How To: Manage Internet Access on Shared Devices

If you have shared devices in your classroom you may be reluctant to give them Internet access since you’re not sure which students are using them. Here are some possible solutions:

  • Create a checkout system similar to how books are checked out from the school library.
  • Create login and logout web clips on the shared devices. Make sure your students always use the web clip login when they receive the device and use the log out web clip before they return the device.
  • Set the authentication lifetime. For example, for an hour-long class set the authentication lifetime to 60 minutes.
