Bringing classroom management to the cloud

With schools everywhere quickly learning to adapt to distance learning in 2020, many educators are now beginning to realise the importance of putting a powerful, easy to use all in one Cloud-based Classroom Management Solution in place. 

LanSchool Air masterfully brings LanSchool’s renowned classroom orchestration software to the cloud, making it the perfect tool for distance learning, assisting educators in ensuring students are focused and fully engaged in online classes when working remotely. 

Recent studies suggest the biggest challenge facing teachers and students in remote learning is a lack of engagement. Being away from the classroom increases the risk of distractions, a failure to communicate effectively and less focus on tending to the individual needs of students. 

LanSchool Air has an assortment of incredible features developed solely to combat these obstacles. Here are just some of them:
