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.
