Pros: Vision for Chromebooks gives teachers enough control without allowing them to be excessively controlling like other services enable. Teachers can view screens, push links, message students, and quickly display student screens to the class if they choose. I've had the best dealings with the company for all of my needs and have even had conversations with the CEO at conferences. They are one of the best vendors I work with and are constantly listening to customers and working to improve the platform.

Cons: The filtering is difficult for some teachers to figure out and use (session filters for web access). That being said, the company is working on a new easier to use interface for that based on customer comments.

Overall: We have a 1:1 environment with Chromebooks in our district and NetOp Vision for Chromebooks has quickly become one of our teachers favorite go to apps. Not just to monitor what students are doing on their screen but to use it as an interactive part of class. I've tried several others both as a teacher and as Admin and NetOp IMO is the perfect solution.

Pros: I like that I am able to see the work that is being done on my students Chromebooks. When I'm working with small groups at the front table I am able to check on individual students to make sure they are on task. I can also freeze their Chromebooks if they are supposed to be working on something else. In addition, I also like being able to send them to specific websites. Finally, it works really well to be able to bring up my screen on their screen. That way they can follow along and know exactly what they need to do when working on certain activities when I give them back control.

Cons: I have had bad luck trying to limit what sites they are able to use. For example, if I want them to only be able to use a certain site, it doesn't always work the greatest and doesn't let them get to the site, especially if a password is involved.

Overall: I've used this software for parts of 3 school years. I've enjoyed having it at my disposal, especially when I have students that constantly try to get on Chromebooks. Freezing their screens has been wonderful.

Pros: I love the ease with which I can see what the students are doing. I also love the other features that allow me to send web site pages directly to the students and that I can send a private message to any student or multiple students at once.

Cons: Most of the time there is at least 1-2 students per class that are logged in, but will not show up on my screen even though they accept the screen sharing. If they shut the computer down and log in again, it will usually work, but I hate having to ask them to do that when they are trying to work on something.

Overall: It was super easy for our tech to put it on all 8th grade Chromebooks, and I have used it from multiple computers. Whenever I had an issue, I would send off an email and would get multiple replies by the end of that day. Super pleased with how well this works.

Pros: I work with students at an independent high school, which is sometimes a challenge to keep kiddos on task. This software helps me lock computers and keep an eye on their browsing in order to maintain a healthy learning environment

Cons: I think this software may slow down some of our computers, especially the older ones. This just helps show us which computers to upgrade

Overall: Quick and easy way to keep students on task in a lab environment

Great for managing my classroom. Easy to use.

Pros: Getting kids to pay attention to a lecture when they have a computer in front of them is not always easy. This software allows me to make sure they are paying attention.

Cons: Sometimes it is buggy, and it seems to slow down some computers. Usually a reboot will fix this problem though.

Overall: Great for making computers less distracting during class. Also useful for making sure all computers get shut down at the end of the day.

Pros: From a support perspective its easy to install / deploy. Also we dont run into issues with the software so supporting it is a breeze.

Cons: The only downfall we have noticed is it uses a lot of resources in the background which seems to slow down the other functionality of the computers.

Overall: Teachers can keep an eye on their students from their desktop and also share things with kids simultaneously thru the software.

Pros: I love the ability to control all of the computers in the classroom.

Cons: There is nothing about this program that I don't like.

Overall: I am able to view students computers all at one time, control their computer, blank screen their computer and show my computer on theirs. It is great for individual instruction and I could not imagine my classroom without it!

Pros: Netop is a robust yet simple platform that allows teachers to have additional classroom management tools at their fingertips. Chromebooks in a classroomo can be a powerful tool but with Netop it goes a step further by allowing teachers to ensure students are using their time wisely.

Cons: Netop needs to continue to expand and develop the product by adding new features. Maybe a locked browser?

Pros: NETOP is easy to implement, it works most of the time, it is easy to use and works well for teachers who don't have a lot of time to learn new software.

Cons: The software doesn't always work 100% of the time for every student. This is most often because of internet connectivity. It requires a really strong internet connection to work well.

Overall: Overall, since we have excellent internet in our school, the software works 95% of the time at an acceptable level. We love the web filter and screen monitoring. I love being able to lock the screens and send comments. I like the simplicity and find the software to be well worth the price.

Pros: Works well with Chromebooks and easy to use on this device.

Cons: Difficult to set up for our desktop computers. Tech support is impossible to get a live person on the phone. When we purchased new computers, we were not able to get the desktop version to work so we went with another product.

Overall: Not very impressed with tech support.

Pros: It does allow us to monitor our testing center.

Cons: We can only have one administrator on at a time, unless we want to purchase an iPad and pay more; the customer service is horrible and non-responsive; they upgrade with no warning and half the time we never know that it should have happened and ours doesn't get done; there is a huge lag time between the student screen and the administrator screen.

Pros: 2 years ago it was easier to get a call back.

Cons: My school principal purchased Netop, but I never used it. Our technology people couldn't get it going for me and claimed to have a hard time fixing "bugs" because it was difficult to get a quick call back---I gave up.

Overall: Netop is a great behavioral management tool but might be a bit confusing to install.
