I suggest you ...

Keep users on a specific website (during a test for example)

Possibility to view a screen full-screen to use it on the interactive whiteboard in the classroom.

    Hello!

    Thank you very much for the wonderful suggestions. We are happy to share we have officially launched our new “Scenes” feature that supports the ability to create a “test environment” in your classroom that keeps students on a specific site. This new feature also includes other useful tools such as having the ability to auto-open tabs, manage tab usage (set the max number of tabs a student can open), and provides even more ways to manage site accessibility in your classroom. Check it out and please let us know what you think! We love hearing from you.

    - Nickelle GoGuardian Teacher Product Manager

        I can't wait to test this out. Even though I have fourth graders, I'm always on the lookout to see if they open additional tabs during testing. This will help me monitor them more carefully, and ease the stress of always checking their screens. Thanks!

        I think locking down computers during testing is essential. Students can google answers, talk back and forth through gmail and also type question and answers in a google doc. It takes all my time on test days just to make sure nobody has any other tabs open. This would be so helpful and make students more productive during class time.

        It would help to guide the students if teachers were able to lock out all websites or open only certain ones for their students.

        Provide a button or check box for teachers to easily disable / enable Youtube access by their created classrooms.

        This would be fantastic. I'd like to block certain sites like coolmathgames (I teach social studies) while the district keeps it open for teachers that utilize it. If I could pick and choose (much like how LANschool does it) it would increase productivity a ton.

        Manage student websites so that students are unable to leave one or so that they cannot access other tabs or pages in their browser. This would be used during a testing situation.

        I would like to have the control of blocking websites on students' devices from time to time without making it a WHOLE district block.

        I would like to make a list of websites and upload them into gogaurdian and those would be the only sites my students could visit. These list could be saved so that I could access them later and upload the same list again.

        make it a possibility for a teacher to set specific websites that can be open. Allow a group of allowed websites for the students to access.

        It would be nice if teachers could block all sites except for the ones they want students to access during their session. For example, I would like to block everything but google docs.

        In Hapara Highlighhts, I can send students to a series of tabs and ONLY allow these tabs and then return them to their tabs when I release them. That would be great here!

        For example if my students are looking at a primary source and I want them to also have their notetaking Google doc open at the same time.

        It would be great if we could limit the websites to a list that the teacher chooses. This way students would be forced to stay on the educational websites approved a that time.

        Google docs only option. Maybe by time schedule? i.e. From 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 pm (our required study time), a user can ONLY access google docs (docs, sheets, slides, etc.).

        A way to block certain websites for a class would be very useful. For example, I want to block YouTube in my lesson however another teacher will want access at the same time,
