  1. Drag and and Drop Student Thumbnail Tiles in Live Session View

    By allowing teachers to rearrange the listed order of students in sessions, teachers can better monitor the students who are more likely to be on the wrong site.

      Thank you for your suggestion. Your feature requests help us stay in tune with what you want, need and expect so we could always deliver solutions to solve your classroom management problems.

      We have planned the development of this feature and our team will soon start working on it. We will keep you posted along the way. Stay tuned! Thanks for making GoGuardian part of your classroom.

      Warm Regards,
      GoGuardian Teacher Product Team

    • 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!

      • 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!

          • 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.

            • allow teachers to open a chat dialogue directly with a student by clicking on the screen in screen view mode.

              Currently the only way to open a chat is by clicking on the chat and then clicking on the students name. It would be so much easier to have a way to click on the students screen and chat with them. Maybe make a small chat bubble icon on each of the screens in screens mode, or have a small chat icon on the active tab when in timeline mode.

              • 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!

                • 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!

                    • 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.

                          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

                          • "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.

                                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
