Features and Benefits:

TeacherView
The Aerohive TeacherView application is a simple-to-use web interface that provides classroom status to a teacher at login, without requiring the teacher to pre-confi gure any parameters. The graphical display quickly shows the Client Health status of all the classroom computers, and enables a teacher to view which online resources students are accessing. The teacher can also enable or disable access to the Internet and local Student Network, as well as redirect students to a specifi c online web resource.

Client Health & Computer Cart Management
The Client Health status is a signifi cant feature of TeacherView. This health status tracks the data rate and wireless transmission success of client computers attached to an Aerohive AP, and will display this normally complex information in a very easy-to-read status bar format.

TeacherView Cart is available for free as part of the Aerohive HiveManager NMS product suite, including with HiveManager Online deployments. TeacherView Cart requires Administrator confi guration of pre-determined Computer Carts or Student Rosters.
