How do I monitor student Chromebooks?

Many school districts are being lured to Chromebooks because of their relatively low cost, dependability and access.  However, the new distractions that the Chromebooks offer to students is rarely considered.  Let’s face it, students have and always will goof off during class, and knowing what students are doing is even more important when technology is involved. In addition to fun and games, the Internet opens up a wide range of unsavory information to youth, and it is the teacher’s job to prevent students from accessing these websites during school.

With (classroom management software or SoftLINK), you can prohibit access to any website, allow access to only an approved list of websites, or block internet access completely.  Just imagine how much stress this will alleviate from your classroom management, knowing the students cannot get to websites that are not approved.  SoftLINK’s intuitive Tutor Console provides a thumbnail view of each student’s desktop, allowing you to monitor and see at a glance what each student is currently doing on their Chromebook. In addition to limiting students’ internet access, SoftLINK gives you full control over each student’s Chromebook.  While giving a lecture, teachers have the ability to lock each student’s keyboard and mouse and they will no longer have any control over their device.

SoftLINK classroom monitoring software is an invaluable tool for any electronic classroom.  SoftLINK supports not only Chromebooks, but Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, and iOS as well.  If your classroom has a mixture of devices, do not worry.  SoftLINK allows you to interact with each operating system and device from a single interface!  No matter what your training environment may be, SoftLINK will enhance the learning experience for the students and will provide teachers with the tools to effectively keep them on task.
