    EDIT: Ahh it uses an agent. Bit overkill just to track logins. Its probably better to go with some classroom management software like ABTutor or Impero
    But equally "Classroom management software" is overkill when you just want to manage logins.

    I work with norphy, and userlock is a precise, focussed solution to a precise set of problems we wanted to solve in a way that other solutions (including the full-blown "classroom management software" alternatives) were not. For example, it very neatly solves the problem with exam account scheduling that I describe in this post.

    I think you have to look and say what do you have in place is better to replace existing solution with another one and what are benefits etc. Even before I worked at Impero when working in the 'real world' I always subscribed to theory of if as part of project I could replace something that I was going to need to replace in years time and future proof me then I will try and get money to do that.

    Is Impero simple enough for teachers to use for classroom management though?

    Looks a little complicated to me.

    Quite. This is why we solved the problem I was having in the other post with Userlock rather than just with a bunch of scripts, so that we could take advantage of the extra options it offered us to improve our service.

    i tested out Impero , as well as lanschool and ab tutor .

    Abtutor was the best priced and easiest to use .

    The problem i found with either Impereo or lanschool ( cant remember which ), the version i used if the teacher didnt reset the policy lets say ' disable usb drives' even after a reset they was still disabled ! Not very good with some teachers ! .

    I like abtutors licencing as well , we only have 4 ICT suites + a smaller one so it was quite cheap ! .

  6. Thanks to 2097 from:

    Thanks, yeh thats what I thought.

    The other software seems more designed for network admins rather than teachers.

    PsLoggedOn lets you check whether anyone is logged on to a particular computer or search the network to see whether a particular user is logged on.

    Not quite what you are looking for, but it seemed worth adding to the list.
