Pros: I love this product because it helps me keep my eyes on my students. I can view and control the students computers and I can also show my computer to all of my students desktops so that I can show them how to do things.

Cons: I haven't noticed many cons in this program. I have used Altiris in the past and this was an easy product to move to so it was easy to change.

Overall: I feel like this is an easy program to use and is very beneficial to our classrooms.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the ability to control an environment. I like that I can control a laptop(s) and "lock it down" if someone isn't doing what they're supposed to or aid with helping on an assignment through my own laptop.

Cons: What I like least about this software is at times there's a lag in what the student screen is displaying on my laptop to what the student is actually looking at on his/her end.

Pros: LANschool does exactly what it promises. It allows the teacher to control the computers (Mac/Win) in their classroom. They can see all the screens on the teacher machine. They can remote control the student computer. They can lock the student computer. Excellent software!

Cons: The price is a little high; however Lenovo has this software in a very niche market and can command a little more for the asking.

Pros: Working as support in a school can sometimes be very busy, being able to remotely solve issues without having to go the problem saves a lot of time which could be wasted due to user error, you can search for users and pcs making identifying which computer it is much easier so it can be recorded.

Cons: Sometimes after it is running in the background for some time the user list is not updated meaning you have to refresh the page to find some users, this is normally not an issue but instead a minor inconveniance.

Pros: Amazing idea, and terrific when you can see all the stations and how they are doing.

Cons: This program slows down everyone's computer, sometimes to the point where I have to uninstall.

Overall: An amazing concept, but very hard on older computers, slows them down to much.

Easy to use and a great classroom management tool. Also great for collaborating with students.

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.

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.

Pros: This software is exactly what schools need in this day and age. I sometimes give my students assignments on computers, and I recently realized that kids were using online calculators when I wasn't looking in order to solve problems without doing the work. With LanSchool, I can see exactly what each student has on their screen. Even just knowing that I have this ability prevents students from being off task.

Cons: I found it difficult to set up LanSchool and to create class rosters. However, once you get used to the software it shouldn't be a problem.

Overall: All of the teachers at my school use LanSchool to keep students on task, from elementary all the way to high school.

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: 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.

Dont Use on win8 or later and Mac OS Maverick or later

Comments: Using this program on win 7 is alright but other than that it is not working stable on mac os. we are currently using mac os x yosemite and win7x64 pro and this program removes itself from startup at least 2 times a week from at least 9 imacs in the classrooms. When you reinstall it, it finds the specific channel made for the class from the previous installation. But every week i install this program on mac os x yosemite systems on more than 20 imacs. So my advice is stay away if you are an apple user.
