How do you monitor what students are doing on the computer

Computers offer students some unique opportunities to stray off task. Surfing the Internet, reading personal e-mail, or accessing non-class related files can be problems. At CSU, computer classrooms are set up in such a way that instructors can easily see students' computer screens, so a little vigilance can help to avoid abuse of the technology. Also, experienced instructors have reported that directly addressing this kind of off task behavior--perhaps even making a note in your course policy statement about its unacceptability--goes a long way toward curtailing it.
