Net Control 2 Pro:
Provides access to more than 150 different teaching, controlling, monitoring and communication features. Specially designed for teachers and by teachers, to make the teaching process more simple and effective. The software is localized in 10 languages, used in thousands of schools, colleges, universities and libraries in more than 100 countries around the world.
Net Control 2 Professional Edition is a special version for large networks that contain hundreds and thousands of teacher and student computers. We optimized our licensing conditions for such environments to offer the most effective per machine cost. Regular PRO Edition licenses are available in packs for 250, 500, 1000, 1500 computers, with average per-seat cost at $2.99-$4.76 only.
Intended for large networks, provides centralized management of groups and connections for all teachers in the network; advanced access management for students and teachers; the better support of one-to-one, BYOD and multi-VLAN network environments.
WHAT EDITION TO CHOOSE
PROFESSIONAL or CLASSROOM?
- Professional Edition is better if each teacher should have access to multiple student groups (classrooms) or if each student may belong to more than 5-10 classrooms or be connected to more than 5-10 different teachers.
- Provides centralized management of groups and connections. All group and access information is stored and managed on a special "server" computer in the network (Connection Server) and is available for all teachers, who have access to the server.
- Easily supports multi-VLAN network environment, just if the network connection between VLANs presents. There is no design limitations for the number of students that may be connected to one teacher, or for a number of groups available for teachers. They are only limited by the bounds of your license.
- Better integration with Active Directory services: groups and connections may be imported from AD Organization Units, teachers can use Windows login to access Net Control 2 Connection Server.
- Multiple levels for the group structure: groups may be placed into other groups (containers)
- Optionally teachers may be allowed to modify their groups (add or copy new connections from other groups).
- Better support for one-to-one or BYOD environments: students can choose a teacher from a list of available teachers and connect him/her automatically.
- Individual access privileges for every group. Administrator may limit access of teachers to groups (classrooms), assigning the necessary access privileges for each group and teacher.
- A group may contain users referenced by their login name. In this case a user will be assigned to the group despite of the physical computer where s/he is logged in.
- Features of the teacher console may be limited for particular teachers with View profiles. For example, Administrator can forbid teachers to manage programs on student computers or change restriction profiles. The profile will be in effect for any computers, where this teacher is logged in.
- Classroom (Standard) Edition is better if you have separate labs or classrooms that consist of a fixed sets of computers, or for situations when each student may be connected to a few (up to 10) different teachers.
- The workspace (a list of groups and connections) and settings are stored on each teacher computer individually, and the list of groups may be individual for each teacher.
- In order to support multi-VLAN environments student computers should be configured to use special Inverse connection model. Each student in this case may be connected to a limited number of teacher computers (1-10). The software uses this model by default.
- The same as Professional Edition, supports centralized deployment of teacher and student components through Active Directory Group Policies or scripts.
- Teacher can work with several groups of students (classrooms), each group consists of multiple student computers referenced by IP address or computer name.
- Features of the teacher console may be limited with View profiles. For example, Administrator can forbid teachers to manage programs on student computers or change restriction profiles. The profile will be stored on the teacher computer, and will be in effect for all teachers of this teacher computer.
