NetSupport School Continues To Be The Preferred Choice For Ontario Ministry of Education

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 resources.

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.
