LanSchool Technologies, a leading provider of classroom management software, today announced a marketing and joint development relationship with Fourier Systems, a leading worldwide leader of compact portable data logging devices and accessories for the education market. The two companies have agreed to jointly develop a version of LanSchool that will manage the Fourier Nova5000 device, a new student computing device designed just for education. This integration is designed to give teachers the ability to manage a classroom of students using Nova5000s.
“This relationship is exciting because it will get the latest technology into the hands of more teachers and students,” said Dana Doggett, president of LanSchool. “The addition of LanSchool to the Nova5000 will enable teachers to make sure that students using this new technology will stay on task.”
With LanSchool, teachers can improve the classroom learning environment by removing the distractions that technology introduces. With LanSchool, teachers will be able to project their computer screen to the Nova5000, send messages, blank out the screen on the Nova5000 and remotely control the device through the wireless LAN.
Brenda Raker, CEO of Fourier Systems, Inc. said, “This relationship with LanSchool allows our customers to take full advantage of the Nova5000 solution, delivering the first fully managed student learning appliance. This partnership offers teachers and students an unprecedented opportunity and we are pleased to align with LanSchool.”
This addition to the software suite Nova5000 offers makes for an even more cost effective and versatile computing device. With Nova5000, schools have a total 1:1 computing solution that meets their full school day needs.
Pricing and Availability
The product will be available from Fourier as a software add-on to the Nova5000 in June 2007. The pricing will start at a manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) of USD$27 per device.
