Insight for Education

Computers have the power to enhance the classroom experience for both students and teachers, but the benefits can easily be lost to distractive elements such as games, instant messaging, and web surfing. Instructors often have to deal with students who are not paying attention to classroom instruction, which makes it difficult to teach classes effectively.

Empowering Teachers With Control
Trying to coordinate simple tasks—whether it is having students open a website and then navigate through to the required page or trying to have them type in a complex URL—can often become a tedious and time-consuming task for teachers. Insight changes all this by delivering total control over classroom computers into the hands of the instructor. With Insight, teachers can easily launch applications and websites on all student workstations from a central teacher console. Teachers no longer need to deal with distractions when teaching—such as students surfing the Internet, typing on the keyboards, clicking their mice, and playing games. By blanking student screens, teachers can lock students out of their computers when they should be paying attention, and can monitor multiple student computers through Insight’s thumbnail viewing feature. Teachers can also monitor the running applications and Internet history on classrooms computers to ensure students are on task.

Enhancing The Student Learning Experience
Insight enhances the learning experience for students by turning standard computer labs into interactive learning environments. Students are able to request and receive help directly in their workstation session, and appreciate the discretion that the instructor chat feature offers. They can discuss course material and ask questions without leaving their workstations and without disturbing other students. The anonymity that the voting feature provides students allows them to often times provide a more accurate answer to questions posed to the class. Students can also develop their leadership skills by sharing their screen with other students (under teacher supervision) and share their knowledge with the rest of the class.

Advancing Technology Without Increasing Complexity
The entire Insight user interface was designed with teachers in mind, which is why it is so intuitive to use. Within just a few minutes of using Insight, teachers become familiar with how Insight works and the features that are available. Insight’s learning curve and network bandwidth requirements are a fraction of that required by competing products—making it extremely popular with IT personnel who want to deploy an easy-to-use teaching product that won’t generate helpdesk requests or slow network traffic.
