Faronics has announced the release of Insight 7.4. Insight enables instructors to teach, monitor, and communicate with an entire class from one central computer. Students are kept on task and engaged in an environment where technology accelerates their learning. The latest version of Insight allows teachers to run the console within the Mac OS X operating system. This version also features expanded internet controls for Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox.

Faronics Insight is a classroom technology management solution that enables teachers to share their screen with students, control student access to applications and websites, and monitor classroom screens to ensure students are on task. Students are able to interact with the teacher directly through Insight’s chat, voting, and remote assistance capabilities. Insight gives instructors the ability to monitor user computers; blank user screens; mute audio; remote into their computers; and open, close, or block applications and web activity on user workstations.

A free 30 day evaluation version of Faronics Insight for Windows or Mac OS X can be downloaded from
