  • A progress bar showing how much of the lab the student has finished.
  • An Open Console button that opens the student's lab console.
  • A Thumbnail button that opens a thumbnail of the student's lab console.

Instructor console actions

Course instructors can perform the following actions from the Instructor Console:

Action Description
Take Over The Take Over button is located within an opened lab console. The Take Over action allows the tenant instructor to gain full access to the student’s lab console.

The tenant instructor can make changes to the work the student has done or complete steps the student has not yet done. The instructor can also view information about the connection strength of the student's lab console.

Broadcast Display The Broadcast Display button is located within an opened lab console. Broadcast Display broadcasts the student’s lab console to every student in the class.
Blank All Screens Closes (blanks) the lab console of each student in the class.
Manual Opens the lab's instructional manual.
Reset When you click to open a student’s lab console, the Reset action is available. This resets the vApp for the lab console and returns the lab to its initial state. The student is not able to recover any work done on the lab and must repeat it. Reset is useful when a student has encountered unrecoverable issues.
Help Allows the instructor to mark a Raised Hand help request as resolved. When you click the Help button, the system opens or collapses a panel.

The panel consists of all raised hand help requests. You can click the checkmark to indicate that the request is resolved.

The computer icon next to the resolve checkmark opens the student’s console.

Counter for Raised Hand When a Raised Hand help request occurs, a counter appears with the help request.
Note: Respective options are only visible if the tenant option Allow instructors to reset lab from class or Allow instructors to send new token from class is enabled by a tenant administrator.
