Version 7.30.2146.7300

New Features

  • Limit IP Address Browsing — By entering the IP address of a website (i.e. http://70.235.50.6), students were sometime able to bypass the web limiting feature. Insight now has the option to block all web browsing via IP addresses.
  • Choose Random Student — Allows the teacher to let Insight randomly select a student. The winning student is notified that they have been selected.
  • Co-browse the Internet — Allows teachers to simultaneously launch a browser on all or selected student workstations and have the students view the web browser on the teacher’s computer. This feature is perfect for teachers that want to demonstrate the navigation of a website (Microsoft Internet Explorer only).
  • Randomize Test Questions — Questions are now presented in a random order to prevent students from copying the answers of their neighbors. Teachers still see questions in a consistent order for progress tracking.
  • Available Websites — Teachers can now implement a launch page that displays the websites that a student is allowed to browse or the websites they are not allowed to browse.
  • Enhanced Web Limiting — In previous versions of Insight, if a student was browsing the web when the teacher clicked Limit Web, the student could continue to view any page they had currently loaded. This feature has been modified. Now, if a teacher clicks Limit Web, any web browsers that are open on the student machine will be redirected to the Insight Available Websites page if the website is blocked via the white or black list.
  • Unlimited Internet History — Insight now prevents students from deleting their Internet Explorer browsing history. This feature is not supported on Internet Explorer 8.0.
  • Auto-Refresh of Running Applications — The running applications window now automatically refreshes so that a teacher can view what applications a student is running in real-time.
  • Windowed Broadcast Memory — In the past, if a student resized the teacher’s broadcast windows, that size would be lost during the next broadcast. Insight now remembers the size and position of the broadcast windows.
  • Multi-Platform Voting — Teachers can now send out class votes to both Mac and Windows student workstations.
  • Increased Workstation Support — In the past Insight was limited to 250 students in the thumbnail or details view. The Insight Console now supports 3000 students, however when selecting a subset of students it must not contain more than 250 students.
  • This further enhances the use of channel 0 so that a teacher or technician can view and control any student workstation and see all action commands from any teacher workstation on all the channels across the network. Channel 0 can not view teacher workstation’s screen; it can only see what their actions are via a live info box at the bottom of the channel 0 console.
  • Teacher Profiles — Teachers can now save their console settings and customizations that they can easily load in the future. The following settings are saved in a profile: class lists, thumbnail layouts, allowed and blocked websites, allowed and blocked applications, limit task manager status, limit IP address browsing status, limit print button state, limit USB button state, limit Mute button state, and custom blank screen messages. Allows teachers to have a custom set of settings for each class they teach because each class is not always the same. Teacher profiles are also useful for teachers who share computer labs but want to control the lab in different ways.
  • One-to-One Enhancements — Insight v7.3 includes several enhancements to support one-to-one schools, including class lists that automatically locate student machines and change their channel to the teacher’s channel, profiles that load according to class lists, and student notebook power level monitoring.

Fixes

  • 242, Resolved issue where the Teacher Console’s Status Messages window and Security utility erratically displayed Show Teacher Screen ended event after returning from Multiple Remote Control.

  • 482, Resolved issue where the test did not run on a limited Student account, if the same test was sent to another user on the same Student computer. This issue occurred on Windows XP only.
  • 516, Resolved issue where it was not possible to create a New Folder within a New Folder.
  • 519, Resolved issue where the Test Builder created an erratic test file while opening a non-existent .lst file. This occurred when a non-existent .lst file name is entered in the File Name field through the Test Builder.

Version 7.21.2129.7203

Fixes

  • When Insight Client was installed on workstations, the workstations disconnected from the wireless network and reconnected as soon as the Student.exe service started. This occurred because the Start/Stop control was being sent to the Zero Configuration Wireless Service.

New Features

  • Muting: Teachers can mute the sound on student computers.
  • Allow Task Manager: By default, the Windows Task Manager is disabled to prevent students from hacking the computer. In some instances, students need access to Task Manager. The Task Manager can now be enabled via Insight.
  • Toolbar Configuration: The toolbar can be customized by adding, rearranging or removing the icons.
  • Student Name from Active Directory: Insight normally displays the Windows or Novell login name. Now, if the Student Display Name is available in Active Directory, it is displayed in the Login Name column.
  • Insight Teacher Kiosk Mode: The Insight Teacher Console can be run in Kiosk mode. In Kiosk mode, the console cannot be minimized or closed.
  • Secure Mode: Insight can be configured to require a password to access the console. This password must match the password that is entered during the secure student install. If it does not match the password that is entered during the secure student install, the student screens on that channel will appear frosted out and the rogue teacher console has no control over the students on that channel.

Enhancements

  • Key logging will not capture passwords when in a Windows Security dialog.
  • File transfer is now available from a right-click while hovering over a student workstation.
  • Blank Screen Enhancements: The last 10 blank screens messages are saved and easily accessible through the arrow to the right on the blank screens button. When the blank screen message appears on the student computers, it is now sized to better fit the screen.

  • The Console’s Status Messages window and Security Utility unexpectedly shows three Remote Control events on starting and stopping Show Student.

  • On Windows XP Japanese, the Task Manager stays blocked after uninstalling Insight Student.

  • The White/Black list of applications or web sites performs an erratic check for duplicate entries.

Enhancements

  • Teacher: Thumbnails can now be arranged in the shape of the classroom. Each thumbnail has its own layout that is automatically saved.
  • Student: Students can now type a question to the teacher through Insight. The question can be viewed by the teacher by hovering the mouse over the thumbnail or from the Last Question column in the details view.
  • Teacher: Teachers can change student channels from the console. In previous versions of Insight, the only way to change the channel was to re-install Insight or run setchannel.exe. This must be enabled by an administrator with the EnableChannelSelect utility.
  • Teacher: The console now has four thumbnail sizes to choose from. The smallest size allows you to see more than 80 student machines on a 15” monitor without having to scroll.
  • Teacher: A drop-down menu has been added below the Web and Application limiting buttons to make it easier to configure these features.

  • Teacher: It is now possible to switch between Remote Control and View Only by clicking the arrow to the right of the Control button. In previous versions, you had to stop the session to switch.

Fixes
