LanSchool and Microsoft MultiPoint
LanSchool Technologies LLC, a leading provider of classroom management software, announced that LanSchool v7.4 supports Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 for both the teacher console and student software.
Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 is a new Windows product targeted at educational institutions, for use in classrooms, labs and libraries, which allows multiple users to simultaneously share one computer. LanSchool worked jointly with HP and Microsoft to develop and test LanSchool v7.4 on HP MultiSeat hardware.
“We are excited to part of such an exciting initiative in education.” said Dana Doggett, president of LanSchool. “We believe Windows MultiPoint Server, running on HP MultiSeat hardware will allow significantly more students to access the benefits of a 21st century classroom. Supporting Windows MultiPoint Server at the launch demonstrates our continued commitment to support LanSchool on Macs, PCs and Thin Clients.”
LanSchool is participating as one of the Microsoft solution partners for MultiPoint Server. Microsoft has a strong global ecosystem of hardware and software companies to give customers more choices to buy and use the Windows MultiPoint platform.
“We optimized Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 for use in educational scenarios like classrooms, labs and libraries that allow multiple users to simultaneously share one computer,” said Ira Snyder, general manager, Windows MultiPoint Server at Microsoft Corp. “Following through on the educational value of this new computing category will need accompanying software solutions like LanSchool, which can bring compelling learning experiences to more students worldwide.”
The LanSchool classroom management solution for MultiPoint Server allows teachers to increase students’ time on task, improve learning and collaboration in the classroom. With LanSchool, teachers can easily blank student screens, monitor their computers and direct their use of the Internet.
