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

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.

Mrs Miriam Reich, Head of Computing Department, Menorah High School for Girls, London, UK.

We have been using LanSchool at the college for nearly 10 years. It is hugely popular with teaching staff, giving them excellent control over computer classes - limiting internet and application use, demonstrating their screen and blanking student screens to force them to pay attention.

LanSchool is also heavily used within the IT and Library departments to control student behaviour on open-access machines, administer exams and provide remote support. We have received excellent support through ITS for upgrades and training.

Mr Tom Cox, Network Manager, The College of Richard Collyer, UK.

I have had the pleasure of using LanSchool for over 15 years and first used it in a large FE college. The software is excellent, the instant control over the classroom is incredible. Before long the students do not even try to use other applications or websites other than those they should be using. I have recently purchased it again at my current school, a special school for students with social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

It is such a perfect solution; our students often do not have the self-control required to make the right choices and LanSchool helps them to get it right. It is also the perfect tool to ensure we can try to create as safe an environment as possible for vulnerable young people using the internet. Having a feature to be able to log key words and history is amazing. The other brilliant factor is the ease of use, even the most IT challenged staff are happy using it.
