Faronics Insight and Lewis and Clark Community College Case Study

“Before we started using Insight, we faced numerous problems in our computer labs,” says Mary Lou Watson, an Internet Course Technician and Part-Time Instructor at Lewis & Clark Community College. ”As instructors, we constantly endured student mouse click activity while trying to teach the class. Instead of paying attention to the course material, students were surfing the Internet.”

Faronics Insight enabled the instructors of Lewis and Clark Community College to harness the educational and productive aspects of their computers while minimizing classroom distractions. “Now that we have Insight, we [the instructors] are able to stop students from surfing the Internet and disrupting classroom instruction,” says Georgia Voils, another Internet Course Technician at Lewis & Clark Community College. “I also like the feature where students can quietly notify the instructor that they have a question without fear of disrupting the class.” “Once I was introduced to the Insight Teacher Console, it didn’t take me long to learn how to use it in a variety of ways,” says Georgia. “For example, even when supervising students during examinations, I still have to answer the phone and check other students into the lab. This used to be a very difficult task; but now with Insight it’s a breeze!”
