ActiveInstruct™ Live Classroom Video

Our ActiveInstruct™ feature provides instructors with real-time viewing of a student's browsing session.  Instructors can view a students' live screen and their opened tabs.   This allows for spot checking access attempts into filtered content and the redirection of students as deemed necessary.  To create a classroom please see our ActiveInstruct™ Manage Classroom document.

To start a live classroom either click the play button in the green circle next to the class or click "Start Now".

As shown above, if this setting is enabled and the "Send distraction notifications to students" option is checked, a message will be sent to off-task students: "You appear to be off task. This has been reported to your teacher."

Deledao Live Classroom: Co-Teaching

There could be a scenario that a student belongs to more than one classroom created by different teachers, and teachers can start classes at the same time. Co-teaching can support this case by allowing one teacher to request the student be transferred to another classroom's session. 

The following is an example of what the co-teaching process looks like:

  1. Student10 are in both Math and English classes.
  2. Math teacher starts the class first, and student10 is in the class.
  3. When English teacher starts the class, she will see the following: 

Once English teacher clicks "Apply to all", the student will be in the session assigned the English teacher's classroom.
