hmmm... There really is better ways of doing these kind of things. While i can understand that when your at school and your using school property
they can have monitoring software toensure that kids don't do anything "bad" on it. At the same what student do afterhours has nothing to do with
the school and the fact there propably where no acceptable policies in place to regulate when students can be monitored. I say burn them, what
students do in their bedroom with their machines is the parents responsiblity and not the Schools.
I looked after a schools computer lab of about 200 machines and I despised the use of Monitoring programs so I only allowed to normal shadow options
that will ask the student to allow an incoming connection.
But I prefer machine lockdown. With very little effort you can lock down a machine to a point where the student can only run the programs needed as
well as allow certain sites no matter where they are which I prefer. If they required anything extra they would be unable to install unless if it is
done by a technician that has the appropiate access and only apun approval ofcourse. Yes this is alot of red tape but I sure as hell would be freaked
out if I knew somebody could be watching me over my laptops webcam. (Mine is always disabled unless I need it)
Anyway.. I say burn them... they deserve it.
