MARKHAM, ON, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - Education software specialist NetSupport is
pleased to announce that its long standing partnership with the Ontario
Ministry of Education has been extended for a further 12 months.
Responsible for administering the system of publicly-funded elementary
and secondary school education across Ontario, the Ministry has worked
tirelessly in recent years to promote a strong and vibrant education
system fit for the 21st century. Innovation, particularly across the secondary school system,
has been key with recent initiatives looking at how to engage students
through new teaching strategies, hands-on learning, use of technology
and smaller class sizes.
Enhancing the way education is delivered to students has been freshened
by expanding e-learning opportunities and creating more online
Throughout this process NetSupport's classroom management software
solution, NetSupport School, has played a pivotal role in enabling
schools to maximize the use of technology without it impacting the
teachers' ability to maintain a focused and safe learning environment.
The availability and involvement of, for example, the internet within
the classroom presents a number of exciting opportunities for modern
teaching. However, it also provides many challenges in controlling the
scope of access for students, the introduction of inappropriate content
and the ability for inter-student communication.
As education across Ontario has evolved, so has NetSupport School to
provide the most complete set of monitoring, collaboration and internet
controls available on the market today; factors that have maintained
the Ministry's continuing confidence in the product's ability to help
it deliver its goals.
NetSupport Canada's VP of Sales, Heather Vaters, has worked closely with
the Ministry since day one of our relationship and was naturally
delighted that our technology continues to prove its worth: "It is
obviously very rewarding when a long standing and valued customer such
as the Ministry continues to benefit from using our technology. Our
development team works hard to ensure that NetSupport School continues
to provide the very best management and support tools for our education
customers and recent innovations such as Digital Student Journals,
Language Lab Mode, Student Information Bar and the dedicated IT
Technician's Console ensure that customers who choose NetSupport's
Annual Maintenance contract continue to get value for money."
In recent years NetSupport has seen considerable growth as the need to
drive up academic attainment through the use of technology is
recognised throughout the world. And, as Ministries in Morocco, Libya,
Saudi Arabia, Chile, Mexico and Malaysia have also found, NetSupport
School continues to raise the bar.
Headquartered in the UK and with group offices in Canada, USA and
Germany, NetSupport have been supplying Desktop and Network Management
software to both corporate and education customers since 1989.
Its flagship products are the highly successful NetSupport Manager,
remote control & PC management application and NetSupport School, an

Learning Awards of Excellence.
