<p><strong>Alpharetta, Ga. &mdash; May 29</strong><br />With the release of NetSupport School 9 from NetSupport, teachers now can lead a computer-based class with tighter control over what appears on student screens and over how much content gets sent to school printers.&nbsp; </p><p>Building on 12 years as a classroom instruction and monitoring solution, NetSupport School 9 includes features that reduce operational costs, improve student monitoring and provide even greater security for both the students and their data.<br /><br />&ldquo;NetSupport School becomes the first classroom management software that lets teachers control printing costs on a class by class basis,&rdquo; said Marcus Kingsley, NetSupport group sales and marketing director. &ldquo;Likewise, it&rsquo;s the first to include real-time monitoring of keyboard and instant messenger use. Teachers now can make sure students are not only using a certain application but also are on track with their assigned task in that application &mdash; rather than exchanging answers with other students through instant messages.&rdquo;<br /><br />Enhanced security features in NetSupport School 9 include teachers now having the ability to prevent students from accessing or copying data to or from USB data devices or CD/DVD devices.&nbsp; </p><p>With the extension of NetSupport School&rsquo;s previous URL monitoring to the teacher&rsquo;s monitor, teachers now cannot accidentally visit an inappropriate Web site while their screen is visible to the class.&nbsp; </p><p>Version 9 also gives teachers the ability to impose Safe Search settings, regardless of settings on individual computers, as well as to enable or disable audio output for the entire class.<br /><br />Along with an easier-to-use test design interface, support for Windows Vista and a new student-locater service for dispersed wired or wireless networks, all teachers using NetSupport School now have free access to an online resource exchange where teachers can share curriculum content, questions and exams.<br /><br />In 2006, NetSupport School received the Technology &amp; Learning Legacy Award for Excellence, recognizing best-of-breed products, and in 2007, it received a BESSIE award for Best Educational Software from ComputED.</p>
