Pros: It's simplicity. The Lite version is perfect for just our needs for just monitoring students when they are taking an online class and especially when taking quizzes and test. The full version would be sweet, but w/ funding being stretch I am sure that my request for the full version would not be approved.

Comments: Although it's designed for schools, LanSchool is one of the most versatile software packages for any environment where a teacher or manager needs to monitor the usage of multiple computers at the same time. Robust features like file distribution and collection, keyboard history, two-way audio communication with individual clients, and screen sharing from any computer to any other computer(s) are all organized in an easy-to-access and customizable toolbar. Some advanced features take some time to get to know, but it is clear that this company has listened to feedback because they've developed features that are so perfect for the setting the software is designed for. Highly recommended for schools, libraries, or even public-facing computers in a business or employee-used computers in a call center type setup. This software is extremely versatile and very well-supported. We are very pleased with it and have been for years.

Pros: Could see students working

Cons: No collaboration tools between students
No presentation options for students
Website Limiting only on one browser

Overall: Our college purchased and used LanSchool in the computer labs for the last two years. While being able to watch what the students were doing and have them ask questions quietly was good there was a big problem with some of the features like limiting websites. It seemed to only work on one browser and, even then, not always.

Since I test through the lab and want to limit their web presence I had to force them to use IE or not worry about the exposure.

LanSchool-Great idea, doesn't deliver

Comments: I really like all of LanSchool's features, however, they do not deliver on some important features. I need features like "view keystroke history" when a student has been caught doing something inappropriate. However, features like this do not work consistently; maybe it will work one time when you need it but then the next time, there is no keystroke history whatsoever.

LanSchool is still not compatible with Windows 8. Our district is making the move, since Windows 8 has been out so long, but then we will have no monitoring. I am currently looking hard for a replacement.
