COOL Focus

Help students focus on what matters

Stay in control! View online learning activity and progress in real time by following the screen of one or more students from your own device.

Next-level classroom management

Manage online learning the easy way. Simply monitor the screen of one, multiple, or all students to see what they’re working on in real time. This means you can provide guidance during the learning process, not just after! Need your class’s full attention? Lock browsers for any number of minutes when giving a group instructions. Or switch to COOL Check, where students can only access the apps and websites you select for them.

High student participation

Help students focus and actively involve them in class work. Open or close websites in their browsers, simply from your own device. You can even open up new ways of collaborative learning. For example, by sharing students’ screens on your interactive display in front of the class. Is it time to complete an assignment? Let your students work independently, without losing control of your classroom.

Help your students stay on the right websites

Integrated with COOL Check

Personalized education

Easily create subgroups within your Classroom. This allows you to push specific educational content and activities to students who need a little more explanation. Or to a group of students who have already completed an assignment. Perform an action to a single student or a selected group of students in just 1 click! Find out how COOL Focus works.

View monitoring history

Students can see on their screen when and by whom they are being monitored. As a teacher, you can view students’ browser history from previous monitoring sessions up to 7 days back. An admin can see how long, when and for which students a teacher has used monitoring. This way, everything stays transparent.

COOL Platform

COOL Focus is a premium module of the COOL Platform. An educational online learning platform that gives teachers and students access to all relevant applications with 1 login. Explore more COOL modules: COOL Easy Login, COOL Sync, and COOL Check.

You can also easily block and filter these websites to help the student focus on school tasks. When you have different possibilities to control your classroom, you feel more secure.

We’re happy to help

  • Is COOL Focus GDPR compliant?

    It definitely is! Student can see a ‘Monitoring icon’ when a teacher is monitoring their browser screen. When a student hovers over this icon, they can see which teacher is monitoring them. The following message is displayed:  “Teacher name is monitoring”. Another condition to be GDPR compliant is that the module is used for educational purposes only. COOL’s main goal is to help students focus on their schoolwork.

  • Can teachers monitor students when they are at home?

    By default, Monitoring and COOL Check are only available when a student is at school. To allow Monitoring outside of the school’s WiFi network, ask your school’s IT admin to remove the IP address restrictions. The admin can set a specific time window during which the Monitoring function is available. For example from Monday to Friday between 9AM and 3PM. In this way, students can never be monitored outside of school hours or on weekends.

  • How much does COOL Focus cost?

    This module has a market conform price. If you combine COOL Monitoring login with other COOL modules you will get a nice personalized pricing. Discover the cost-benefit for your school.

  • I have a Microsoft account. Can I use COOL?

    Yes, you can. You need to create a Google Workspace account, which we will sync with your Microsoft account. That way, the entire school can log in using their own Microsoft account.

  • I want to install COOL. What do I need to do?
