Manage

One key strand of classroom management is exactly that: “managing” the students and their devices, to maximise time spent on teaching.

Start-up

  • Power on or off and log in/log out all classroom computers from the teacher’s PC.
  • Blank all students’ screens to gain attention and also lock their mice and keyboards.
  • Automatically re-connect to students’ PCs if they are rebooted.
  • Use layouts of students on teachers’ screens to match the layout of the physical classroom.
  • Use individual teachers profiles to deliver the features needed by each teacher.
  • Use a one-click “Request Assistance” option from the teacher’s toolbar if technical support is needed.
  • Reset students’ system passwords without IT support.
