NetSupport School Student app validation boosts Hannspree’s presence in the education channel
The increasing popularity of tablet PCs in schools, thanks to the introduction of specialised software solutions and the use of applications such as Mine Craft for educational purposes, is seeing the Hannspree brand become a leading global provider of tablet PC solutions to the education channel. The Hannspree HANNSpad tablet PC which is already regularly selected for large tenders, thanks to the winning combination of; features, price and warranty it offers, is consistently proving ideal to meet this channel’s specific demands. Now Hannspree is pleased to announce that it has gained accreditation from market leading educational software developer NetSupport, to enable the HANNSpad tablet to host its NetSupport School Student app for Android.
Sales Director of Hannspree Europe, Gregor Perng comments:
“Hannspree tablet PCs are already setting the standard in the education channel. Since company focus was put onto this market in Q4 2013 Hannspree has attracted the attention of some very important players including the Italian Ministry of Education which references the HANNSpad solution as its first choice in an official tender. Receiving accreditation for NetSupport’s highly popular classroom management solution will further boost Hannspree’s presence in the education channel by providing future potential business, and help build upon our success thus far in this challenging market.”
The alliance with NetSupport and its solution will see Hannspree enlisted as an education solution candidate and the HANNSpad promoted as a credited device which will champion the Hannspree brand to emerging business opportunities. The partnership with NetSupport, with its 25-year development pedigree and a worldwide installation base of 13 million systems, will undoubtedly have the potential to elevate the Hannspree brand to the highest level in the education sector.
NetSupport’s accreditation process primarily focuses on validating its Android Student app on devices to allow remote screen monitoring; a key requirement of classroom management software that allows teachers to control computer-led instruction. As well as NetSupport School’s core chat, message and request help capabilities, other key instructional tools available for teachers to use in the Android version include: the ability to broadcast their screen directly to tablets; lock tablet screens to gain attention; conduct instant class surveys and student and peer assessment; file transfer; and display lesson objectives and expected outcomes.
NetSupport’s Managing Director Al Kingsley comments:
“The increased use of mobile technology in the classroom sets the challenge for classroom management vendors to ensure that relevant teaching tools are available across a range of devices and we have been quick to ensure NetSupport School is future-proofed to operate within any environment. In particular, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has brought focus to the need for classroom management software to work on Android devices and we have been working with tablet manufacturers to validate our app in order to provide an accredited list of devices to schools. We are extremely pleased to be working with Hannspree and to have passed their first device which we understand to be an extremely popular choice for education establishments.”
