In a typical computer laboratory setup, like that of the University of the Immaculate Conception, it is difficult for teachers to move around every now and then just to monitor the students while doing the activity. One strategy for better classroom management is to use computer-aided tools that monitor students’ activities especially while in these laboratories. The purpose of this comparative study is to examine whether or not the teachers and students of the university are aware of the existing monitoring tools and to determine which monitoring tool is preferred by the teachers. The researchers compared the monitoring features of LanSchool, a third-party software, with that of the monitoring features of Active Directory Domain Controller. In the course of the study, the researchers tested the two monitoring tools by performing actual prohibition and authorization of identified software applications and websites. The results of the test shows that both monitoring tools are effective in helping the faculty manage the class better. The researchers were able to conclude that, in the UIC setting, LanSchool is preferred by users because of the ease of installation, configuration and use. It is important to note however that LanSchool is easier to bypass.
