  1. Make a savable/printable report which would allow me to show parents what sites their child visits and for how long during class.

    • iPad application for my teacher dashboard

      It would be great for this to be an app so that I may walk around with an ipad checking students screens and still be mobile within the classroom.

        We are planning to make our webapp more mobile friendly in the near future!

      • Make the student activity searchable so I can look at just one student's activity history. This would help with parent conferences.

        I would love to be able to click on a student's name and it show me their average history on the computer. This way if a student is getting a poor grade in my class, I can show the parents that their activity online isn't helping their performance. It would be easier to correct chronic misuse that way instead of having to open it session by session and find their activity. That takes way too long and isn't practical.

        • Audible & visual alerts when students open non-approved websites.

          Create an alert (audible & visual) when a student goes to a non-approved website. Just like my email makes a chiming noise when I get an email. It would be great if my computer would make a noise to let me know someone is on a website that isn't approved (the feature of creating "approved" websites would be a part of this). Then, if I'm walking around my room I can go to my desk and see who is doing what (the students profile flashing would be an easy way to indicate who the "offender" was) and redirect as necessary.

            Awesome idea! We love the idea of increasing visibility of off-task behaviour!

          • Be Able to make student the presenter - Student be able to share their screen with the class

            Ability for the teacher to have access to pick a student in the classroom and push out his/her screen with the other students and/or teacher in the classroom.

            • Get rid of student screens that aren't active

              When a student closes their screen and you get the orange computer with the number 1 and they have started a new screen and you have the green computer with the number 2. Allow us to be able to get rid of the orange computer with the number 1 so it isn't taking up room on the screen.

                  Great idea! We’re adding reporting features in the near future and this would be a great addition!

                • Add a sort feature based on "level of concern" so the few students who require more frequent monitoring are at the top and easily visible.

                  Every class has one or two (or a few) students who tend to need more close monitoring than their peers. However, it's difficult to pick them out of the tile or list views. Allowing us to give a quick rating of students (red, yellow, green?) and then sort by "level of concern" would make it far easier to keep an eye on students who need it the most. Thanks!

                  • Give teachers a way to export the timeline details for a student session for a report of their history.

                    Right now we can look back at the timelines of students in a session, but it would be nice to export that data if you needed to show a student how they were using their time and how much time was spent on other windows.

                    • class period analytics to show how much time students spent on various sites.

                      I would like to know how well different interventions work with student for increasing on task behavior. I would like a report which shows during a class period how much time students spend on each site. It would be nice if it provided whole class and student level data.

                        • Make the timeline controls visible, even if I've scrolled down.

                          When using the timeline, it is difficult to scroll through one student's activities when I have to keep going back to the top to move left or right on the timeline.

                              • Scrolling without the lock/unlock options moving

                                Scrolling without the lock/unlock options tool bar moving. With larger classes I have to scroll down to check a specific students name and then scroll back up to the top to lock and send message or to unlock. Would be convenient if that whole tool bar would be separate from student screens and able to access at all times.

                                  Thanks for this idea! Great example of a use case which makes this necessary. We plan to make commands a lot easier to access in the near future!

                                • "When will this class be over?" should allow for custom input.

                                  "When will this class be over?" should allow for custom input. 45 minutes may not be long enough while 1 hour may be too long. The students may be in a different class by then.

                                  • Some Visual way to see what classes are active

                                    As the IT Manager I have to have myself added as an owner to all of the classes. Therefore the My Classrooms view is really full. I would like the Icons to have some visual way of telling me what classes are active. I know there is the drop down list at the upper right, but at any given time I may have 28 classes in that list

                                      Have an audit log like goguardian. My teachers are already inadvertently archiving classrooms and generally making a mess.

                                      • From the timeline, can we see a screenshot?

                                        It would be great if the timeline view offered a screen shot so I can see exactly what the student was doing after the session.

                                          Currently this is a manual process by taking a “snapshot” in the screens view. In the future we’d like to make this more automatic by overlaying snapshots on the timeline and taking snapshots automatically when certain behaviour occurs

                                        • Should be able to change a teachers Role

                                          I should be able to change a teachers Role from owner, to teacher, to helper without first deleting them and then re adding them.
