CHICAGO – Aug. 26, 2009 –Today Netop, the world’s largest provider of classroom management software, made the essential tools for teaching with technology available to all teachers around the world with the introduction of MyVision. An innovative classroom management solution, MyVision offers teachers a personalized approach to classroom management that is easy to use and accessible over the Internet.
Two versions are planned: MyVision Free, which enables teachers to supervise student computer use and will be available for free download, and the affordable MyVision Basic, which features the essential tools for guiding student learning on computers. Using MyVision Basic, teachers can supervise student computer use, blank student screens, project demonstrations and turn Internet access on or off with the click of a button. To ensure that all teachers can take advantage of this new breakthrough technology, MyVision supports both PCs and Macs.
“At Netop, we want teachers to have access to the great tools for teaching with technology, regardless of budget constraints,” said Kurt Bager, CEO, Netop. “Now with MyVision, teachers will have the essential tools for teaching with technology over the Internet at a very affordable price.”
Bager continued, “Furthering our commitment to the value of using technology to support teaching and learning, we also developed a free online set of classroom management software tools, MyVision Free, which any educator can download and use at no cost.”
MyVision is the first in a series of next-generation products to be offered by Netop’s Education Solutions team, which was formed when Netop acquired GenevaLogic in July 2008. GenevaLogic developed Vision6 classroom management software, a full-featured solution that provides the easiest and most effective way to teach with computers. Netop is known as an expert in remote-control solutions and offers Netop School software, which provides the highest performance solution for classroom management. Netop will continue to offer both Vision6 and Netop School for those educators who want to take their classroom management tools to the next level.
“To ensure that all schools maximize their investment in technology to support teaching and learning, it is important that educators and schools have a wide range of classroom management solutions to choose from – in terms of features, capabilities and affordability,” said Bager. “Netop’s long-term goal is to offer a continuum of classroom management software solutions that will let schools mix and match feature sets to meet their varying needs and budgets.”
Free trials of the beta version of MyVision Basic are now available for download at www.netop.com/myvisionbeta and include a free subscription valid through December 2009. A one-year subscription for MyVision Basic will be available in the United States in late 2009.
