What challenges were you trying to solve?
We wanted to find a way of monitoring students as they were working, controlling devices and blanking screens for getting their attention.

Why did you choose NetSupport School?
We use NetSupport School (1500+ licences) due to its range of features. It is invaluable for classroom control and focusing the students with ease – making lesson time more efficient.

How is the software currently being used in your organisation?
In ICT rooms, staff use the software to monitor student activities real time. Network technicians monitor all devices across the network for unusual activity, especially outside of main school hours. Classroom teachers monitor activity on mobile devices. Specialist staff monitor certain students throughout the day wherever they are.

How/where has NetSupport added value?
Students know they are being monitored, so they go off task less often!
