Windows

With NetSupport School in a Windows environment, teachers have a myriad of tools at their disposal to deliver learning that engages and involves their students, while simultaneously ensuring their online safety and the smooth running of lessons.

Main Tutor 

The desktop tutor application for Windows provides the full range of features to help teachers maximise lesson time, engage with students and boost learning outcomes.

Manage: One key strand of classroom management is exactly that: “managing” the students and their devices, to maximise time spent on teaching.

Instruct: Being able to actively engage and keep the whole class on track within an IT classroom can be challenging at the best of times.

Monitor: Being able to monitor student activity is the cornerstone of good classroom management software. Not only does it ensure students stay on task, but it is also a key foundation for an effective e-safety implementation.

Assess: The more regular the feedback, the better the learning outcomes and the learner is equipped with the knowledge of how to improve. From informal classroom discussions and peer assessment to an end-of-year external examination.

Security: With the level of desktop control and management available within the product, protecting its configuration and use is key to delivering the best possible standard of instruction, without the fear that the technology is open to abuse.

Teachers especially love having control of creating their own internet lists as well as practical measures such as turning off printing, which are all things that really help keep the students focused.
