LanSchool Technologies LLC, a leading provider of classroom management software, announced today that LanSchool v7.2 is available.
LanSchool v7.2 has several exciting new features such as student testing, the ability to Mute sound on student computers and a password protected “secure” mode. Even more importantly, LanSchool is available to schools and businesses using thin client technology. Microsoft’s Terminal Services, Citrix and NComputing thin client platforms are all supported.
“LanSchool v7.2 is a significant release that increases the LanSchool feature set, improves the accesibility of several key features and broadens the supported platforms to thin clients.” said Dana Doggett, president of LanSchool. “Schools are implementing thin clients to reduce hardware and desktop management costs. With rising energy prices, businesses are installing thin client platforms to reduce travel costs by providing remote access capabilties for training.”
Grading tests takes up a significant amount of time for teachers, generally after work hours. LanSchool’s new testing feature allows teachers to create 100 question tests. The tests are administered through LanSchool, where a real-time view of the students’ progress is displayed. The test is automatically graded and can be exported to a .csv file saving a teacher’s valuable time.
Muting is a simple, yet powerful feature that allows teachers to mute the sound on student computers, improving the learning environment in the classroom.
LanSchool v7.2 improves usability when blanking screens by allowing the teacher to change the blanking screens message on-the-fly. Keystrokes can now be monitored in real-time and LanSchool can be optionally installed in secure mode, which requires a password to access the LanSchool console.
