LanSchool Classic Teacher Console 

The LanSchool Teacher Console is the interface teachers will use to manage their classroom and students.  It contains all the tools necessary for a teacher to effectively interact with students and create a controlled/safe digital environment to promote student engagement.  The console itself is very easy to use.  Many of these icons you see up top can also be accessed by the drop-down menu on the teacher console. 

For a printable guide outlining commonly used features of LanSchool, see the LanSchool Classic Quick Start Guide.

The menu is conveniently broken up into categories which best describe the tools within. 

The categories are:
  1. Demonstrate
  2. Monitor
  3. Speak
  4. Restrict
  5. Administer
  6. View
  7. Help 
If you find yourself wanting to change the default layout of the toolbar buttons, you can customize it by going to View > Configure Toolbar...

Once installed, the Teacher Console will be seen running in the system tray.  On Windows, the console can be launched using any of the following methods: 
  1. Left click the system tray icon. 
  2. Right click the system tray icon and choose "Open LanSchool Console..."
  3. Use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+ALT+L to launch the console.
