Teachers can now send a message to students and lock student devices.
Watch the brief training video by clicking play on the image below!
Access this feature from the gray "drawer" on the right side of your screen while you are monitoring a class. This is the area where you see Activity Tracker, and send Questions.
You can also send messages and unlock students while you are viewing any student's thumbnail in "Big View."
1. Start monitoring any class
2. Select the bell icon: on the right side of your screen, 4th tab down and click the blue "Send a Message" button
3. Select the message "Attention!" or write your own message.
Tip: Include a URL in your message! It will automatically launch on each student's device.
4. Choose if you would like to lock devices, or leave them unlocked when your message is sent
5. Send your message
*If locked, student devices will remain locked until you manually unlock them by removing the message. Screens, keyboards and trackpads will not work while locked.
