  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Automate account creation for teachers

        Automate account creation for teachers

        Possibly pull email addresses from Google admin portal to create teacher accounts.

        alternatively support Active Directory Integration

        • Google Apps Organization Syncing for Teachers and Students

          Make students and teachers available from Google Apps Organizations. 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.

          • Apply different scenes to scheduled sessions

            It would be helpful if a scene other than the default scene could be assigned to a scheduled session. For example, we take a quiz online every Friday, so it would help if I could schedule a session for Fridays that uses a testing scene.

            • Allow us to delete archived classes and past sessions.

              Allow us to delete archived classes after we no longer need them. They add up after awhile!

              • 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.

                • Watch students who are logged in from a pc

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

                    • Scrolling timeline on the timelines screen

                      Actually have the timeline scroll down as you move down your student list so you don't have to go up to the top of the page to move the time.

                        • 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.

                              planned  ·  Tyler Shaddix responded

                              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

                            • Bulk import classes and class lists

                              As a domain admin, it would be helpful to be able to upload a list of classes (2 columns: Class Name, Teacher Email) and then bulk upload a list of students in those classes (Student Email, Class Name). That would save our teachers a lot work and make it much more likely they would actually use this product.

                                  It would be awesome if I could see a URL by just hovering over a section of student timeline. It would save a lot of time.

                                        Hi! We currently allow students to be added by email. Students can be removed by clicking the “x” by their name in the Classroom Students section.

                                        Are there other options you need to add and remove students? I’d love to hear about them!

                                        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.

                                        • allow teachers to see extensions in use.

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