We know that IT professionals have a full plate, and the last thing they need is a hassle when they want to do a simple self-repair. While other computer manufacturers state that self-repair will void existing warranties and refuse to offer parts, CTL supports self-repair for qualified IT professionals. Let’s say you have a Chromebook or laptop that just needs a new keyboard. With other companies, you probably have to ship your unit to a corporate headquarters that may be clear across the country, or the world. Then, you’re at the mercy of the company to replace the keyboard on their timeline. By the time you get the unit back you’ve wasted valuable time and on something you could have done in about five minutes!

At CTL, here’s how it will work if you’d like to self-repair: First, we need to confirm that you’re a qualified IT Professional. You can access this simple jot form here. Let us know your CTL model and describe what parts you’ll need. We keep parts on hand in our warehouse, located in Beaverton, Oregon so you won’t be waiting for spare parts to come in from overseas. We’ll ship you what you need and you’ll be able to easily and quickly take care of simple self-repairs hassle free! If your product is still under warranty, not to worry. Self-repairs do not void CTL’s warranties.

CTL takes pride in our customer service and our hassle-free self-repair policy is just another way to support our customers. If you’re an IT professional, don’t hesitate to contact your sales representative to learn more!

Easy to use and implement, Vision helps teachers do more in less time. Save time, enhance learning, and keep students safe and on-task by controlling student screens, monitoring activitiy, blocking websites, and sharing screens.

See Every Screen

Vision allows teachers to see everything their students see on their computers – even outside the browser window. At a glance, teachers can recognize who needs help or special attention. Is someone struggling with a lesson? Playing on social media? Cheating on a test? Teachers will know firsthand by seeing live views of all student screens on their computer. It’s even possible to customize the teacher view to match classroom layout.

Share Teacher’s Screen

No need for projectors or handouts – Vision gives every student a front row seat. Focus attention and facilitate comprehension by sharing the teacher’s screen on every student device.

Blank Screens

With the press of a button, teachers can refocus students’ attention, reclaiming instruction time, by blanking student screens and blocking input. The lock screen image can be customized to add personal flair.

Filter and Block Websites

Social media can wait until the lesson is over. Enforce your classroom’s online rules and use the internet to enhance learning, rather than detracting from it. Keep students safe, focused, and on-task by controlling internet access – all with the push of a button.
