Netop, a provider of classroom management software, has announced the launch of MyVision, a tool for teaching with technology designed to be extremely economical.
Created for teachers who need simple, basic controls over classroom computers, MyVision is an entry-level classroom management solution that works on both Macs and PCs. MyVision Basic provides four essential tools for teaching with computers, so any teacher can supervise student computer work, share engaging on-screen demonstrations, instantly capture the attention of the class and control student internet access. Available via low-cost online subscriptions, MyVision Basic is intended for teachers who have previously not been able to afford standard classroom management software.
In addition, MyVision Free, which offers the most fundamental tools for teaching with technology, is now available to all schools as a free download. With MyVision Free, teachers can supervise student computer use, monitor Web browsing, assess student progress, identify students who need extra help and improve classroom time on task. MyVision Free provides a subset of the features in MyVision Basic and may be upgraded seamlessly at any time.
The classroom management software solution is launching after the completion of a successful beta test that began in September 2009.
MyVision is the first in a series of products to be offered by Netop’s Education Solutions team, which was formed when Netop acquired GenevaLogic in July 2008. For more information or a free 30-day trial of MyVision, go to www.netop.com/myvision. Through a special introductory offer available until Dec. 31, 2009, a one-year subscription to MyVision Basic is available at the discounted price of $149. The regular annual subscription price is $199. To purchase MyVision Basic, go to www.netop.com/buymyvision.
