In this version you will find the following changes:

Leader groups (except for SmallClass Edition). Teacher can join several users to a student group, transferring a part of teacher privileges to some leader of the group, the leader can chat with other students of a group with text or voice chat, broadcast his/her screen to others, broadcast any user’s screen to others, control and monitor computers of the student group, use Whiteboard and Send/Collect Files tools (depending on permissions given to the leader by the teacher).

Direct broadcast mode, for complex environments where UDP Broadcast and Multicast protocols don’t work. (The mode is disabled by default, should be enabled in the teacher console settings).

Conference mode for Speech tool, enables a voice chat between teacher and several students at a time, so everyone can hear others (the default mode assumes bi-directional voice chat, i.e. only teacher can hear all students, other students can hear only teacher voice). The conference mode is disabled by default, should be enabled in the teacher console settings.

– Speech tool supports hi-quality sounds by default. Low-quality mode may be enabled to increase performance.

Quick Question tool draws charts upon poll completion.

– Quiz tool: teacher can pause time restricted quizzes.

– Quiz tool: teacher can add time for time restricted quizzes.

– Quiz tool: teacher can suspend quizzes, the quiz state will be stored on student computers and the teacher will be able to restore the suspended quiz and continue testing at any other time.

Customizable pop-up panel is displayed on teacher computers when the teacher console is minimized to the task bar. Teachers can execute commands without opening of the teacher console.

– Desktop Recorder Player supports DRR format of previous versions (9)

– Arabic language support for user interface.

– Unicode support for profiles, workspace, configuration files

 

PRO Edition: support of reference text files for group contents. The reference file is an external text file that contains a list of Computers, Student IDs or IP addresses forming the group.

Net Control 2 version 10 is already available!

We at Net Software P.C. are happy to announce that new version of Net Control 2 is already released. With a bunch of new features and improvements we hope this version will be a reliable aid to teachers, instructors and IT administrators in their work.

Taking into account the latest trends in teaching technologies, gradual transition to one-to-one and BYOD environments, with Net Control 2 version 10 we have changed significantly the approach to the user interface on both teacher and student sides, but especially on client (student) computers. With new messaging and new “hand raising” interfaces students now have more opportunities for communication with teachers, as also teachers now are able to get more complete feedback from students.

Important changes touched the Quizzing and Polling subsystem, with new Quiz Player of Net Control 2 version 10 your tests, quizzes and polls will be more impressive and attractive. Messaging, student registering and chatting subsystems on student computers were almost rewritten from zero.

Our international customers should estimate full Unicode support for both client and teacher modules that simplifies communication with complex languages.

Improved support of multi-monitor environments, centralized licensing of teacher and student computers from Connection Server in PRO Edition, new Screenshot View, Co-Browse and Raise Hand tools, this and many other features at your disposal in this version.

All users of previous versions, who purchased Net Control 2 license within past two years, are invited to contact Net Control 2 support or your local distributor for free upgrade. Please note, your old registration keys do not work in version 10, we will provide you with new registration key.

If you are ineligible for free upgrade but have purchased the software less than 5 years ago we will be happy to provide you with 50% discount for the upgrade (in bounds of the same edition and license limits).

As always, all new purchases come with free 24 month upgrade period, free technical support, auxiliary utilities and packages (deployment MSI packages, MSI Builders, administrative templates and tools).
