  1. Ability to Close Tabs from Timeline View

    It would be helpful to have the ability to close student tabs from the timeline view instead of having to switch to the screen view.

    • Automatically schedule Scenes.

      I'm exploring the Scenes function and really enjoying it. I would like to suggest that you add the ability to schedule them. For example, my class begins the day with 90 minutes of math, I'd like for the math scene to activate at 8:45 and end at 10:15. We do an hour of reading next, so the Reading scene should start at 10:15. It would be one less thing I have to do at the computer, which pulls me away from engaging with students. It would also better help establish class routines by automatically opening the site we use for…

      • Allow teachers to view all activity on students screen.

        Students are able to use Chrome extensions for chatting that are not view-able through go-guardian. Make it possible to view all activity or freeze one screen at a time if we suspect activity.

          • one time scheduling for the future

            My school has a rotating schedule so when I schedule a session for period 1 on Monday, it will work for this Monday but not next Monday because I will have a different class. I often have other teachers forgetting to turn off their scheduled time after it has been recorded so it messes with the students' ability to do work in another class. I propose that I can set a session to be scheduled for a certain one time occurrence in the future that would not be repeated again unless I schedule it again.

            • Custom Time limits

              My classes are 85 minutes and 42 minutes.. It would be great to create custom time limits... We also in my area have many school delays due to weather. Custom times would be a great feature.

                    Extensions do not show up in the teacher view, and many of the games are extensions.

                    • 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…

                        • Ability to add students when synced with Google Classroom

                          It would be nice to be able to add visiting students when the Google Classroom is synced. Sometimes a student will be in a class that they don't normally have, but the teacher has already synced their classroom to Google, but there is no way to add the student for the day without having them join a Google Classroom for a class they are not a part of.

                          • 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

You should be able to choose an OU in Google Apps and then all teachers in the OU are automatically enabled for teacher access. Then similarly with students, you choose an OU and those address are choosable, or perform auto fill for teachers adding them to classes.

                                  • I would like to be able to end the restriction on certain students in a scene without excluding them.

                                    That way if they've once they've finished the assignment(s) for the day, they can work on things for another class or something while the rest of the class is still working. That way you can still monitor their screens.

                                      Sometimes students have forgotten their chrome book or the battery is dead and we put them on a desktop computer for the period.

                                      • Shared Exception Lists

                                        Can GoGuardian develop something for admins or teachers be able to share exceptions list? It is has become tougher for my teachers to make lists when using the Block mode to ensure all our applications are allowed through. It would be efficient and beneficial for all schools dealing with this. Thanks!

                                        • Make students transportable b/t classes.

                                          allow students to be moved to other classes.
