assistance to students".
Now with the new release
classroom training will be a whole lot more colourful.
