Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 29, 2011

The chat window is easily hidden when not in use and chat history is automatically stored for reference.
MyVision provides comprehensive teaching features while still having a low price point, making the software affordable for every educator. MyVision Basic allows educators to use remote control features, chat functionality and Active Directory integration, as well as Internet blocking, screen-blanking and demonstration capabilities.
