See the Difference in Learning
The comprehensive classroom-ready features and capabilities offered by the Learning Series software include LabCam, a touch-optimized application consisting of six easy-to-use scientific inquiry tools leveraging the camera in different ways, allowing students to analyze the visual data present in their photos and videos. McAfee® AntiVirus, included with a 5 year license, offers proactive protection to keep users’ digital lives more secure.
The WebCam Companion enables media capture and management, noise filtering, digital archiving and annotation. Additionally, an optimized e-reader supports multiple formats and annotation, making it easier to keep track of notes in one central location as they read. Teachers can remotely assist students as needed and assess work in real-time, providing valuable feedback while the student learns. The software also helps teachers organize lesson plans and student work in one central location for easy access.
Outside of the classroom, parents have the option of setting up the software as a simple management tool to keep track of homework and grade assessment from home. While in use, the software automatically changes students’ access policies based on their location, customizing the learning environment to best suit a home or classroom environment. The simplified infrastructure makes it easy to deploy on multiple laptops and improves recovery, backup and restore functions to mitigate loss of data or information.
