- “Both halfs” (still not the full classroom, due to lack of licenses),
- or, for small class sizes up to 16 computers, left or, preferably, right-half
- Students also need to log in, and class is not ready for the Sanako until all students show up as Student icons like the right me:
- We can get there faster once we
- upgrade to faster computers
- fix that they manually have to choose their client
- have at least the teacher already log in from her office
- Hint: Log in yourself on a couple of student computers, to have them ready for latecomers (easier to deal with them being logged in as you than if the class has to wait for 5-10 minutes).
- We can get there faster once we
- Then, choose how to display the students on your classroom map:
- Imagine you are trying to pick up an item on local time, but the previous users will return it on Japan time – or (like in the example below)`vice versa. It happens all the time here …
- We can see the misconfiguration when opening the meeting in Outlook (Desktop), but we rarely do this.
- What gets routinely done here is opening the meeting in the OWA of the organizer:
- is there an obvious way to see the time zone for the organizer?
- The best I have found is this, and it is anything but obvious, deeply hidden in the OWA settings dialogues. Any change with Office365?

- The interface has changed quite a bit, but don’t worry: the basic processes are still the same. Here is a very quick rundown:
- You now have to start from the Calendar / + new Event, like so: and
- To add resources
- Don’t try the “button:add room”, you will get this error:
- instead, either type the resource email address
- or click the + next to “Attendees’
- to preview the availability, you can still click top menu: “Scheduling assistant”.
- and it tries to help you by giving more explicit information about conflicts:
- when happy with how you scheduled your “event”, click top menu: “send”

New problem in Sanako Study 1200 version 7 with 2 student recorder exe’s running simultaneously on client, under different user accounts?
- UPDATE: Also an issue in the spring term on the teacher computer..
- UPDATE: still an issue in the spring term.
- This cannot be good (brought this student down).
- How is this possible?
- Presumably the student logged out an admin during a Sanako activity (we frequently have to place late-coming students sit and use an administrator computer, but they do not always get at term start that they are not supposed to log the admin out and in)
- So this seems another (special) case of the recently observed student managing to exit the Sanako during an activity (helper.exe was running alright).
