COOL Monitoring

Manage your classroom

Stay in control! View browser activity and student progress in real time by monitoring the screen of one or more students from your own device.

Next-level classroom management

Monitor the screen of one, several or all students to keep track of their progress in real time. Provide guidance during the learning process instead of afterwards. Need your students’ full attention? Lock their browsers for any number of minutes when giving your group direct instruction. Or lock them in COOL Exam mode, where students can only access apps and websites selected by their teacher.

Boost student participation

Actively involve students in class work by opening or closing websites in their browsers, simply from your own device. Open up new ways of mutual learning, for example by sharing students’ screens on your interactive display in front of the class. Let students work independently, without losing control of your classroom.

  • How much does COOL Monitoring cost?

  • Is COOL Monitoring 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 Exam mode 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.

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

    Yes, you can. You need to create a G Suite 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?

    You need to be a G Suite domain administrator to install COOL. Fill in the form on this page to download COOL. Next, go to the G Suite Marketplace, where you will see a wizard that explains how to install COOL. Select which teachers and students you want to transfer from Google Classroom to COOL. Later on, you can easily add or remove teachers and students in G Suite.
