How to monitor student screens

Note: Monitoring student screens is only available if enabled by district admins. If you don't see the controls described in this article, your district has disabled this feature.

Student screen thumbnails are visible once a class is started unless an administrator has disabled the screen viewing feature.

If you are in Tab View (seeing only a list of open tabs for each student) and want to switch to Thumbnail View, click the Thumbnail View icon in the upper right.

Securly Classroom sends a request to devices for a screen update about once every 10 seconds. However, if the device has recently been restarted or asleep, it may take up to 2 minutes for it to begin responding to requests.
