Vision 7.1 Modification Notes

Current version: 7.1 Latest build: Build 6858 Shipping from: March 28th 2011 Usability is King! At Netop we want to build a 21st century classroom management solution that supports teachers in their teaching and learning in IT labs. We also want to be more responsive to teacher needs. So, we undertook a comprehensive survey of schools using Vision, visiting and speaking with teachers to understand what they liked and valued in Vision and what direction they felt Vision should take. It was clear that usability is king for teachers, as this leads to greater teacher confidence in the use of Vision and successful adoption throughout schools IT labs. Based on this conclusion, Netop invested in redesigning the Vision user interface and a number of enhanced usability features that will help teachers, both new to Vision7 or upgrading, to quickly grow their confidence in using Vision7. Continuing on this theme of enhancing usability, we have extended the new Vision7 user interface design to cover the Vision Shortcut Bar and Netop Pointer, our on-screen and interactive whiteboard annotation tool. This maintenance release also includes a number of issue resolutions. Enhanced Usability for Teachers This section describes how the user interface enhancements of Vision7 have been extended to incorporate additional features in version 7.1. Refresh of the Vision Shortcut Bar We have extended our new Vision7 icons to cover the Vision Shortcut Bar, making this popular toolbar consistent with the main Vision Dashboard for ease of use. Further improvements include: When the Vision Shortcut Bar is in Auto Hide mode and is docked (positioned tight to the edge of the computer screen), there is a delay of 200 milliseconds in reacting to the mouse hovering over it. This delay has been introduced to ensure that teachers can more easily access the Minimize, Restore and Close buttons at the top right of a maximized application, without the toolbar auto-appearing and obscuring these screen elements. When the Vision Shortcut Bar is in Auto Hide mode and is undocked, free to float over open application windows, the Shortcut Bar becomes gradually more transparent and only returns to being opaque when the mouse cursor is positioned inside the Shortcut Bar. This behavior makes it easier for the teacher to continue to use Vision, or another application, while having quick access to the shortcut toolbar. The Vision Shortcut Bar is more compact, offering even more working space for teachers to view thumbnails and demonstrations. Additionally, the command labels now wrap neatly and the bar displays with a shadow when docked at the top of the screen, so it is more easily distinguishable from controls of other applications. Although subtle, these enhancements are typical of the many changes we have made to ensure Vision7 continues to be the easiest and most effective classroom management software. Refresh of Vision’s Pointer tool We have extended our new Vision7 style to include Pointer, Vision’s on-screen and interactive whiteboard annotation tool. New icons make the individual features more easily distinguished from one another. These enhancements will help ensure that Vision’s Pointer remains one of the most comprehensive and flexible annotation tools for teachers that can be used across all applications and most interactive whiteboards. Additional Language Support Netop Vision7, version 7.1 is being released in the following languages with translated user interfaces and help files:
  1. English
  2. German
  3. French
  4. Italian
  5. Spanish – this is the first Spanish release for Netop Vision.
To ensure a translation suitable for education, each has been undertaken by native speakers. Furthermore, each User Interface has been reviewed by a native speaker familiar with the education market for the appropriate language.

Netop Vision 7 Released!



The new version of Netop Vision 7 introduces a fully redesigned interface, making teaching with computers more effective.

What's New in Vision7:

Over the past year, Netop's development team met with teachers and IT administrators at schools across the U.S. and Europe, who almost unanimously agreed that usability is the most important aspect of their classroom management solution, followed closely by features. With that in mind, Vision7 was redesigned to make the most-used features easily accessible. With a modern ribbon interface, educators will find all the features they know grouped into tabs to allow for larger icons with text labels. Frequently used features are at the forefront, so helping students learn is even easier. Existing Vision users will find some significant changes in the user interface. For example, the features in the Surf-Lock and App-Control plug-ins are now fully integrated within Vision7, and have been renamed. However the set of features provided has not changed. The results of Netop's beta testing have been positive, with teachers commenting that Vision7 "works beautifully."

Upgrades and License Keys:

This upgrade is free to customers with a current Netop Advantage agreement, but does require a new license key. Please note that there are no longer any separate license keys for Surf-Lock, App-Control and Pointer, instead this functionality is included with the standard Vision7 license. Netop will begin issuing new license keys to license contacts on Wednesday, and expects to have this process complete on Friday, January 15th. In some countries your license key may be issued by your local Netop partner. If you have questions about your license, or wish to purchase an upgrade, please contact info@codework-systems.com.

Installation and Technical Support:

Vision 7 may/may not be installed on top of Vision6. There is no need to/You must/For best results uninstall Vision6 prior to installing Vision7 on teacher and student computers.
