NetOp Vision Software

NetOp Vision is installed in computer classrooms in Webb Hall. Using NetOp, the instructor can prevent the student from using the machine while lecturing, broadcast his or her screen, or the screen of another student, to all the other screens in the class, mark up the featured screen to highlight a lesson, monitor activity on the student screens, chat with students, or remote control a student PC for one-on-one instruction.

Benefits for the Instructor
You can control, from your teaching station, the computers within your classroom. With NetOp Vision, you can run demonstrations of any installed software application, PowerPoint presentations, videos or web pages without the use of an overhead projector. NetOp also empowers the instructor to disable student keyboards and mice, focusing the class on the material you are presenting. You can start a text chat with students on a one-to-one or one-to-many basis. This can be used to provide help or individual instruction from the teaching station. Students may also request help from the instructor by clicking the Help icon located in the system tray.

NetOp Vision Features

  • Give demo to instruct one, several or all students in the classroom
  • Choose between two options: Send your demo in full-screen to the students for a fully controlled demo or send your demo in a window for the students to follow your instructions step-by-step
  • You may also demo any student screen to the class by using NetOp School in conjunction with the ceiling-mounted LCD projection unit
  • You may start programs on student PCs from the NetOp Teacher Control Panel
  • For individual student instruction you may choose to remote control the student's PC
  • The Attention Button located on the Teacher Control Panel sends a customizable text or graphic message and locks all student keyboards and mice
  • The Teacher Control Panel also allows for file transfers between you and students
  • Using the Marker Mode the instructor is able to annotate student screens which can be useful when using the Demo mode.
  • The Student Module is already installed and automatically starts on each of the computers in the classroom. As students logon to their computer, they are automatically discovered by the Teacher module without any intervention by the instructor. This is transparent to both students and instructors.
