GoGuardian
GoGuardian Teacher is great for a teacher who needs a way to monitor student activities and work time on a laptop. It is easy to set up, simple to use and helps to keep students accountable when online in class. It integrates with Google Classroom which is a big help. It is more powerful for teachers experienced in using tech in the classroom. The archiving ability is great but the UX needs to improve.

Blizz is great for any kind of video conferencing call, it brings a lot to the table and manages to execute its service very well. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an affordable and solid video conferencing experience. In my opinion, it would suit both medium and small teams the most.

Pros
GoGuardian
  • Cloud-based. Teachers do not have to monitor from just one device - they can do it from any device.
  • GoGuardian allows teachers to lock a student's screen when he/she needs the students attention.
  • GoGuardian allows the teacher to view all students' devices simultaneously.

TeamViewer
  • Very effective linking of different devices. Easy to join from anywhere/any device by just entering the meeting ID.
  • Minimal, intuitive interface that takes very little getting used to. I skipped the help section and still figured everything out within a couple of minutes.
  • Pairs with Outlook so you can view all your existing contacts from within Blizz. Really saves time and stops anyone being missed out.
  • Can support up to 300 participants.
  • Reasonable pricing structure. Free for personal use and still good value for the higher-level packages. You can also add local numbers for free.
  • Live text chat for use during a meeting if you have something to say but don’t want to interrupt the presenter.
  • A secured connection so there are no issues sending sensitive documents etc.
  • The audio and video quality has always been excellent (although I’ve come to expect this from any conferencing software nowadays).

Cons
GoGuardian
  • Scope of device monitoring (laptops, desktop computers and not just Chromebooks)
  • Needs an updated interface to more accurately fit advances in technology
  • Ability to more easily interact and adjust with a student's device

TeamViewer
  • You can sense that the product is still in development/introduction stages, but has the potential of getting bigger
  • Some UI improvements are necessary
  • Not a lot of public awareness

For a technology-heavy school, it is a necessary and good tool for managing classroom use of laptops. It is easy to set up and use. Helps track time on task and internet usage. Another source of data when speaking to parents about student work and activity. Can help plan and manage work time when you have limited devices.

Support Rating
GoGuardian
The support is great. On the rare occasion that I've had to reach out to support they have been very quick to respond and extremely helpful. I've also had teachers reach out directly to support themselves. Most of the time I don't even know that a teacher has reached out to support until after the fact. They always seem satisfied.

The last time I had interaction with Blizz by TeamViewer support was directly on their website in the Help option, I sent them a written message, and in a few minutes, they had already answered me. I think the technical service is efficient.

I have used Hapara in a previous school district. GoGuardian is more user-friendly and easier to setup. I do think GoGuardian has some room on improving the ease of finding some areas of the program, but once you know the path to get there it is quick.

I’ve previously used household names like Zoom and Skype for my video conference calls, but neither provides as much as Blizz in terms of scheduling features. And to be honest, Blizz’s user interface and connectivity are as good if not better than those platforms, despite its relative newness.

Return on Investment
GoGuardian
  • We have been able to identify inappropriate websites that students have discovered. For example anonymous proxies, movie streaming, etc. Through this software, we have been able to identify the students and in turn block the websites.
  • We have been able to identify which students have been using other user's accounts. This was an unintended side effect of the software. If a teacher knows that a student is using a Chromebook but the student is not showing up in the software, we are easily able to deduce that the user must be using another student's account.

  • Blizz ensures that my service quality rating is not compromised due to bad connectivity. Return on investment is 100%.
  • Blizz has a modern and simple design. This makes it easy for the user to get started as there is no learning curve.
  • Remote screen share is slick and the Blizz controls on-screen take up minimal space, taking nothing away from the user experience.
