How to monitor a student (screen and voice)
1. Left click on the student that you wish to monitor.
2. You see a small thumbnail image of their screen
3. Click on Remote Control or blue rectangle to see that students screen in detail
4. Click the X to stop monitoring that student
When monitoring the student will have no idea that you are doing so and you will also hear everything they are saying and listening to.
The name of the student you are monitoring appears in the top left. The student’s mouse location is shown as a green arrow for you to follow.
The Monitor option will be selected and this is the discrete mode that allows you to watch without them knowing.
Whilst monitoring a student screen you can take full or shared control of their mouse and keyboard if required by clicking either the Remote control or Collaborate icons.
Tip: If the student is working on a text document or presentation and you wish to work with them to correct mistakes/suggest improvements then select the Collaborate option. This means that you can take it in turns to enter text and discuss.
Tip: If the student is working on a web page or interactive type application then select the Remote control option. This means that you both don’t up trying to move the mouse at the same time!
