In order for Dyknow Teachers to see student device thumbnails in their monitoring sessions, students must login to their devices with the correct Username or Email Address - the same credentials that appear in their Dyknow student user profile.
Students will never login to the Dyknow portal. However, student data is stored in Dyknow because students are identified in a monitoring session based on their local device username (email address).
