STONEWARE Announces the Immediate Availability of LanSchool 7.7.3 and is named a CODiE Award Finalist

Indianapolis, IN – April 12, 2013 – Stoneware, Inc. , the leader in classroom management software, announced the immediate availability of LanSchool 7.7.3. The release contains over 300 enhancements and fixes, many of which were voted on by the LanSchool community of teachers and techs.

The ability for teachers to interact with students while other students have their screens blanked was the most requested of the new features. However, the ability for teachers to be alerted if a student tries to get around LanSchool by disabling their network was a close second. LanSchool’s audio capabilities are easier to access and have been significantly improved to use less network bandwidth.

“For this release we focused on listening to our customers and making changes they requested.” said Rick German, CEO of Stoneware, Inc. “This will be an exciting release for our user community because they’ll get to see their direct impact on making LanSchool the best classroom management product on the market!”

Pricing and Availability

LanSchool 7.7.3. is a free upgrade for customers under a current maintenance agreement. LanSchool educational pricing starts at USD$20 per device. Site licenses, volume and educational discounts are available.
