Tablet and smartphone support

Responding to the growing use of mobile devices in the modern classroom, NetSupport has extended its multi-platform capabilities to include support for tablets and smartphones.

The NetSupport School Student for Android can be installed on any Android tablet and ensures students using these devices can still join with your NetSupport-managed lessons.

The Tutor Assistant for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones delivers the freedom for a teacher to move around the classroom while still being able to monitor and interact with the class.

For installation on any Android tablet*, NetSupport School Student for Android gives teachers the power to connect to each student in a NetSupport School managed classroom**, enabling real-time interaction and support.

Key features:

  • Student Register: The teacher can request standard and/or custom information from each student at the start of each class and create a detailed register from the information provided.
  • Connecting to Students: The teacher can either browse for student tablets (from their desktop application) or allow students to connect directly to the relevant class from their Android device.
  • Lesson Objectives: If provided by the teacher, once connected, students are presented with details of the current lesson, together with overall objectives and their expected learning outcomes.
  • Sending Messages: The teacher can broadcast messages to one, selected, or all tablet devices. Students receive an audible and visual alert when a message is received and they can then be viewed and managed by the student.
  • Chat: Both the student and the teacher can initiate a Chat session and participate in group discussions.
  • Requesting Help: Students can discreetly alert the teacher when they require assistance. This sends an alert to the teacher's desktop, enabling them to interact with the student concerned. In addition, a red toolbar appears at the top of the student's tablet, enabling the teacher to easily identify students in need of help as they move around the classroom.
  • Class Surveys: As part of student and classroom assessment, teachers can conduct on-the-fly surveys to gauge student knowledge and understanding. Students are able to respond in real-time to the survey questions posed and the teacher can then show results to the whole class, enabling students to receive instant feedback on their progress.
  • Lock Screen: The teacher can lock students' screens while presenting, ensuring student focus when required.
  • Show Screen: While presenting, the teacher can show their desktop to connected tablets, at which point students are able to use touch-screen gestures to pinch, pan and zoom in order to highlight key information when needed.
  • Configuration Options: Teachers can choose to pre-configure each Android tablet with the required classroom connectivity settings, or 'push' the settings out to each device from within the NetSupport School Tutor program.
