LanSchool Technologies LLC has announced that LanSchool v7.1, a new version of its classroom management software, is now available. USB drive blocking and keystroke/application monitoring are two new features of version 7.1 that improve control. Teachers can turn off access to student USB drives without affecting other USB devices. Application and keystroke monitoring saves a history of application usage and gives teachers access to everything a student types on their keyboard.
LanSchool v7.1 improves usability in the thumbnail view of its interface by allowing teachers to arrange the high-color thumbnails to represent the classroom layout. An additional small thumbnail size allows over 80 computers to be seen on a 15-inch screen.
Several other performance and feature enhancements were added in the areas of wireless reliability, installation, voting, limiting the internet, and student questions. LanSchool v7.1 manages computer-based classrooms, wireless laptop carts and 1:1 laptop/tablet schools.
LanSchool v7.1 is a free upgrade for customers that purchased LanSchool v7.0 over the past year. Educational pricing starts at $299 for classrooms with less than 10 computers and $599 for larger classrooms. Volume discounts, competitive upgrades, K-12 school, and district site licenses are available.
