Faronics unveils new computer-aided learning management application

Insight 7.7 introduces a free Tech Console that simplifies the management of computer-based learning environment

By CBR Staff Writer

Software firm Faronics has introduced its Insight 7.7, a new computer-aided learning management application for school administrators, instructors and IT teams.

The new release helps teachers to deliver an enhanced learning experience by eliminating distractions, promoting collaboration, and evaluating understanding, the company said.

Insight 7.7 introduces a free Tech Console that simplifies the management of computer-based learning environment for IT administrators.

The new Tech Console will allow administrators and IT teams to provide remote support to teachers and students alike that previously required an on-site presence. They can also perform network management tasks without even leaving their desks.

IT administrators can now manage Faronics Deep Freeze using the Tech Console. Deep Freeze removes unauthorised system changes and returns a computer to its original state.

Insight’s desktop management and remote control capabilities give IT teams the ability to support and manage more labs without leaving their offices.

Faronics Insight will enable teachers to improved collaboration and communication through features such as sharing their screens and/or audio with students, and assisting students directly via chat and remote control.

The new release will allow instructors to monitor all student activity from their own workstation, teachers to control students’ machines, co-browse, and share their monitors with students and also allows IT teams to provide remote support and perform network management tasks remotely.

Insight 7.7 includes audio, chat and broadcast features that facilitate interaction between teachers and students, easy voting and testing features to help gauge understanding, the ability to send/receive files and assignments.

Insight limits access to the web, applications, printing and drives and it works on PCs, Macs, Linux, thin clients, iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch devices.
