What Educational Apps or Sites does it work with?
Einstein’s Agent uses keywords in the Title-bar of the active window to determine the nature of the student’s activity. By default, all activities are classified as gaming unless otherwise identified as educational by the presence of educational keywords in the title bar of the active window.
So for example, if the current activity was viewing a youtube video, then it would be classified as gaming unless the title bar of the active window contained an “educational keyword”.
