Keep Students on Task Online
Eliminate internet distractions to enhance student learning.
Real-Time EdTech Management
See how individual students and entire classes are using the internet and web-based tools in real time.
Easily identify when students are connected to the network (green dot) and when they’re not (gray dot). Get them back on task in a click.
Automated Rule Application
Multiple rule options enable teachers to allow or block access to specific websites for individuals, small groups or classes. Schedule custom rules to apply automatically to every class period.
Create a list of select sites students can access. Use this to lock down browsers during testing and focus learning around specific sites.
Keep the internet wide open while blocking access to a handful of sites you don’t want students to visit. (Netflix, perhaps?)
Detailed Usage Reports
View individual and class usage histories to see how students are using the internet down to the minute. Print reports for student- and parent-teacher conferences.
How Does NetRef Work?
1. Implement NetRef
NetRef can be easily installed as an appliance in BYOD and mixed device environments or is available as a cloud-based solution in districts and schools who have 1:1 Chromebook implementations.
2. Register Devices
Students and/or school staff register in seconds — no device downloads necessary. This process is only done once, and it works on desktops, laptops, tablets, or mobile devices of any kind. 1:1 Chromebook schools just log in the same way as they did before NetRef!
3. Manage Your Classroom
Instantly begin monitoring student internet use in your classroom to minimize distractions and maximize learning.
