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 had used LanSchool on a small scale before our rebuild and ICT refresh in 2012 and had found it easy to use and teacher friendly. The appointed IT partner for our BSF project provided another tool for monitoring but it just didn’t cut the mustard – so we returned to LanSchool in 2014. Quickly installed it has been welcomed by full time IT teachers as well as a range of other staff in rooms with PC suites. It hasn’t generated any calls to our IT log and has been very reliable. The ability to monitor and when necessary support students, in real time, has been a great benefit. We have yet to roll out coverage for our iPads but are looking forward to doing so.

Mr Chris Carr, Assistant Head Teacher, ICT Strategy, The Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School, Greenford, UK.

We have been using LanSchool for a number of years now and absolutely love it, it has proven to be an invaluable tool for teachers to monitor and assist pupils whilst in IT rooms. From a technical point of view, it's been so easy to deploy and manage and has been great to monitor the whole network from a single screen. We have looked at alternative products but found LanSchool to be extremely cost effective, the support has been really good and the experience has been great.

Mr Colin Dean, Network Manager, Ferndown Upper School, Dorset.

LanSchool was an instant hit with IT staff and teachers, providing excellent control of the computers in our hub. The functions are all useful, easy to use and minimal training is required for most users. Importantly, the software has helped to benefit teaching and learning, the pupils really like that they can show everyone their achievements and also enjoy watching the teacher demonstrations without having to move from their seats. Overall we are really pleased that we chose LanSchool and would recommend to other schools. I would also point out that the support and advice on LanSchool and other products from ITS has been great, a very efficient, friendly team!!

Mr Paul Ellam, Network Manager, Whitehall Primary School, Leicester.
