The LanSchool Teacher’s Assistant is LanSchool’s teacher console for the iOS. When paired with a LanSchool Teacher console running on either Mac or Windows, the Teacher’s Assistant will have the following benefits for teachers, professors or corporate trainers.
Reduce Student Distractions
Teachers can reduce student distractions by Blanking Screens, Limiting Applications and Limiting Web Browsing on student computers. This helps direct student attention from their computer to the teacher.
Ideal for monitoring student activity within a classroom setting, the Thumbnail feature allows you to view all screens as well as see the current application and website that the students are running.
Assess Student Understanding
Students can be quickly polled during a lecture with true/false or multiple choice questions.
Help Individual Students
Students can silently Request Help from the teacher. A small question mark appears on the thumbnail with the student question.

Ratings and Reviews
Good but needs some work
Would like the ability to use the app without another computer. So would need the ability to select channels, enter your different subnets you want to monitor. Also if we could get the ability to remote control would be nice. When you zoom to see the screen larger it gets pixelated. Maybe they were saving bandwidth by doing that. So pretty much the full blown version but on the iPad.
Great app when it worked
This was a very useful app until it stopped working with the updated iOS. Hopefully Lanschool release a fix soon because it is a great tool in the classroom.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
