  1. Horizontal and Vertical Scrolling on Timeline

    Please make it so we can scroll through a student's history on the Timeline page, even if the student is further down. Right now, the only place you can scroll horizontally is at the top of the page. If I want to see a student's history who is further down the page, I have to keep scrolling up, then sideways, then back down, then up, sideways, then back down, repeatedly.

    • Disable Double Click Define/Translate Function

      Teachers who give digital assessments need to be able to block the newer Chrome function that allows a student to double click on a word to see a pop-up of the word's definition or translation (for foreign languages). I have had to resort to using the snipping tool to take pictures of questions and then uploading the picture of the question instead of having a text question. Students cannot translate a picture, thankfully, but this creates a lot of extra work to keep students honest!

      • Isolate Individual Timeline

        The ability to isolate an individual student's timeline and hide the rest momentarily. This would allow teachers the ability to conference with individual students about their computer use and offer feedback, while maintaining student previously for others.

        • create a way to change URL types in a scene?

          I've tried putting in some websites to "base URLs" but it is forced to the section for "specific URLs". Is there a way for the teacher to categorize it?

            • Exporting a Scene

              Export a scene for a colleague so that he/she doesn't have to start from scratch. Not all teachers understand how to set scenes, but can use a scene. Also, let administration create a library of scenes to be used by teachers.

              • Add the ability to change Scenes on a individual student basis

                I do love using Scenes. When giving an online test (we use EADMS), I set up scenes to open the tab to the EADMS student login page. I don't allow any other pages. It is a great feature.

                My only wish is that I could selectively remove the restrictive scene from individual students once they finish the test. A lot of my students finish early and want to utilize the remaining class time to work on other homework. I end up removing the screen once a handful of students have finished the test and monitoring the students who are still…

                • Allow teachers to apply different scenes to different groups of students' computers within the same classroom.

                  Many times, I wish I had the ability to use 2 or 3 different scenes within the same classroom and apply them to students' screens selectively. Sometimes, this is for the purpose of differentiated instruction. Sometimes, it's because I have 1 or 2 kids making up tests, another group working on a project, and others who are finished with all assigned work and asking to study for another teacher's test.

                  • Enable us to organize the classes by time of day or class period instead of just organizing them alphabetically

                    Currently classes are organized alphabetically. It would be of greater use to organize them by class period or time of day.

                    • If we could have a running list of student that we locked that day and could unlock them when they leave our class.

                      When a student leaves my class, sometimes they are still locked in their next class. It would be nice to have an easy to find list of kids that I've locked that day so I can unlock them (without starting another session of that class)

                      • be able to create classrooms from device OU.

                        I'd love to be able to have a classroom created from a device OU in google admin. This would allow my teachers who are in a common area (like library) where the students are different at any time of the day and change every day throughout the periods to monitor what students are doing on these specific machines.

                        The classroom would be able to monitor this specific set of devices, no matter who is logged on them.

                          We could really use the ability to choose what page students access at any point in time. Can you guys give us the option of redirecting students at will?

                            This way the student will know which scene they are still in if the teacher forgets to release their account after class period is over. At the moment I have no way to know which teacher's scene a student is in.

                            • add a function to view all signed in computers

                              Teachers often have students using computers during enrichment periods, but those students are not always in the same class period. Teachers should be able to monitor when any of their students from any given classperiod, are logged in to one of the computers, regardless of when that student is logged in.

                                  • Include multiple scenes in a single class and session.

                                    I would suggest making it possible to apply multiple scenes in a single class and a single session. If I have a small group, station setup, I could choose 4 students to have one scene, 10 students to have another scene, and 5 students to have a third scene. At this time, I would have to create three classes, three scenes, and three sessions to do this.

                                    This would also come in handy to slowly release students from a scene during testing. I could then monitor the students still in the testing scene, as well as the students in a…

                                      1. Narrow the bars so that a larger number of students' browsing histories can be viewed without having to scroll.

                                      2. If student is absent, move that to the bottom (instead of alphabetically) so that we don't have to scroll.

                                        It would be nice if students who sign on when a session is currently running were automatically visible in the session once added as students. Currently, the only work-around I have found is to end the current session and create a new session after the new student has logged in. That student then - and only then - becomes visible in TimeLines and Screens.

                                        • Reconnect button

                                          Have a button to reconnect a student after they have been excluded. Also have a way to reconnect a student if they lose internet instead of having to restart the session for everyone.
