Windows for Engage

Multi-Platform Classroom Management

How do you make an already robust classroom management tool even better? You add support for another major operating system.

FileWave 12.2 introduces Windows support for Engage, ensuring teachers have the best tool for multi-platform environments. Whether it’s a classroom with a mix of device types, or a district that needs the flexibility to support different devices in different schools, grades levels, or classes, FileWave Engage is the one solution for all situations.

Like with the other supported operating systems supported in Engage, Windows will support Launch App, Send Message, Send URL, Lock Device with Message, and more to “engage” students and enhance the classroom experience.

Customizable FileWave Kiosk

Extended customization options

FileWave 12.2 takes customization to the next level with the ability to fully customize the FileWave Kiosk. Prior to version 12.2, organizations could customize certain elements, such as the Kiosk window title and logo, but FileWave 12.2 significantly extends the customization possibilities for desktop and mobile devices. From customizable colors to icons, these changes provide organizations with numerous options for branding and style preferences. These changes can then be easily deployed as a Fileset.

Here are some examples of default vs. customized Kiosks for desktop and mobile:
