NetOp Vision 7 embodies true enhanced usability for teachers. Vision 7's user interface has simple controls tuned to support the everyday tasks of teachers. Strengthened resource management features ensure teachers can manage the IT learning environment, keeping student on task while supporting differentiated learning.
Quick to pick up
The Vision 7 user interface requires very little time to become proficient in its use. Whether new to Vision 7, or upgrading, the Vision 7 user interface is familiar and accessible, as it is based on the popular Microsoft Ribbon. Key classroom management tasks undertaken in the software have been enhanced, so that workflows are more intuitive.
Improved appearance and clarity
With Vision 7 teachers have maximum use of the screen displaying student computer thumbnails. Icons have a modern look and greater differentiation between similar commands, with the rule set of icon metaphors with color encoding which, although subtle, helps inform teachers of an icon's command in an intuitive way.
Improved functionality and workflow
In the simple tab-based Ribbon interface implemented in Vision 7, the features that teachers use often are located on one tab, grouped with related commands and with the essential commands, placed in the upper left to center area of the screen.
Error messages and message bar
Error messages in Vision 7 have been revised with teachers' needs in mind. Explanations help inform teachers, allowing them to be more self-sufficient in resolving issues. Furthermore, some of the system notifications that do not require confirmation are displayed in the message bar and after a short time automatically clear. Or, teachers can dismiss the messages whenever they wish.
