Assisted Monitoring

An online software solution to help schools to monitor the students' behaviours when they are surfing the Internet.

SWGfL Assisted Monitoring is a combined solution, bringing together the UAM(User Activity monitoring) technology and also a specially designed service to check the data and alerts that it generates and, where necessary, takes action to contact the school and provide support in resolving the relevant issue.

The Assisted Monitoring Service will be operated by SWGFL, and be focused on rapid identification of alerting to serious violations. communication with the school and coordinated action and advice to help to resolve the issue. Rather than removing risk or responsibility from the school, it will help the school to have a good level of monitoring with the confidence that anything picked up by the UAM technology of a severe nature will not go unnoticed.
