DyKnow Cloud - iOS Configuration Options

Follow

DyKnow Cloud's iPad app has a 4+ rating in the Apple App Store.

Schools have the following options for configuring student use on the iPad app:

Require Active Monitor (RAM) = Students can't use the DyKnow app unless one of their teachers is running a DyKnow class, and therefore monitoring.

Require Google Safe Search (RGSS) = When students type anything into the DyKnow app's navigation bar, they are immediately redirected to Google Safe Search. (i.e. Students type FastMath.com and but cannot access the Fast Math site immediately. They first see the Fast Math listing within Google Safe Search results.)

1. RAM disabled, RGSS disabled. This is the default for most schools. 

  • Students can use the DyKnow app any time, including when teacher is not monitoring / running a DyKnow class.
  • Students can type a URL (i.e. FastMath.com) into the DyKnow app URL bar and access FastMath.com immediately.
  • If students type non-URL text into the DyKnow app URL search bar (i.e. "what is the population of Indianapolis"), a search will be performed using Google Safe Search.

2. RAM enabled, RGSS disabled.

  • Students can only use the DyKnow app when their teacher is monitoring / running a DyKnow class.
  • When students are monitored, they can type a URL (i.e. FastMath.com) and access FastMath.com immediately.
  • If students type non-URL text into the DyKnow app URL search bar (i.e. "what is the population of Indianapolis"), a search will be performed using Google Safe Search.

3. RAM disabled, RGSS enabled.

  • Students can use the DyKnow app any time, including when teacher is not monitoring / running a DyKnow class.
  • If students type anything into the DyKnow app URL bar, their text will be sent to Google Safe Search first instead of navigating directly to the searched text. If a student typed FastMath.com into the DyKnow app URL bar, they would first see the Fast Math listing within Google Safe Search results.

4. RAM enabled, RGSS enabled.

  • Students can only use the DyKnow app when their teacher is monitoring / running a DyKnow class
  • Any text entered into the DyKnow app URL bar will immediately be redirected to see the results of that search in Google Safe Search. If a student typed FastMath.com into the DyKnow app URL bar, they would first see the Fast Math listing within Google Safe Search results.
