Monitor Students in Class

Learn how to keep track of what your students are doing in your class!

November 14, 2023

Monitor Students

In a class navigate to the student tab. In this tab you will see a list of all of the students in the class. Next to their avatar is a small dot which indicates their current status, and the title of the current website they are on is also displayed. Monitoring happens automatically so you don’t need to do anything!

Status Indicator

The grey dot indicates if the student is not in URSOR.

The Green dot indicates if they are on task.

The orange dot indicates if a student is on a part of a website that was not specifically assigned to the lesson. for example you may have assigned astrosafe.co/tutorials, and they have navigated to astrosafe.co/blog in many cases the student is still on task, but it can be worth checking the url or their device to make sure everything is okay!

The red dot indicates if they are on a website outside of the lesson. In this situation the filter system should prevent them from getting into any trouble but it could be a sign that the student has wondered onto content from another lesson and may need a bit of guidance!

Student History

If you want to see what a student has previously visited ASTRO lets you view the previous browsing history of a student. If you click on their card in the student tab it will show you all of the students browsing history so you can make sure they have been on track throughout the lesson and spent the appropriate amount of time on certain bits of content.

If you need any additional support please reach out at support@astrosafe.co and our team will get back to you as soon as they can!

Frequently Asked

What is URSOR?

URSOR is a brand-new app designed to allow kids to search the internet in a safe, appropriate manner. At URSOR we never track, allow advertising, or collect data of your child’s usage. Our goal at URSOR is to make a useful, safe platform for kids to start their early digital education. URSOR also allows kids to save and organise their previous searches in a visual way that helps retain knowledge and make connections between all of their interests!

What is a 'Browser for Kids'?

For us at URSOR, an Internet for Kids means a safe place where kids can explore  age-appropriate content on their favourite topics without the distractions of ads, click-bait, and hyperactive targeted content.  Inside URSOR there is no social media, no auto-play YouTube, and no mindless and passive attention-killing content.  Kids should be able to access the vast knowledge of the web without the exploitation of their vulnerable developing brains.

How does URSOR help children prepare for the digital world?

You would never throw your kid into the deep-end of a pool before he can swim, so we wouldn’t suggest doing the same with unfiltered, open-ended surfing online. URSOR starts kids slowly by introducing them to the basics of searching, choosing, and navigating sources. We remove the distractions of ads and excessive paid-for links so kids can learn first to view, digest, and retain information in a healthy age-appropriate manner.

Where can I try URSOR?

STAY TUNED! URSOR is being fine tuned and polished as we speak and will be released by Autumn 2022. Until then please sign-up here for weekly updates on our progress, interesting links for kids, and our super-helpful blog posts!
