How to restrict student in-class web browsing activity with Sanako Study 1200

  1. In the Group pane, from the Activity dropdown selector, choose web browsing.
  2. if your students
    1. do an open-ended web quest, choose radio button: open policy to be able to provide a list of non-allowable websites (e.g. YouTube.com may be useful for your students’ online research activity, but Facebook.com not)
    2. take a well-defined and –confined assessment like an online quiz, choose radio button: strict policy to be able to provide the list of allowable websites
    3. either way, put just the site address (e.g. http://www.dict.cc), without the protocol (NOT: http://www.dict.cc), or else…
  3. the web browsing activity,
    1. prevents any other browser from being opened by the student but IE
    2. begins with opening for the student the table of contents page in IE, listing the allowable websites; whenever the students closes the IE, Sanako reopens it on the table of contents page .
    3. each web activity of your student will be verified against your allow list: sanako-webbrowsing-strict-policy
  4. Note that
    1. there are some caveats, errors&glitches.
    2. the Respondus Lockdown browser (see screencast at min 18:00) installed in the LRC also can also be used to prevent students from accessing non-web-based programs on the computer they are working on; but can not be restricted to a number of web pages, nor can students receive a Table of Contents of the web pages they are allowed to go to .
