iPad management tool that enables teachers to control and personalize every student's device

Overview

Casper Focus allows teachers to manage student iPads while class is in session. Teachers may use it to focus students on a specific app or website on the student’s iPads or send custom messages to them to gain their attention. Casper Focus is free to download from the Apple app store.

APPROACH

Casper Focus’ major functions include:

  • Restrict student’s use of the iPad to a specific app or web page during class or exams
  • Distribute eBooks
  • Send onscreen messages to students to gain their attention
  • Reset iPad passcodes for students who forgot theirs
  • Share their own (or a student’s) device with the class via Apple TV

Regarding the first function (restricting student use of an app or website), teachers may use it both in class or during exams to prevent students from using other applications at the same time. Teachers can do so by first logging onto Casper Focus on their own iPad, choosing an app or website for a specific student (or all students) to focus on, and finally exempting absent or specific students from restriction.



IMPLEMENTATION

Casper Focus is available as a native iPad app.

PRICING

Casper Focus is free to download from the Apple app store.
