New Vista-enabled version of software used in 35% of UK secondary schools

19th February 2008, Reading, UK; NetOp Tech Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Danish IT company Danware, today announced the launch of NetOp School 5.5, the leading programme for managing and running computer-based classrooms. NetOp School 5.5 allows teachers to control and monitor an unlimited amount of students’ use of the Internet, providing a safer, more secure environment to search and work in.

The new release of the company’s flagship solution, which is already being used in over a third of the UK’s schools, also provides full compliance with the new architecture of Windows Vista and allows the control of any browser.

NetOp School brings a complete, computerised teaching solution to the networked classroom - from preparing for class and teaching students, through to grading pupil’s work. Teachers can share any screen with the class, follow students as they work and lend a hand where and when it’s needed, control what applications can be used, distribute and collect documents from students, then perform regular tests with immediate individual feedback.

The new version of NetOp School will allow more schools to use the product on different platforms and browsers. Previously, only Microsoft Internet Explorer could be monitored and blocked, whereas version 5.5 allows all browsers to be supported. As well as Safari and Firefox, this includes alternative methods such as using a ‘click-through’ link in Microsoft Powerpoint.

“Today’s students are experienced users of the Internet and it’s now more than ever easier and more tempting to explore cyberspace. This means that teachers need to be even more aware of what’s really going on. NetOp School 5.5 provides teachers with increased visibility and tighter control, while making the best use of existing resources,” said Peter Claxton, Educational Business Development Manager at NetOp.
