Description

The world’s most popular classroom management software

When you talk classroom management software, you're
talking Vision. Teachers across the globe rely on it, and why? Because
Vision offers tools for teaching that are easy to use, even for a
first-time user. Classroom management has been proven to improve student
achievement and it makes integrating technology in the classroom more
intuitive - with a clean, simple toolbar that puts a rich variety of
powerful tools in your hands.

Spend more time teaching and less time on everything else

Vision
is your own personal classroom monitor. Keep an eye on everyone's work.
Notice when someone's off task. Get everyone to the same place at the
same time, so you can start the lesson. These are the tasks that good
teaching depends on, but they take a lot of time and energy - and class
time is limited. That's where Vision comes in.

Vision
classroom computer management software lets you make the most of your
time when integrating technology in the classroom. It gives you the
tools you need to control sources of distraction, monitor student
computers, get started without lost transition time and notice as soon
as someone needs your help.


Features & Benefits

Supervise students' work


View an expandable thumbnail image of each student's screen on
your computer, so you can follow their activities from your desk in real
time.

Share your screen


Give your students a high-speed, full-screen view of your display while locking their keyboards and mice.

Control students' Internet use


Select which websites your class can view. Want to restrict
sites, too? Vision Pro lets you customize every aspect of your students'
Internet access.

Remote login


In single sign-in environments such as your library or computer
lab, Vision Pro lets you sign in or out of multiple computers, all at
the same time.

Showcase students' screens


Display what one student is doing on other students' computers:
an excellent way to hold student demonstrations, presentations and
spotlighting.

Launch applications


Open a file, application or website remotely, in one move, for
the whole class at once: simultaneous application launch saves a lot of
class time.

Operate computers remotely


Operate your students' computers without having to leave your
desk. Help a student through a problem screen-to-screen, the moment
you're needed.

Kiosk applications


Working in Kiosk mode, your students can't exit the applications
you've launched, open anything else, access the desktop or restart their
computers.

Blank student screens


Make classroom screens go blank in a click, locking students'
keyboards and mice. Capture attention and stop all activity the instant
you need to.

Share files between computers


Send documents, collect tests and distribute assignments in your
classroom instantaneously, without having to pass out any papers.

Manage from your iPad


Teach from anywhere in your classroom with Vision Mobile, the new
app for teachers that puts the full power of your PC onto your iPad.

Start, restart or turn off all the computers in your class (or
just the ones you select) at one time, from your desk, saving valuable
preparation time.

Dynamic screen annotation


Netop Pointer gives you over 20 annotation tools to make your
on-screen presentations come alive. Zoom, highlight, draw on screen and
more.

computer's USB port, letting you operate Vision's core features with the
push of a button.

Customize classroom view


Label student screenshots and rearrange them on-screen,
organizing your display to mirror where your students are seated in the
room.

Chat with students


Send and receive instant messages with a student, a group or the
whole class, screen-to-screen. Communicate discreetly without disturbing
others.

Survey students, take polls
