turn off algobox while teaching

Postby woodmanc » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:02 pm

Hi - I would like to run algodoo in my class with algobox access turned off so the students are not distracted. I have inet management software running, but it does not limit access for algobox. Is there any way to turn it off temporarily while the students are workingg?

Algodoo unfortunately does not provide a method, however, it is probably better to block http://www.algodoo.com/algobox with the internet manager, since otherwise a student can figure out how to turn it on again (from within Algodoo).

Is this a possible solution?

There is no standard way to temporary disable algobox, but you could do it on network layer.
For example add block ( by domain name in hosts file.
Dream of Algodoo as game development engine...
