Wow! LANschool is just what the doctor ordered!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

LANschool does exactly what it promises. It allows the teacher to control the computers (Mac/Win) in their classroom. They can see all the screens on the teacher machine. They can remote control the student computer. They can lock the student computer. Excellent software!

Nachteile:

The price is a little high; however Lenovo has this software in a very niche market and can command a little more for the asking.

Manage Your Class Room With LanSchool

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I found LanSchool is very useful when you have a class room of computers with a local network. It help to tech, manage, evaluate and etc.

Vorteile:

I have a class room full with computers so when I teach its hard to monitor each student that what are them doing. So I came up with a solution that is using LanSchool. When we use LanSchool we can monitor what students are doing from teacher's computer. We can lock their computer to keep their attention to the main board. We can share the teacher's screen to the students' computer to clearly demonstrate something or to share a presentation. We grant or deny access to the internet from the student computers. If we need we can remotely control student computer. Students can't remove the software without credentials that are given at the installation.

Nachteile:

There is a lag when casting teacher's screen or remote controlling a student computer. If it have a mobile application to monitor in distance it will be much more handy tool.

LanSchool

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience has been that they are trying to develop a strong tool but that it needs more work in an actual school environment.

Vorteile:

LanSchool attempts to offer my school a platform for monitoring student laptops in our 1:1 environment. The pluses are that it allows teachers to view, take over, and adjust student computer screens when all is functioning properly. This is imperative in a 1:1 environment in a school.

Nachteile:

What I've found on both the MacBook and Chromebook OSs is that students are really adept at finding ways to thwart their system. For instance, in many cases, they just need to toggle on and off their wifi connection or shut their laptop and open it for their teacher to lose access to their device. The teacher can only fix it by entirely rebooting their class. This is a real problem. It also can be slow and a big clunky in terms of features.

Antwort von Lenovo Software

vor 4 Jahren

Hello Sarah - Thank you for your review and valuable feedback! Regarding students turning off their Wi-Fi or closing their laptops, as it turns out, we do not have any way to control the operating system (Windows, macOS & Chrome OS) via LanSchool. We have heard from many school districts that if students continue to do those things, it becomes a disciplinary issue. Regarding the performance issues that you mentioned, our Product Managers and Development Teams are constantly working to improve product performance, reliability and security. We find that only a small percentage of our customers experience issues. We encourage all customers to ensure that they are on the latest version. You can find that and more at lenovosoftware.com/support/lanschool. Please let us know if there's anything we can assist you with by contacting us at customersuccess@lanschool.com.

LanSchool is an adequate Classroom management utility.

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: LanSchool is a very affordable remote management / classroom management computer utility. It now supports Chromebooks, as well as traditional computers. In the past we have used it on Terminal Services operated labs, and found it invaluable to deploy and launch specific apps / websites at specific times, and to also keep students on task. Coolest thing: Manage 30 identical machines, driving the same mouse and keyboard "virtually," clicking and navigating through an appl that needs to be setup. People usually watch in awe as all the mice move at once. LanSchool is a very affordable package, that every school should at least evaluate.

Vorteile:

LanSchool provides us with a dashboard, multi-screen overview of our students currently using it. It allows out to take control, limit, or launch applications / webpages as we wish.

Nachteile:

LanSchool is pretty high bandwidth. Large Scale deployments might need some extra network considerations.

LanSchool

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

What I like most about this software is the ability to control an environment. I like that I can control a laptop(s) and "lock it down" if someone isn't doing what they're supposed to or aid with helping on an assignment through my own laptop.

Nachteile:

What I like least about this software is at times there's a lag in what the student screen is displaying on my laptop to what the student is actually looking at on his/her end.

Great remote access software for schools

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: For the period in which I used lanschool it was a great piece of software, allowing me as administrator to both remote onto staff and student computers to resolve issues occurring fast and smoothly.

Vorteile:

Lanschool is a great easy to use remote access software for schools, it allows easy monitoring of both student and staff computers. Its also great for both teachers and administrators allowing teachers just to be limited to see and moderate students.

Nachteile:

Although this doesn't affect the function of the software it does have an out of date design which may turn off new users to it.

Love for classroom management

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Love using it, was pretty easy to learn, and not too many bugs.

Vorteile:

Great to have for managing my students and their technology, such a time saver and helps keep students focused. Love showing my screen on their computers, controlling their screens if needed, mass sending out programs to prep computers (which saves a ton of time!), etc.

Nachteile:

Expensive- not many schools have it. When I switch jobs we won’t have this and I’m so sad. I really hope it can be more accessible.

LANSchool Review

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall I do not recommend LANschool

Vorteile:

LANSchool is good for a computer lab environment. It's very cut and dry as to what it does and what it is used for.

Nachteile:

It's just very buggy, some computers show up on the list initially and others require typing in the settings several times for it to take. Also, it was not set up to manage in a centralized location for each computer lab so whenever we would make a network change it was a tedious process to make adjustments in each individual classroom.

The Best Windows Observation Tool

Kommentare: It's been positive, but other products like GoGuardian are fast approaching them.

Vorteile:

If you have a windows machine and need the ability to monitor what your students are doing this is the best.

Nachteile:

It is only as fast as your network and your host machine so if you have slower and older machines, LANSchool might not work well.

"Revolutionizing Classroom Management: A Comprehensive Review of LanSchool"

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Some business problems that LanSchool aims to solve include: LanSchool helps teachers manage and monitor students' devices and activities during class, reduces distractions, and promotes a more focused learning environment. The software's screen sharing and file distribution features allow teachers to quickly and easily present lessons and distribute resources, saving time and streamlining the learning process. LanSchool provides teachers with the tools they need to actively engage with students and offer individualized support, which can help improve student engagement and learning outcomes

Vorteile:

LanSchool allows teachers to take control of students' screens to help provide guidance or offer assistance. This feature allows teachers to share their screens with students, making it easier to present lessons or collaborate on projects. LanSchool will enable teachers to monitor what students are doing on their devices, making it easier to ensure that they stay on task. This feature will allow teachers to efficiently distribute files or resources to students, saving time and streamlining the lesson process.

Nachteile:

Some users have reported technical problems with the software, such as slow performance or compatibility issues with specific devices. Some users have raised concerns about privacy issues, as the software allows teachers to monitor students' devices and online activity. Some users have reported that the software can be challenging to set up and manage, especially for users who are not technically savvy. Some users have reported that the software doesn't offer as much customization as they would like and may not be suitable for more advanced users.

Accountability is a must!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I have enjoyed its use for quite a few years. Recently we transitioned to Lanschool Air, and I'm excited so far!

Vorteile:

I am a teacher and staying abreast and a step ahead of my students' technical abilities is a must. Therefore, I love it how I can monitor my students' screens. There are many features that allow full student accountability.

Nachteile:

I would like to see an app produced for Lanschool Air. I need mobility because I can't be seated at my desktop for all the lessons! In addition, students using Google Classroom should not need to be asked for permission to view their desktop. Teachers have a responsibility to ensure that students are compliant with technology policies.

Stephen - Thank you for your review and valuable feedback! We do have a Teacher's Assistant App for iOS - It allows you to walk around the classroom and control your Teacher Console using an iPad. Regarding the issue of students being asked to share their screen, there is a way to set screen sharing to Active Tab and it will not prompt the student. If you would like more information about either of these features, please contact us at customersuccess@lanschool.com.

Pros and Cons of LanSchool

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I would highly recommend LanSchool to any teacher. It's been a game changer in my classroom.

Vorteile:

I absolutely love LanSchool. Teachers don't always have the ability to walk around the room making sure everyone is on task at all times. LanSchool allows me to work with a small group, while still being informed about what my students are doing on their computer. LanSchool provides a pictures of each student's screen allowing me to quickly scroll through to see if everyone is on task. For students that aren't on task, you can message them, push the correct website to their screen, cut off access to any other website that is not the one they're supposed to be on, or pause their screen all together to make an announcement. You can do all of these things individually, or for the whole class.

Nachteile:

I have no cons for LanSchool. It is a very simplistic website, but it does exactly what I need it to do.

LanSchool For Computer Lab In A School

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: As an undergraduate of studying networks and stuff I was asked from my school to implement a class room management system for my school's computer lab. That where I used LanSchool, which full filed almost all the requirement we had. Easy to use and manage. Its a good software and very helpful when managing a classroom.

Vorteile:

LanSchool is amazing it comes with some great features that make students and teachers get more interactive and live in the learning-teaching environment. Its very good option that the students can't remove the software from their computer with out proper installation file. We can remotely control computers in the class, lock computers to get students' attention to the board, share teacher's screen to the student's monitor, restrict internet access or monitor it, remotely shutdown computers, remotely run a program on students' computers, send quizzes and get answers from student and etc. Those kind of features are very interesting nice to have in a classroom to make it more smarter.

Nachteile:

One thing is that the price of the software is bit high for a school in South Asian region to have. I hope that the software will support for Linux distributions in time. Screen sharing is working fine but that video isn't running smoothly there is a bit of lag with it.

Vorteile:

I love this product because it helps me keep my eyes on my students. I can view and control the students computers and I can also show my computer to all of my students desktops so that I can show them how to do things.

Nachteile:

I haven't noticed many cons in this program. I have used Altiris in the past and this was an easy product to move to so it was easy to change.

Annoying for students, but that's what it's for.

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: It works well for what it advertises. It should be installed on school devices for middle school and high school age kids as a way to increase productivity. It did for me, and it will probably work for other people.

Vorteile:

I was once playing a game during a class I was taking, and the administrator 'LanSchooled' my computer. It shut down that tab, and I wasn't allowed to play it or access that tab for 30 minutes. It worked well.

Nachteile:

There's nothing for students to do to interact with the teachers in these situations. If there were to be a communication aspect to justify why you had that open or a way to communicate with the teacher without making a public scene, that would improve the software immensely.

Hello John, thank you for the review and the feedback!

Not a bad product to use for Testing Centers

Kommentare: Overall a positive addition to our environment, end users like it.

Vorteile:

We like the features like website white/black lists, USB blocking, etc. Nice that you can setup channels to isolate different physical testing sites.

Nachteile:

The organization of machines is not the best I've seen, the quality and speed of the image is no the best either, and only one person at a time can remote into a station, which is annoying if you want assistance from IT personnel.

LanSchool Not Quite What Expected

3,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: Our college purchased and used LanSchool in the computer labs for the last two years. While being able to watch what the students were doing and have them ask questions quietly was good there was a big problem with some of the features like limiting websites. It seemed to only work on one browser and, even then, not always. Since I test through the lab and want to limit their web presence I had to force them to use IE or not worry about the exposure.

Vorteile:

Could see students working

Nachteile:

No collaboration tools between students No presentation options for students Website Limiting only on one browser
