What are you using for Chromebook monitoring
Can't get GoGuardin in my region as they don't sell here (Quebec, Canada).
We experienced communication delays and software issues with Omnito.
Seeing many new packages. Anybody have experience with NetsupportSchool's Chromebook offering?
We basically want real time monitoring of tabs , pushing URLs, block screen and casting teacher screen/student screens from within the same interface would be a nice bonus as well.
I also saw 'Crostini' which seems very low cost... we are open to anything functional!

Classroom Software / Video & Microphone Surveillance
I'm the lead IT for a school house where we have 6 classrooms. The students are taught by several different teachers and are at times allowed free-study time. During this time, the staff would like to be able to monitor their students from their office computers.
We've used NetSupport in the past, but it does not offer webcam support and the microphone does not have a feature to be 'always on' to allow streaming audio.
We're looking for some very basic software to put on the class room podium machines to (a) allow us to see what the teacher would see / observe the class and (b) hear what is going on in the classroom.
Does anyone know of any software that has those features?
Edit: The very basic concept would be to have a webcam on the podium facing the class, and some form of software which would allow our teacher to turn it on and see/listen to the students.
