ITS

Computer based learning can be a powerful tool in the classroom environment but also provides multiple opportunities for students to be distracted such as web browsing, emails and instant messaging. LanSchool is very simple to install and communicates peer-to-peer between a console application installed on the teachers computer and a software agent running on the students computers. Being incredibly reliable, tamper proof and easy to use it is the perfect solution to keep students on task, guide and support their learning and ensure a studious environment is maintained.

What our customers say

We have been using LanSchool at Bedford School for about 1 year and we have to say it works great. It was very easy to install and setup on about 200 Virtual Machines. Teachers who have been using the software in the classrooms are very happy with it as they found it extremely simple to use.

Mr Rajpal Singh Kalsi, IT System Engineer, Bedford School, Bedfordshire.

We have been using LanSchool for over 10 years and as it has developed it has become even easier to use and more enhanced with its capabilities. Its Report Server is very useful for monitoring the behaviour of students, which PC's they have used, their internet access and crucially for esafety it helps meet the Ofsted Standards for prevent and other important keyword libraries

LanSchool is also very easy to setup and customise on a room or class list basis. It does exactly what teachers need in the classroom environment. I.e. disable or limit web access, disable USB, sound, keyboard and mouse access and blank screens with a message. It also lets you login/log off multiple machines as well as power cycle. Lastly, it also has a useful tech console which helps with the network management. This software is relied upon in our busy secondary school environment and I would definitely recommend it for any school

Mr Simon Mills, IT Service Delivery and Operations Manager, Waingels Academy, Berkshire, UK.

LanSchool virtually overnight revolutionised my classroom experience. Gone are the days of students doing their own thing on their PCs during my lessons, now I stream my slide presentations and demos directly to each PC, so they can all see things clearly in front of them and cannot get distracted from class activities. In addition to that, during every lesson I can see what every student is up to, regardless of where they sit, which allows me to give help as soon as it is needed. Plus they absolutely revel in getting personal messages from their teacher. I also find LanSchool so useful in showing one student’s screen to the rest of the class when sharing particularly good pieces of work.
